Jake Owenâ€™s hit single â€œI Was Jack (You Were Diane)â€ holds the No. 1 spot this week on Billboard and Country Aircheck/Mediabase country airplay charts. The song is the fastest rising single of Owenâ€™s career and his seventh No. 1 hit. It is his first single release for Big Loud Records and currently has over 25 million streams. Listen to the track HERE.
The nostalgic No. 1 hit, which received John Mellencampâ€™s personal stamp of approval, comes at a time when Owen is reflecting on the journey from his first album release date to today. In his recent Instagram post, Jake said, â€œâ€¦I had no idea what was in store for me, but I was excited to just hop on this train of â€˜lifeâ€™ and see where it led me. Of course, I had dreams, goals, aspirations, but a man can only do so much on his own. Iâ€™ve been fortunate enough to work with some unbelievably talented people that worked tirelessly to help mold and guide my careerâ€¦on this beautiful Sunday morning, I have theÂ #1 song on country radio. Itâ€™s my 7th. Lucky number 7. Thank you @johnmellencampÂ for trusting us and allowing us to pay our respects to you and everything youâ€™ve done to pave the way for so many of us in the music industry. I feel like Iâ€™m just getting startedâ€¦â€ Check out Jakeâ€™s post in its entirety HERE.
