[photogallerylink id=59770 align=right] The long wait is over, if you are a [lastfm link_type=""]Jake Owen[/lastfm] fan, groupie, stalker, or just a regular person who likes his music. You see Jake has or at least his record company has, just released, Barefoot Blue Jean Night. Jake says the first single is just the tip of the iceberg on an album that he’s truly proud of. Jake also says that it is his best, most fully realized album–the one where he actually had the time to focus on finding the best songs, from beginning to end.
Jake actually co-wrote only one song on Barefoot Blue Jean Night. Jake by the way turned 30 yesterday so if you want to do something special for him in honor of the occasion, I suggest buying his album. Its good, really good. I asked him how it felt: ”I’m excited. This record is a big, big step for me in my career in the way I recorded it and went out and really spent a lot of time divin’ in to findin’ the best songs possible. This record is somethin’ that I really am so proud of that I really think people can put it in and listen to it from top to bottom, and every song is just a great, great song. So, that’s what you make records for, you know, not just for songs, but for albums and for memories and to be able to throw it in your truck and just listen to it from top to bottom and never have to hit the ‘next’ button.”
