– Jake Owen released "Real Life" as his new single across all iHeartMedia Country stations today.
The power anthem, now available at iTunes, will play at the top of every hour through midnight local time across the country. All iHeartMedia Country station websites are now featuring the new VEVO lyric video.
Written by top shelf writers Ross Copperman, Shane McAnally, Ashley Gorley and Josh Osborne, the song is delivered in a sing-talk style that's a little modern day Roger Miller. The song will be on an album out later this year on RCA Nashville.
"Everybody can put themselves in this song in one way or another," Owen said. "And I've been dealing with a lot of real life circumstances lately: my father's sickness, fatherhood, getting married. These are the things I wanted to sing about, and I know my fans can relate."
"'What We Ain't Got' is about all the things we don't have," Owen said, referring to a previous hit. "'Real Life' is about dealing with what you do."
Owens is playing on Kenny Chesney's 2015 The Big Revival Tour throughout the summer.
