Jason Owen with Tania Kernaghan 'Back Home Again'
Jason Owen is back with a stunning version of one of John Denver’s most iconic songs – ‘Back Home Again’. This version is a duet with fellow country music star Tania Kernaghan.
The single will be released on May 14 – the same day as Jason’s new upcoming album – “Jason Owen Sings John Denver: The Acoustic Sessions”. The album also features such classics as ‘Take Me Home’, ‘Country Roads’, ‘Thank God I’m a Country Boy’, ‘Rocky Mountain High’ and ‘Calypso’.
With the release of his first album in four years, the X Factor star will tour nationally from August onwards.
This new album follows on from the huge success of Jason’s first tribute album to John Denver – “Jason Owen Sings John Denver: The 20th Anniversary Album” which spent seven weeks on the ARIA charts. A national tour followed including shows at The Sydney Opera House.
“I’m probably one of the biggest John Denver fans in the entire country, and have been ever since I was a boy,” says Jason. “The very first song I ever performed on a national stage was the Denver classic ‘Annie’s Song’ when I was first on the X Factor back in 2012. ‘Back Home Again’ is one of my all-time favourites and is something I have always related to, given my country upbringing in Albert, NSW. To duet with Tania on it was just incredible as she’s truly one of Australian country music’s all-time greats.”
In between putting the finishing touches to the album in 2020, Jason used the downtime to make enormous inroads with his charity Doin It For Rural Aussie Kids which supports regional and isolated kids across the country. For his efforts, the 27-year-old recently won two awards in the prestigious 7News Young Achiever NSW/ACT Awards picking up the Freemasons Of NSW/ACT Community Service Award as well the popular vote for the People’s Choice Award.
The single ‘Back Home Again’ will be on all digital/streaming platforms from May 14 AND physical copies of “Jason Owen Sings John Denver: The Acoustic Sessions” is available for pre-order now from Sanity & JB Hi-Fi
