Jake Owen’s “Days of Gold” Album Available Now

Jake Owen

One of my favorite artists is back with new music!

That’s right, I’m talking about Jake Owen. The country star has released his highly anticipated 4th album, Days of Gold.

Days of Gold is the follow-up to Owen’s gold-certified Barefoot Blue Jean Night. Barefoot achieved great success scoring four consecutive number one singles with “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” “Alone,” “The One That Got Away,” and “Anywhere With You.”

His current release, “Days of Gold,” is the lead single and title track for the new album. It is #22 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart and climbing! I know I cannot turn on my local country station without hearing it, and I think it’s on the same track for success as its predecessors.

In an interview with Billboard, Owen had this to share about the album:

“I think it’s different. I don’t know if it’s so out there that people would get offended by it. But, we did take a chance. It’s a risk reward thing. I think that as an artist, sometimes for you to grow, you have to take those risks rather than put out the same song each time. You look back on careers of people who had songs that were just a little bit different, and that’s what we did.”

Days of Gold is available everywhere now so grab your copy asap! FYI – there is an exclusive edition of the album, featuring four bonus tracks, that is available only at Target. Makes for a great Christmas gift!

One of our favorite country stars, Jake Owen, has another number one single on his hands! “Anywhere With You” is the fourth consecutive song from his Barefoot Blue Jean Night album to top the charts.

Owen’s fastest rising single to date, the song is number one on both the Mediabase and Billboard country charts. The track is also record breaking. It has garnered the biggest weekly audience sum with 43.8 million impressions since the Billboard Country Airplay Chart switched to audience based rankings in 2005.

“Anywhere With You” has also been certified gold by the RIAA. It follows the success of the double platinum “Barefoot Blue Jean Night”, the platinum “Alone With You”, and the gold “The One That Got Away.”

Jake shared:

“I’m incredibly amazed at what the Barefoot album has done. To have four #1’s in a row … I’m so thankful to country radio and my fans. This wouldn’t have happened without you and I can’t wait to share new music with everyone!”

The Grammy nominated singer has teamed up with producer, Joey Moi, for his upcoming studio album. The lead single is expected to be released this August. We can’t wait!

Congratulations, Jake, on another number 1!

Owen is currently on the road with Jason Aldean for his Night Train Tour.

Video Picks Of The Week: November 25, 2011

Reba McEntire

Hey friends! It’s time for our “Video Picks of the Week!”

If you missed last week’s kick-off post, “Video Picks of the Week” is our new weekly feature where we will choose three videos: an official music video, a live performance video, and a song cover video.

Music Video

This week’s music video is Jake Owen’s number one hit, “Barefoot Blue Jean Night.” The song was the lead-off single to his current album of the same title. His video for his current single, “Alone With You” is set to be released soon.

Live Performance Video

Our live performance video is Reba McEntire singing “She Thinks His Name Was John” at the 1994 Billboard Music Awards. The song was the second single off of her “Read My Mind” album and sparked controversy at the time for its subject matter. “She Thinks His Name Was John” is about a woman who contracts HIV after a one night stand. It is a powerful, heartbreaking song sung by one of the best musical storytellers in the business.

Cover Song

The pick for cover song this week goes to singer-songwriter, Ashley Arrison. This video is Arrison’s beautiful version of Miranda Lambert’s “More Like Her.” If you have not heard the talented Arrison’s music, you must check it out. It is available on Itunes! You can follow her on Twitter: @ashleyarrison, and stop by her Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ashleyarrisonmusic.
