The Beachin' hitmaker had some down time before playing his set at the Ohio State Fair in Columbus, so he decided to respond to a tweet sent from Ohio State University student Eric Bennett earlier in the day, inviting the superstar to his birthday festivities.

In an interview with Taste Of Country, Bennett says the concert venue was just a short drive from his home, so Owen showed up with a couple of his friends and stayed at the house party for about 30 minutes.

The fan talked college football with his music hero and Owen even borrowed a guitar to sing his hit tune Barefoot Blue Jean Night for party guests.

After the visit, Bennett and his pals attended the concert, where Owen dedicated his song Heaven to his new pal.

Bennett says, "He gave an awesome intro... about how I tweeted at him that I was celebrating my birthday and how he showed up at my house and he said, 'So I'm playing this song tonight for Eric'. That made it even that much more special."
