I really like to pick out new talent whom I enjoy hearing. This is the case with Jake Owen. When I heard the likes of the title track to the new CD,I had to have it. Jake has a great sound which you would have never known from his first released song off the album which was "Yee Haw" I'm wanting to have a great weekend is the best way to describe the song.
The "Startin' With Me" song is a ballad that talks about different choices he could have made in his life. I really liked it and wanted to see what else Jake would offer on his new album. On his My Space sight he talks with wanting to be a pro golfer until an injury made him change his dream. Country music was a great choice for him.
"Something about a Woman", "Long Night with You" and Hard Not To Love You" are all love songs with different twist. Jake really knows how to tell a love story.
He does a duet with Randy Owen called "You Can Thank Dixie" which is an upbeat solid song.
Watch this youngster for a good future in country music.
