RCA NASHVILLE TO RELEASE A DUET VERSION OF OWEN’S HIT SINGLE “AMERICAN COUNTRY LOVE SONG” FEATURING RONNIE DUNN TO COUNTRY RADIO
Toronto, ON – RCA Platinum recording artist Jake Owen is thrilled that his highly-anticipated fifth studio album, American Love, is available everywhere TODAY.
“This is a great day! I spent a lot of time making sure that this album is full of songs that I think will make people smile and that I want to sing every night,” says Owen. “Unexpectedly, this recurring theme of love kept showing up even though I was experiencing some of the toughest times of my life while making this record. I took that as a sign to never give up on love. Love heals. Music heals. We all need to share some American Love right now in this country. I’m praying for better times for all of us.”
“American Country Love Song” is currently No. 8 and climbing on Billboard Country Airplay & Country Aircheck’s Mediabase charts in the U.S. and #8 on the Mediabase Country Radio charts in Canada.
In addition, on August 2, Sony Music Canada is sending a new duet version of “American Country Love Song” to country radio. Owen is being joined by one of his dear friends and musical influences, the tremendous vocalist Ronnie Dunn.
“When I listen to this track, I can’t help but grin from ear to ear,” reflects Owen. “I was lucky enough to go on tour with Brooks & Dunn early in my career. I would sit out on the lawn of the amphitheaters and listen to their sound check every day. To have Ronnie’s voice on a song with me is a dream come true. I have always been such a fan and when I first heard ‘American Country Love Song,’ it reminded me of the Brooks & Dunn song ‘Only In America.’ I sent the song to Ronnie and asked him if he would sing on it with me. When I received an email back from him saying that he really liked the song and would send the track back to me with his vocal, I was like a kid on Christmas morning waiting with anticipation. And man, did he nail it! I still can’t believe it. I can’t wait to hear what people think about it.”
