This week, Jake Owen holds the number one position on Billboard’s Hot Country songs chart with his single “Alone With You”. With his hit song “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” going number one on the charts just last September, Jake definitely has a lot to be happy about.
When asked to reflect on his current number one, Jake had this to say:
“When we started playing ‘Alone with You’ out on the Keith Urban tour last year, I realized that it was a song people really connected to. At the very end of the song, when I would sing, ‘But you kiss me when you’re drunk,’ people would literally laugh out loud. And I think it’s because they had been there, done that. Guys and girls could relate to it. So, when it came time to choose the follow-up single to ‘Barefoot Blue Jean Night,’ I just trusted my gut instinct and the overwhelming response from the people at our shows. I am so thankful to so many people right now.”
You can watch Jake perform “Alone With You” tonight on the Tonight Show With Jay Leno on NBC at 11:35PM EST.
