Country music sensation Jake Owen has released his highly anticipated new single, “American Country Love Song,” which is sure to become your new summer anthem. With its energetic, carefree lyrics and catchy vibe, it’s the perfect song for a day out at the beach or chilling with friends.

“It’s been cool and I’m so flattered to read people’s comments on social media about being excited to hear my new single,” Jake said in a press release. “I think my fans have come to expect a certain kind of music from me; songs that are fun, energetic and just make you feel good. ‘American Country Love Song’ has the feeling of freedom and being young and adventurous. The first few lines of the song give examples of what love is: ‘It’s two tickets to a concert, it’s a Daytona airbrush t-shirt, wonderin’ who’s gonna kiss who first. You know what I’m talking about.’ I would say the majority of America does know what I’m talking about.”

“The single is a broad-spectrum glance in a three-minute song that describes a couple of kids living that American country love song,” he said. “But, it’s also a much larger celebration of the love story that is America itself, from cowboys and cowgirls to cheerleaders and quarterbacks in small towns and big cities. It’s the thought of, ‘Hey, let’s raise our glasses to the fact that we are all one in the same. Wherever you live in this country, we are basically living one big American country love song.”

Who can’t relate to that?

“I read a quote last week in the signature of a publisher’s email here in town and it really moved me,” said Jake. “It said, ‘Be kind, gentle and loving to everyone because everyone is fighting their own kind of battle.’ I totally get that quote. Everyone wakes up with something they’re up against but music seems to be the one thing that is healing for everybody. Going through a divorce in 2015 was a tough part of my life and I’m still dealing with it, but I’m a positive person…I always have been. Some people might have expected me to record sad songs or angry songs but my heartstrings pulled me to record songs with a common thread of love and being positive and good to people.”

The theme of love throughout Jake’s upcoming album is exactly what inspired him to buy a 1966 Volkswagen bus, which he is calling the “Love Bus,” and drive it over 1,000 miles from Nashville, Tennessee to Key West, Florida, beginning March 5.

“I have always wanted to do this,” he said. “Let’s load up in this thing and take a road trip throughout my beautiful home state of Florida and see where it takes us and document the things that happen along the way. It’s gonna be awesome!”

Stopping in Chattanooga, Atlanta, Tybee Island, Jacksonville, St. Augustine, Daytona Beach, Yero Beach and Miami, Jake will be inviting fans to meet up with him along the route.
