Congratulations to Jake Owen, whose new, four-song Endless Summer EP scored this week’s highest debut on Billboard‘s Top Country Albums sales chart, debuting at number-two and scoring big with online fans, becoming the number-one digital country album of the week! Jake says it’s an amazing feeling:  “I’ve been at the point in my career and life — and not just music, but many instances where you want people to care. Like, I remember, like, the reason I left Tallahassee, Florida, early — left my twin brother there, all my friends, dropped out of college with nine hours of school left — and moved to Nashville is ’cause I wanted people to care. I wanted to sing my songs. I wanted to sing songs that were about my life. I wanted to be an artist, but I wanted people to care about what I was doing. And I moved to Nashville — it’s taken me this six, seven, eight, nine years of my life to build a brand of who I am and what I’m all about. And to put out an EP now, or an album — whether it’s Barefoot Blue Jean Night or this new Endless Summer EP — and see the reaction to it, completely now fills that feeling that I always wanted. It’s validation that people do respect what I’m doing, and they want to hear what I’m doing, and they care. And now they’re waiting to see what it is that you’re gonna bring to the table, and you know, you can’t bring somethin’ that doesn’t taste good to the table. You gotta keep on bringin’ the yummy treats, man. So I gotta bring some yummy treats!”
