Biography

Jake Owen's Endless Summer EP, on RCA Nashville, keeps the easygoing summer vibes flowing into fall.

"Summertime is something that really opens people's minds," Owen says. "That's what this music is - just a way to keep people rolling all year long."

The four-song collection follows his stadium shows on the Brothers of the Sun Tour with Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw, as well as back-to-back No. 1 singles at country radio. In addition, "Barefoot Blue Jean Night" has reached platinum status while "Alone With You" is certified gold. Both tracks come from Owen's 2011 No. 1 album, Barefoot Blue Jean Night.

Already, Owen has received positive feedback from his followers on Twitter for the EP's flirtatious lead track, "Summer Jam." In addition, the new project offers the first cover song Owen has recorded - Ben Harper's sensuous "Steal My Kisses."

"To be flat out honest with you, the EP is all about a good time, and I think that relates to summer," Owen says. "For kids who are getting out of school, or for anybody, summertime is a feeling. When people say, 'I can't wait for summer to get here,' it's because they can't wait for the sun to come back out. They can't wait for their skin to get a little tan on it. This music keeps that feeling going all year long."
Owen's latest music video, "The One That Got Away," was filmed in his hometown of Vero Beach, Fla. In addition, he will headline CMT on Tour this fall with special guests Love and Theft and Florida Georgia Line. The tour begins Oct. 10 in New York City with dates scheduled through December.

Meanwhile, Owen and his wife Lacey are expecting their first child this fall.

Here are Owen's thoughts on the four tracks on the Endless Summer EP:
"Summer Jam"

It has the same feeling as "Barefoot Blue Jean Night." It's got a big chorus. I think this song in particular puts you in that summer mood. The first time I heard it, I loved it. I got my buddies in Florida Georgia Line, who were a part of writing that song, to sing on it. They're going on the CMT on Tour with me. I'm looking forward to having that as a moment on the tour, because by that point, people will know that song. It will be a big point in the show where I can bring them all back out, like Kenny Chesney does for me. He takes the spotlight off him at a time when the crowd is as absolutely as packed as it can possibly get and puts it on me. I like to share the glory as well and put the spotlight on those guys.
"Pass the Beer"

The vibe in the studio is pretty much what you hear on that record. My friends had all gotten together and carried on and recorded us drinking some beers, then took that and overlaid it over the actual tune. I got to play some guitar on it.
"Steal My Kisses"

Just because it's a summer album, every song doesn't have to talk about summer. Just the sound of that song and the breeziness of it reminds me of summer. It's a three-chord song and we just did the little beatbox thing behind it. I've never recorded a cover song before. But I wanted to do something outside of the box a little bit.
"Surefire Feeling"

When I first heard that song, before the words even started, I pictured this Firebird or Camaro flying down some county back road with the girl by your side, and the T-top and the breeze in your hair. I thought it was like Bryan Adams' Reckless record, and the sound of his guitar, and how that record made me feel. And I really dig a lot of the melodic structure and the verses in that song and I thought it would be cool to have it.
