JAKE OWEN DROPS SUN-SOAKED ANTHEM “DRUNK ON A BOAT”
BREEZY COUNTRY ROCKER WITH A CHOOSE-HAPPINESS THEME OUT NOW (10/8)
CURRENT SINGLE “BEST THING SINCE BACKROADS” NEARING TOP 20 AT COUNTRY RADIO
NASHVILLE, TENN. (October 8, 2021) - Big Loud Records’ MULTI-PLATINUM entertainer Jake Owen drops anchor on a good time with his new track “Drunk On A Boat,” letting worries float away today (10/8).
Out now as a choose-happiness themed anthem, it’s all about riding the waves of a carefree day on the water – instead of a dull day back on land. Featuring a breezy melody and a weekend-anytime singalong, it’s the perfect vessel for Owen’s easy-going Country style.
"When I heard this song for the first time, I knew it was right on-brand for me,” says Owen. “I wanted to release ’Drunk On A Boat’ as the sun sets on the season and give everyone a feel-good summer memory as we head into fall.”
“Drunk On A Boat” was written by Rodney Clawson, Jake Mitchell and David Lee Murphy, and produced by Joey Moi.
The new track follows last month’s release of Owen’s current single, “Best Thing Since Backroads,” which is nearing Top 20 at Country radio after becoming the #1 most-added week upon its arrival.
Both of the new songs mark a new chapter from the Florida-born hit-maker, after 2019’s extremely successful GREETINGS FROM…JAKE album. That project featured three chart-toppers (“I Was Jack (You Were Diane),” “Homemade,”“Made for You”) and a PLATINUM-certified smash (“Down to the Honkytonk”) – and just crossed ONE BILLION on-demand streams in August.
On October 9, Owen will headline The Flamingo Jam in his hometown of Vero Beach, Florida, with proceeds benefiting The Jake Owen Foundation and its mission to support children battling cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases. And he’ll finish out the month with an October 30 appearance at the star-studded iHeartCountry Festival in Austin, Texas.
