"Most of the songs I recorded are songs I found from outside. I'm not at the point where I care anymore if I wrote 'em or not. It's really about the song, not who writes it"
With a fourth single, "Anywhere With You," currently climbing the country charts from his chart-topping third album "Barefoot Blue Jean Night," Jake Owen is eyeing a December release for his next album.
"I'm in the middle of almost wrapping it up, actually," Owen tells Billboard. "I've recorded about eight or 12 songs that are great. It's just feel-good, kind of the same thing I do, man. Just good-time, good-feeling songs. That's the best way to put it."
Owen hopes to have the set's first single out in July, and he's already started previewing some of the new tunes live, including "Beachin'," which he calls "a 'Barefoot Blue Jean Night' sister song,' and "Days of Gold," which he says is also under consideration for the album's title. And as on "Barefoot Blue Jean Night" he's opened the doors for outside writers' songs.
