"2011 Arkansas Country Artist of The Year"
In the summer of 2011, Aaron debuted his self-released and highly anticipated CD "Troublemaker" recorded at EMI Publishing Nashville and produced by Nashville's Hit Songwriter Robert Arthur, Chris Latham and artist Aaron Owens. The CD includes songs penned by mega writers such as Jeff Bates, Kirk Roth, Don Bradley, Tony Stampley, Rod Taylor, Robert Arthur, Johnny Bulford, Danny Myrick and also four of Aaron's original works for the project.
"Troublemaker" has contributions by some of Nashville's premiere musicians. The roster starts with producer Robert Arthur himself on acoustic guitar, Wes Pryor on percussion and bassist Mark Johnson. Mike Severs (Lead Guitar), who's performed on numerous sessions on Music Row, brought his talents along with Justin Williamson (Fiddle) and Randle Currie (Pedal Steel Guitar) both of which currently perform with country superstar Brad Paisley of Arista Records.
Aaron Owens performs throughout the country and has accumulated opening credits with many major artists such as Blake Shelton, Gary Allan, Billy Currington, John Michael Montgomery, Aaron Tippin, Jeff Bates, Johnny Hiland, T. Graham Brown, Billy Joe Royal and many others. Aaron fulfilled a dream September 2, 2011 when he had the honor of opening for Willie Nelson in Illinois. Aaron started gaining ground when Major Label interest sparked huge opportunities and a great base of eager and loyal fans across the country.
Born and raised in LA (Lower Arkansas) Aaron was bitten by the musical bug at the age of 9. His mother toured regionally in the country band (ATOC) in the mid- 80's and that helped spur his musical aspirations.
After touring regionally Aaron began to reach out to venues and fans with his live show from Georgia to Wyoming and continues to perform locally, regionally and nationally.
Aaron's music debuted and remained on overseas radio and charts in countries such as Spain, Holland, and Austrailia with a sweeping appeal. Aaron keeps contact and music with the European Country Music Association and is bringing his brand of music to North American Radio in the summer of 2011. The future is bright for one of country music's hottest rising stars.
