DADDY'S LIL' ROADIE

Thousands of fans flocked to Nashville's Music Row on Aug. 18 for Jake Owen's Beach Party, but behind the scenes, the real star was the singer's 21-month-old daughter Pearl. "We were just walking through the crowd saying 'Hey!'" Owen tells PEOPLE Country of this shot. "I love putting Pearly on my shoulders because I know before too much longer she's going to be too big to do that."
