Did Taylor Swift Date Jake Owen?
Rumors stared when: The lyrics for ‘Sparks Fly’ lead to a show between Taylor Swift and Jake Owen in Portland, Oregon in 2006. Lyrically, the shoe fits. “‘Cause I see, sparks fly whenever you smile,” she sings before waxing about the mystery man’s hair.
The scoop: Taylor Swift was 16 at the time, so no, they didn’t date. More than likely, she just had a school-girl crush on the now-married ‘Barefoot Blue Jean Night’ singer.
