JAKE OWEN’S “BAREFOOT BLUE JEAN NIGHT” MAKES IMPRESSIVE DEBUT
ON DIGITAL SINGLE SALES CHART AND COUNTRY RADIO CHARTS

NASHVILLE, TN – RCA Nashville hit maker Jake Owen captures his way of life as a Florida native and the spirit of summer with his new single, “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” and the immediate reaction to the song suggests he’s right on track. As of its official airplay impact date on Monday, “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” was grooving the playlists of 65 chart-reporting country stations, breaking into Billboard Hot Country Songs Top 40 this week at #36.  Released as a digital single on April 12, fan excitement has propelled “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” onto Billboard’s Country Digital Songs chart with first-week sales of over 20,000 downloads according to Nielsen SoundScan.

“When we recorded ‘Barefoot Blue Jean Night,’ I was really looking forward to summertime,” says Jake. “This song has that nostalgic feeling of growing up, running around barefoot and feeling free. It doesn’t matter whether you grew up along the coast, on the lake or in the country, most everyone remembers that feeling. Hopefully, ‘Barefoot Blue Jean Night’ will bring a little bit of summer into people’s lives.”
Critics are already praising Jake and “Barefoot Blue Jean Night”:
Music Row Magazine’s Robert K. Oermann proclaims, “I have always liked this guy. This time out, he deploys a male cheering section, finger snaps, crashing percussion, rippling banjo and a restlessly jangling guitar to shout out a summer party anthem. Irresistible.”
Jim Asker with All Access says: “‘Barefoot Blue Jean Night’ is this talented artist's best song so far. In fact, it will be one of the best songs this year–a big up-tempo sing-along anthem from Jake that we're no doubt going to hear blasting from backyard BBQ's all summer long.”

Jake will also be bringing a big blast of new music into people’s lives all summer long, as he joins superstar Keith Urban as a special guest on the U.S. leg of Urban’s “Get Closer 2011 World Tour,” beginning June 16.
“We are so lucky to be going out on the Keith Urban tour,” says Jake. “I am excited for the fans to hear some new songs from the new record. And while we are out on tour, I really want to celebrate summertime so I’m going to try to pull my boat behind my bus. I have a Malibu, which is a great wakeboarding boat, and I really want to spend my days out in the sun, meeting people and hanging out.”
“Barefoot Blue Jean Night” is the first single from Jake’s forthcoming third album, due in stores late summer, with tracks produced by Joey Moi (Nickelback) and Rodney Clawson (co-writer of such hits as “I Saw God Today,” “Lost in This Moment”), as well as  GRAMMY® award-winning producer Tony Brown.

But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today.
