Jake Owen’s Hot New Collaboration With Chris Stapleton

The hot new collaboration between Jake Owen and Chris Stapleton called “If He Ain’t Gonna Love You” from Jake’s upcoming new album American Love out July 29th has been a long time coming.

Jake has been a huge fan of Chris for what seems like forever, long before Chris started winning award after award and became a household name. In fact, Jake told Rolling Stone , “I remember years back, calling and asking for Chris Stapleton [demo compilations] just so I could listen to his music,” Owen says, who even sported a Stapleton T-shirt in the video for “American Country Love Song,” the first single from his forthcoming LP American Love. ” He didn’t have a [solo] album out then and I would listen to his songs all the time. For ‘If He Ain’t Gonna Love You,’ he sang on the demo too — and it’s so good, it’s hard to beat that. But he made me sound better.”

They sound fantastic together, but truthfully, Chris could sing with Barney and it’d sound fantastic.
