In his new video for “American Country Love Song” Jake Owen is a man on a road trip in his featching pearly green 1966 Volkswagon Microbus. Owen wanted the clip to be a departure from the more manicured, studio-centric videos he has done in the past.
“The song is about feeling young and free,” Owen told People. “I’ve done videos before where there’s a bunch of people standing around putting makeup on me, and I don’t think of that as being free. I wanted the all-American road trip.”
He continued: “I thought why don’t I just get in a van with the director and take some good friends and hit the road and see what happens?”
