Big Loud Records’ MULTI-PLATINUM Country star Jake Owen captures the carefree essence of “Drunk On A Boat” (listen here) with a new music video, hitting the water for his Caribbean clip today (11/4).
Directed by Matt Paskert, the easy-going video gives fans an invite to Owen (and his twin brother’s) birthday celebration in Green Turtle Cay, one of the barrier islands off mainland Great Abaco in The Bahamas. Filled with family, friends and sun-drenched fun, it finds Owen and his guests enjoying turquoise waves and white sand in a true paradise on earth – plus wild beach pigs and a special, fresh caught meal – giving a real-life example of the song’s choose-happiness theme.
“Filming this music video in The Bahamas with my family felt like second-nature to me,” says Owen. “There were so many good laughs and memories captured on film. I’m so happy that we are releasing this video so we can always go back and relive sweet memories of precious moments.”
All about letting worries wash away on the water, “Drunk On A Boat” was written by Rodney Clawson, Jake Mitchell and David Lee Murphy, and produced by Joey Moi. Meanwhile, Owen’s fast-rising single “Best Thing Since Backroads” is on the verge of Top 20 after becoming the #1 most-added song at Country radio week of release.
Both new songs follow the Florida-born hitmaker’s 2019 GREETINGS FROM…JAKE album, which delivered three chart-toppers – “I Was Jack (You Were Diane),” “Homemade,” “Made for You” – PLATINUM smash “Down to the Honkytonk,” and won the praise of critics from Billboard, People, Rolling Stone, Tennessean and more.
Continuing his reign as one of Country’s premiere stars, Owen crossed ONE BILLION on-demand streams in August and will hit the road on November 12 to perform at Houston’s Minute Maid Park as part of Houston Open Concert Series. See the list of all of Owen’s tour dates here.
