Jake Owen American Love on LP
Fifth Studio Album featuring Chris Stapleton & Hillary Lindsey
The highly anticipated new album from RCA recording artist Jake Owen entitled American Love will be released in July 2016. "This record has been very enlightening because I found myself through the songs. I got back to basics with American Love," he 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."
Award-winning producers and songwriters Shane McAnally and Ross Copperman co-produced eight of the tracks (one of those with Luke Laird). For the first time in his career, Jake is a co-producer on three tracks with Lukas Bracewell. There are also some very special guest background vocalists on American Love, including Grammy, CMA and ACM winners Chris Stapleton and Hillary Lindsey.
American Love is a new beginning for Owen. "Over the past few years I've experienced the unexpected," he adds. "My Dad received a cancer diagnosis and I, unfortunately, went through a divorce. People probably thought I would record songs that reflected those difficult times, but 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."
