Watch Jake Owen’s Intimate Acoustic Performance of ‘In It’
"If my '98 Pontiac gets to drivin' through your dreams / Gets you flyin' 'round this old town in that same ol' shotgun seat / When you open your eyes and that pretty little mind has a memory in it / I hope there's still a little me in it," Owen sings in the chorus.
The deep ballad was written by songwriters Jimmy Robbins, Josh Thompson and Laura Veltz. Owen explains that the song was an extremely late addition to his album. The song was emailed to him and he had to have it. "It’s hard to pick favorites, but this song really means a lot to me," Owen tells Billboard.
Greetings From... Jake brings producer Joey Moi back on board for another Owen album. The album features 14 new tracks, including Owen’s seventh No. 1 hit, "I Was Jack (You Were Diane)," and his current single, "Down to the Honkytonk."
The album also features one-of-a-kind collaborations with Kid Rock on “Grass Is Always Greener” and YouTube sensation Lele Pons on "Senorita." Owen has also announced an upcoming collaboration with controversial country rap artist Lil Nas X, whose viral hit "Old Town Road" has taken the country world by storm after some initial controversy.
Owen is taking some time off from touring constantly and instead, becoming a dad again. His and his girlfriend, Erica Hartlein, are expecting a daughter in May. They've already announced they are naming her Paris. Owen also has a 6-year-old daughter named Olive Pearl from his marriage to Lacey Buchanan, which ended in divorce in 2015.
