Suggested (m)use: Jake Owen

by Craig B | Sep 14, 2016

cover for Jake Owen's album, American LoveThe newest offering from Jake Owen, American Love, has a lot to do with drinking for ostensibly being about “love.”  Other than that slightly snarky observance I would say that the album innovates pretty comfortably within its own wheelhouse and brings some strong wit to familiar lyrical territory.  Admirable, really.

Suggested Use: Do your own mechanical work?  Nothing like finishing up a brake job or an oil change to the strains of Jake Owen.  Turns out muttering to yourself and casting around for the half-inch drive ratchet becomes a lot more interesting when the music you’re listening to reminds you of the Friday night football game and a weekend spent driving around in your VW van.
