'Something About a Woman'

From 'Startin' With Me'
 
 

Jake Owen's third single from 'Startin' With Me' was most indicative of what's to come. 'Something About a Woman' isn't his best love song, but it laid the framework for better efforts in the future. A great hook and catchy melody helped the 2007 cut reach the Top 20.

'Don't Think I Can't Love You'

From 'Easy Does It'
 
 

Owen seemed more comfortable on songs from his second album, and the lead single was proof. Everything about this mid-tempo lover was a step above similar efforts on 'Startin' With Me.' That's what an artist hopes to do when he cuts album No. 2. 'Don't Think I Can't Love You' became Owen's first Top 5 hit.

'The One That Got Away'

From 'Barefoot Blue Jean Night'
 
 

Summer love songs are a staple of Owen's catalog, and few are as strong as 'The One That Got Away,' a No. 1 hit from 2012. This song became the fourth Owen single to go gold for 500,000 singles sold. The melody drove a lyric that is familiar and perfectly suited for summer.

'Yee Haw'

From 'Startin' With Me'
 
 

Many of Jake Owen's songs are hot, but 'Yee Haw' was one of the great "turn it up" moments of 2006. This song cooked from start to finish, leaving even the most timid country music fan ready to rumble. No, that's not necessarily a good thing, but that kind of reaction is a sign of a great country song, despite what critics may have said.

'The Journey of Your Life'

From 'Barefoot Blue Jean Night'
 
 

'The Journey of Your Life' is a hidden gem on 'Barefoot Blue Jean Night.' Owen's soft and simple delivery let powerful lyrics do the heavy lifting. It's possible this is the best story from a Jake Owen album. Ronnie Bowman and Troy Jones wrote the track, a sure tearjerker for anyone who has lived and loved.

 
Alone With You
RCA Nashville
5

'Alone With You'

From 'Barefoot Blue Jean Night'
 
 

A steamy music video certainly helped this No. 1 hit go platinum in 2012, but Owen's tormented delivery of this love-for-a-night story makes it amongst his best of all time. Lyrically, it's not as strong as the ones above it on this list, but it's packed full of emotion.

'Eight Second Ride'

From 'Easy Does It'
 
 

While critics were mixed in their reviews of 'Eight Second Ride,' fans are nearly unanimous in loving this song. It's a concert highlight and a great contrast to the more subdued, introspective singles Owen has released. The singer lets his hair down and throws it around on this 2009 single. It's also important for him, because he met his wife during the video shoot.

 
Days of Gold
RCA Nashville

'Days of Gold'

From 'Days of Gold'
 
 

'Days of Gold' is by far Owen's loudest release to date. The song sets a blistering pace early on and leaves one gasping for air by the finish. Lyrically, it's about the golden days of one's youth -- a time when moving fast is the only thing that matters.

'Startin' With Me'

From 'Startin' With Me'
 
 

'Startin' With Me' was an important answer to 'Yee Haw,' Owen's debut single in 2006. Rather than be pigeonholed as the newest party guy in country music, the singer delivered an astonishing personal story of remorse. He co-wrote this Kendall Marvel and Jimmy Ritchey and absolutely owns the 'Startin' With Me' lyrics.

 
Jake Owen 'Barefoot Blue Jean Night'

'Barefoot Blue Jean Night'

From 'Barefoot Blue Jean Night'
 
 

This is Owen's biggest commercial hit. 'Barefoot Blue Jean Night' went double-Platinum for two million singles sold. While the summertime story found its way to the hearts of so many country fans, the song's irresistible hook made it unforgettable. Eric Paslay led the writing team on this 2011 cut.
