Jake Owen is having a really good week. He and wife Lacey welcomed their first child, daughter Olive Pearl, on Thanksgiving and just a few days later, Jake scored his third consecutive No. 1 single with “The One That Got Away. It’s also the first No. 1 Jake has had as a songwriter.
“Didn’t think my world could get any better. Having a child and #1 song in the same week is something I’ll never forget. THANK YOU ALL! Wow,” Jake tweeted after receiving word that his song had topped the charts.
“The One That Got Away” is a true story from Jake’s childhood summers in Florida. Co-written by Jake, Jimmy Ritchey and Dallas Davidson, the song is from Jake’s Barefoot Blue Jean Night album. Jake will perform the song on American Country Awards airing live on FOX on Monday, December 10 at 8p|7c. Jake is also nominated for four of the fan-voted awards.
