There’s no doubt about it: Jake Owen‘s career is on fire these days. In the past month, you’ve seen him on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and Chelsea Lately…he’s hitting the road this summer as part of the Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw “Brothers of the Sun” Tour…and he’s rockin’ the charts in a big, big way with “Alone with You” — the follow-up to his number-one smash, “Barefoot Blue Jean Night.” But whatever else may be happening, Jake hasn’t lost his easygoing, down-to-earth manner, and he credits his fans with helping him keep things in perspective.
Of staying grounded, Jake says “I really like it when people come up and say, ‘Jake, I love the way that you’re not forgettin’ where you came from and stayin’ really true and nice and real to people.’ And I’m glad people tell me that because I just…it’s nice to be reminded because in a world where I think you…everyone can become caught up in themselves and things sometimes, I just want to always be reminded and brought back down to where it all came from. The only reason I’m here is ’cause people have given me the opportunity to do this.”
Jake’s “Alone with You” has just been RIAA-certified as a Gold Digital Single! The song is the second blockbuster from Jake’s Barefoot Blue Jean Night album! After hitting Platinum with the million-selling success of his chart-topping “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” single, Jake remarked on his “Alone with You” Gold certification, sharing, “I’ve been out on the road touring non-stop for the past six years. And my main goal has always been to try to connect with people. Now, it is just such a great feeling to know that ‘Alone with You’ and ‘Barefoot Blue Jean Night’ are songs that people are connecting to. In this day and time, I never take anything for granted. To have a gold single AND a platinum single from my album means the world to me and I’m so grateful.”
