“What an awesome feeling to wake up and find out that AMERICAN LOVE is the No. 1 country album,” says Owen. “And, I can’t believe that it debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 chart. That’s a first for me and I’m so pumped about that. I poured my heart and soul into making this album and I’m thrilled to know that people like it. We are forging ahead on this great journey. I love that so many people are on this path with me.”
The debut single, “American Country Love Song,” is currently No. 6 and climbing on Billboard Country Airplay & Country Aircheck’s Mediabase charts and poised to hit the Top 5 next week.
Owen has performed 21 of the past 26 days promoting his new album. One of his most memorable moments is from July 29th. The day AMERICAN LOVE was released, Jake had a show in Minot, ND, so he drove the “Love Bus” to the local Walmart to share some love with the people there. One very special person he met was Amy, who is a leukemia survivor and had just finished her chemotherapy treatments. Owen immediately showered her with hugs and invited Amy and her family to join him on stage at his show that night. Check out Jake’s album release day recap.
