A country star’s ex-wife finds love once again  Instagram/@laceyfayeowen

Although there are still some babies coming in 2018, it’s looking like next year will also be a year of weddings, and among them is the sweet and beautiful ex-wife of Jake Owen, Lacey.

Sporting a beautiful new blonde and beachy hairdo, Lacey quietly spilled the beans on her Instagram page over the weekend. The post features a photo of the happy couple embracing near the water and a caption that reads: “2017 was amazing, but we are looking forward to all the exciting things to come for our family in 2018! ❤️💍 #engaged”

Although her page is public, Lacey is pretty private in sharing details about her personal life, so we don’t have a lot of information about her intended, but she does look very happy and sweet Pearl, her 5-year-old daughter with Jake, seems to be happy with her mom’s fella, too.

After her split from Jake in 2015, Lacey and Pearl relocated to Florida where she is closer to family. And although Jake is still based out of Nashville, the couple seems to be committed to fair co-parenting of their daughter. In spite of his active tour schedule, Jake seems to be a very present father for Pearl. Also hailing from Vero Beach, Florida, Jake frequents the Sunshine State to visit his daughter and parents.

It was definitely a big year for Jake, too. The singer-songwriter released his first greatest hits collection in November, but he also left his longtime record label home, RCA, to sign with his publisher’s Big Loud Records. And that usually means that there is a new album in the works.

After his home state was hammered by Hurricane Irma late in the year, Jake launched the “Bring Back the Sunshine” campaign in an effort to assist those affected by the disaster and to help restore the storm-ravaged state. Jake, Kenny Chesney, Jimmy Buffett and Toby Keith hosted the hurricane relief concert “Trying to Reason” last month, and extended their generosity to help other places affected by this year’s deadly rash of hurricanes.


Jake hasn’t confirmed any romantic relationships of his own since his split from Lacey, but it looks like he’s been pretty busy being a dad and a country star. And his calendar for shows in 2018 is already filling up, including several stops across Florida in January, which means more daddy-daughter bonding!
