The last 48 hours have been a whirlwind for Alex Uhan from Cedarburg, Wisconsin. Alex is a country music FAN. He's passionate about the music and the artists, and that's clear to anyone who follows him on Twitter... which, up until a few days ago was less than a hundred people. He's also my Facebook friend, and a 94.5 KTI Country listener.
Two days ago, Alex tweeted about Jake Owen and what it would be like to live a life in the superstar's world...

It got the attention of Jake Owen himself, who frequently responds to fan's messages on Twitter.
You are correct about having an amazing time. Why don't you come ride the bus for a weekend? That's better than a day. Let's make it happen https://t.co/if1FthL2sI

Now, Alex is in contact with Jake's people and working out the details on his weekend excursion on the bus. I talked to Alex today about the tweet that started it all -- why did he tweet Jake Owen that day? Hear more about his passion for country music and how the last two days have felt in his world after his Twitter fame...
We'll follow up with Alex and let you know when his "live like Jake Owen weekend" starts. We are so excited for you, Alex! Thanks for sharing this life-changing moment with your hometown radio station.
