Starting Saturday, Jake Owen embarks on a thousand-mile trek from Music City to Key West, Florida, in his recently-purchased 1966 Volkswagen he’s named the Love Bus — all to promote his new single, “American Country Love Song.”
“I have always wanted to do this,” he admits. “Let’s load up in this thing and take a road trip and see where it takes us and document the things that happen along the way. It goes right in line with the song.”
As Jake’s journey progresses, he’ll be inviting fans to meet up with him along the way via social media. You can follow @jakeslovebus on Instagram and Twitter to see if he’ll be in your neck of the woods.
“The purpose is to see firsthand that the lyrics of the single are real, whether you live in a big city or a small town. I want to be able to show that what I am singing about in this song is exactly what is happening on a day-to-day basis in America,” he asserts.
The “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” crooner says both the lead single and his road trip are a foretaste of his coming album.
“My goal at this point in my life is to promote positivity and love. When I stop in a town and visit with people, they will realize that I am not just talking the talk, but I am walking the walk. We all need more positivity in our lives. I’m ready to bring it,” he says.
