Jake Owen’s highly anticipated 3rd studio album, Barefoot Blue Jean Night, hit the shelves on Monday August 29 and skyrocketed to the top of the iTunes Country Charts far before days end. His album titled hit single “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” has served as a summer anthem and became gold certified weeks prior to the album release.
Owen’s new album Barefoot Blue Jean Night showcases the growth of Jake as an artist. His rich, unmistakeable voice is flawless on all 11 tracks. “Anywhere With You” kicks things off as he sings about going anywhere as long as it is with his girl, whether it be California, Mexico, Idaho, etc…. it doesn’t matter, just as long as he is with her. “Keepin’ It Country” is just what Jake does on this album from start to finish. With solid lyrics such as, Doesn’t matter where you are, its the same old stripes, the same old stars…. looking around its good to see everybody out there keepin it country. The track is definitely made for country radio and we sure hope to hear it on country radio airwaves in the near future. “Heaven” is the first ballad on this album that includes a fantastic musical arrangement. Jake sings of this perfect quiet place, only its not the “heaven” that your thinking of. Instead its 10 miles down highway 11, 10 more minutes up the old dirt road. “Alone With You” is another solid track that displays Owen’s vulnerable side as he sings about a girl that he can’t be alone with, the temptation is too strong and he will only end up getting hurt. The Lyrics, the Music and Jake’s Voice make this a standout track on the album. “The Journey Of Your Life” is a compelling ballad as Jake sings about a grandfathers advice. There are several lines of wisdom that is included in this song such as “You need to lose some to be a winner, have courage to surrender” as well as “Laugh a lot and keep it light on the journey of your life.“
The album is not only full of 11 excellent songs from start to finish, but the solid delivery from Jake Owen brings the album full circle. There are several songs that are more than capable of following in the footsteps of hit single “Barefoot Blue Jean Night”. Jake is setting Country Music on fire with this album!
