Jake Owen’s ‘Alone With You’ Reaches Gold Certification
Congratulations are in order once again for Jake Owen, as his latest single, 'Alone With You,' has reached gold certification for digital downloads exceeding 500,000 copies sold.
In addition to the hot digital sales, the song is also inching closer and closer to the No. 1 position on the country singles chart. This week's chart show the song at No. 2 on Billboard and No. 3 on Mediabase / Country Aircheck.
'Alone With You' is the second release from Owen's 'Barefoot Blue Jean Night' album. The album's title-track spent two weeks at No. 1 late last year, marking the singer's first chart-topping hit. The song has since reached platinum certification. The success of the title track helped the album debut at the top of Billboard's country albums chart last year after first week's sales.
"I’ve been out on the road touring non-stop for the past six years," says Owen. "My main goal has always been to try to connect with people. Now, it is just such a great feeling to know that ‘Alone with You’ and ‘Barefoot Blue Jean Night’ are songs that people are connecting to. In this day and time, I never take anything for granted. To have a gold single and a platinum single from my album means the world to me, and I’m so grateful."
This summer, fans will be able to hear both smash singles -- as well as Owen's other hits like as 'Startin' With Me' and 'Don't Think I Can't Love You' -- when he joins Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney on their co-headlining Brothers of the Sun tour.
"I can’t wait to get out on the road with Kenny and Tim," says Owen. "They are two of the coolest guys in this business. It is going to be an awesome summer!”
