With several chart-topping hits such as "Barefoot Blue Jean Night," Jake Owen
is on country music's A-list. But he'd rather not be pigeonholed.
"I think it's crazy the way people try to label our genre," the Florida native tells The Boot. "My Dad always said, 'There's an ass for every seat.' That just means there's something out there for everybody. Not everyone goes into the store and buys vanilla ice cream. Some people like chocolate chip, some people like chocolate mint, some people like Rocky Road. It's still ice cream though. You can find what you want. I think people start labeling what is and what isn't country, or what is and what isn't rock and roll, or why this is a sell-out sort of a town, or whatever. Everybody has their own path."
