The second single from Jake Owen
's fourth album celebrates quintessential ideas of love. The singer explained:
"'American Country Love Song' has the feeling of freedom and being young and adventurous. The first few lines of the song give examples of what love is: 'It's two tickets to a concert, it's a Daytona airbrush T-shirt, wonderin' who's gonna kiss who first. You know what I'm talking about.' I would say the majority of America does know what I'm talking about.
The single is a broad-spectrum glance in a three-minute song that describes a couple of kids living that American country love song. But, it's also a much larger celebration of the love story that is America itself, from cowboys and cowgirls to cheerleaders and quarterbacks in small towns and big cities. It's the thought of, 'Hey, let's raise our glasses to the fact that we are all one [and] the same. Wherever you live in this country, we are basically living one big American country love song."
