Jake Owen’s upcoming album, “American Love,” features the rocking track “If He Ain’t Gonna Love You,” which was written by Chris Stapleton, and features Chris on guest vocals. Jake is a longtime fan of Chris’ and couldn’t be happier to have him song on the record.
“I remember years back, calling and asking for Chris Stapleton [demo compilations] just so I could listen to his music,” Jake tells “Rolling Stone Country.” “He didn’t have a [solo] album out then and I would listen to his songs all the time.”
Jake adds, “For ‘If He Ain’t Gonna Love You,’ he sang on the demo too — and it’s so good, it’s hard to beat that. But he made me sound better.”
Jake’s “American Love” is set to drop July 29th. Click here to check out a preview of “If He Ain’t Gonna Love You.”
