Jake Owen is taking both his personal life and career very seriously these days. He became a husband, and a father to baby girl Pearl in 2012, and now Jake is entertaining fans in the coveted opening spot on Jason Aldean 's Night Train tour.
In order to get his head right for all those commitments, Jake recently went through the Master Cleanse juice fast to get rid of toxins in his body. That means Jake said goodbye to beer and fast food and drank nothing but a mix of purified water, lemon, maple syrup and cayenne pepper for more than a week.
"After having a child and being married and trying to balance all this, I realized that all I was doing was adding more toxic stuff into myself," Jake explains. "This is the only way to really take your body and push a reset button, because you clear yourself completely of any bad stuff that's in it."
The cleanse allowed Jake to be a more effective leader to his band mates and crew on the road too.
He says, "I find more clarity in how to talk to people. Like, how to get on their level and encourage them as opposed to directing them."
Jake will most likely talk about his experiment with the Master Cleanse when he visits Andy Cohen on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live Thursday night at 11 p.m. Eastern.
