Jake Owen knows he’s a lucky man to have a successful career, a loving wife and a healthy baby girl, but his latest single, “What We Ain’t Got,” reminds him to stop and appreciate those blessings. That’s not always easy for Jake to do, though.
“I still find that I want more, ’cause I’m competitive,” Jake explains. “Sometimes it just takes takin’ a minute to sit there and realize that what we have right in front of us is just as satisfying as anything that we could ever want — and sometimes it takes a little three-minute song like this one to make you remember that.”
“What We Ain’t Got” is a complete 180 from Jake’s summer anthem, “Beachin’.”
He says, “It’s just myself and a piano and a steel guitar, but it’s the kind of song that, like, will pull your heart strings.”
Jake recently debuted “What We Ain’t Got” with a stripped-down performance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! The song is included on his latest album, Days of Gold.
