Trivia / Jake Owen

  • Breakthrough Hit: "Barefoot Blue Jean Night".
  • Development Hell: American Love was delayed due to its originally intended lead single "Real Life" bombing. The album was finally released with the single "American Country Love Song", and "Real Life" did not make the final cut.
  • Follow Up Failure: The #1 "American Country Love Song" was followed by "If He Ain't Gonna Love You", which promptly bombed at #37. This failure culminated in him leaving RCA Records in fall 2017.
  • What Could Have Been: Jake originally planned to be a golfer, but an injury sidelined that.
