Jake Owen garnered his sixth No. 1 single two weeks ago with “American Country Love Song” and today he announces the Chris Stapleton, Luke Laird and Shane McAnally penned song “If He Ain’t Gonna Love You” will be the second single from his album American Love.
“I actually recorded ‘If He Ain’t Gonna Love You’ two years ago,” says Owen. “I loved the song from the first time I heard it. Chris Stapleton, Luke Laird and my producer Shane McAnally wrote it. Man, I’m so lucky that Stapleton sang background vocals on the track during that time because we recorded it before his album, Traveller, was released and his life changed forever. It’s a song that’s got a lot of funk to it, a lot of R&B flair and I’m really proud to have this song on AMERICAN LOVE. When my album came out, so many people told me that ‘If He Ain’t Gonna Love You’ was their favorite song and I’m really happy to share with everyone that it’s going to be the second single.”
Owen will perform “If He Ain’t Gonna Love You” on CBS’s The Talk on today, September 20th, which airs at 2:00 p.m. ET. On Wednesday, September 21st, he will perform his No. 1 hit “American Country Love Song” on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! plus a few more tunes from American Love on their outdoor concert stage in Hollywood, CA. Tune in at 11:35 p.m. ET.
