Jake Owen

Days of Gold"

Producer: Joey Moi

Label: RCA Nashville

Release Date: Dec. 3

After three straight top 10 albums and a view from atop the country charts, Owen can see “plenty of good times for miles,” as he sings on his fourth album’s title track. He and producer Joey Moi do a solid job of mixing up the moods, partying down on “Beachin’” and “Tipsy,” then grappling melodically with heartbreak on “Ghost Town” and “Life of the Party.” —Gary Graff
