After the Music's Stopped

Album: Days of Gold (2013)
  • This story song is one of four tracks that only appear on the Target Deluxe edition of Days of Gold. The vibe-driven track concerns a man who is losing his woman and wishing he could get her back, with lyrics referencing a number of classic rock and pop songs. "It's pretty far out, dude," Jake Owen commented to Rolling Stone. "It's just something that I would hang my hat on, in my career... I even said when I recorded it, 'This could be my only chance ever in my life to win a Grammy award.' It's just that poignant of a song."
