Jake Owen Announces New Album, “American Love”

A new chapter is beginning for Jake Owen as he announces the details of his fifth studio album, American Love, due out July 29.

Jake Owen album coverAmerican Love is the result of the Florida natives journey and soul-searching after a tumultuous couple of years. “Over the past few years I’ve experienced the unexpected,” he said in a statement. “My Dad received a cancer diagnosis and I, unfortunately, went through a divorce.”

With those events taking Jake through some undoubtedly tough times, one would venture to guess that his latest music would lean a little more toward heartbreak. “I found myself gravitating to songs that had more of a positive vibe and actually made me feel better by singing them. Music truly does seem to help the healing process.”

Jake’s debut single from the new album, “American Country Love Song,” is currently rising up the billboard charts and sits at the number 17 spot. Reigning CMA Male Vocalist, Chris Stapleton and songwriter Hillary Lindsay can be heard adding their voices to some background vocals throughout the album.

“This record has been very enlightening because I found myself through the songs. I got back to basics with American Love,” Jake says of the project. “This is me, this is what I want to say and this is what I want people to remember me for.”

Jake recently signed on to participate in The City of Hope Celebrity Softball Game during CMA Music Fest, June 7 and will appear on Kenny Chesney’s Spread The Love Tour on select dates.
