Jake Owen Releases Track Listing, Cover Art For ‘American Love’

unnamed-1

Jake Owen‘s latest RCA Nashville project, American Love, will showcase the writing talent of several of Nashville’s top tunesmiths when it is released on July 29. The project includes the work of writers including Jaren Johnston, Luke Laird, Shane McAnally, Ross Copperman, Nathan Chapman, Andrew Dorff, Ashley Gorley, Dallas Davidson, Matt Dragstrem, Paul Reter, Brent Stenzel, and more.

In addition to contributing songs, Chris Stapleton and Hillary Lindsey also provided background vocals on the project.

“This record has been very enlightening because I found myself through the songs. I got back to basics with American Love,” Owen 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.”

Producers/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, Owen is a co-producer on three tracks with Lukas Bracewell.

“Over the past few years I’ve experienced the unexpected,” he says. “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. I can’t wait for people to hear these new tunes. We just added a horn section to my band out on the road and the energy I feel on stage with these guys takes it to another level.”

American Love follows Owen’s 2013 project Days of Gold, which included hits “Beachin,” and “What We Ain’t Got.”
