The much-anticipated new album AMERICAN LOVE represents the best of Jake Owen both musically and personally, and that’s because the project is the result of a soul-searching journey that led him to explore the meaning of life and music.
While recording the album, he ventured down some enticing new musical paths, but eventually decided to return home to his Florida-inspired roots, embracing the unique sound for which he is popular. Personally, he worked through the pain and healing of a divorce and renewed his commitment to what really matters in life–hope, optimism and the power of love.
AMERICAN LOVE is a new beginning for Owen, who has become a beacon of positive vibes through his uplifting lyrics and melodies, optimism, love of the beach and his youthful spontaneity. This begins the exciting new chapter in his award-winning career that has earned five number one hits– ‘Barefoot Blue Jean Night,”Beachin,’ ‘The One That Got Away,’ ‘Alone with You’ and ‘Anywhere with You.’
“This record has been very enlightening because I found myself through the songs. I got back to basics with AMERICAN LOVE,” he says of the project co-produced by award-winning songwriters and producers Shane McAnally and Ross Copperman with four tracks co-produced Lukas Bracewell and Owen, “This is me, this is what I want to say and this is what I want people to remember me for. These songs promote positivity and love.”
