Jake Owen: “I’ve Never Been So Excited About Music In My Life”

Jake Owen’s brand new single, “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” is now available on iTunes! The feel-good summer song is the debut track from Jake’s forthcoming third studio album, set to hit stores later this year.

CountryMusicIsLove recently caught up with Jake to chat about the song, his new album, and his upcoming tour with country superstar Keith Urban.

“‘Barefoot Blue Jean Night,’ is my new single and I’m super fired up about it,” he tells us. “I think it’s going to be a big, summertime, fun song.”

Speaking of summertime, Jake is gearing up to hit the road this summer on Keith Urban’s Get Closer 2011 World Tour.

“Being on the Keith Urban tour this year, it’s a big platform for me to step up and deliver some good music and use that opportunity to make some fans.”

“Hopefully by the time we are out there, this song will be rocking and rolling and will give me one more hit song be able to play in front of a large large group of people,” Jake continues.

It’s been more than two years since Jake has released new music (his sophomore album Easy Does It hit stores February 2009), so he’s anxious to get the new album out there. Jake says he has a feeling fans will love it.

“It’s really different, it has a big sound to it,” he says with a smile. “I’ve never been so excited about music in my life. This is a big big record for me. I can feel it. It feels really good.”

Fans can purchase “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” on iTunes for $1.29 HERE. If you purchase the song now, you will be able to use the “complete my album” option on iTunes when the record is released, so you’ll only pay for the tune once.
