Jake Owen reached a new level of stardom with his last album, Barefoot Blue Jean Night , which produced the hit title cut and another #1 hit, "Alone with You." Now that he's got these new fans' attention, he plans to hold on to it with his next studio album. That may mean expanding his sound even more this time around.

Jake tells Billboard , "People know what I can give them now, and if I give them something a little different, I feel like they'll be cool with that and into it."

Jake isn't putting a rush on making his next album. He says,  "I think taking my time to do that is way more important than just trying to cram a year's worth of thought into a 10-day period and just kicking it out there."

Jake Owen is inside the top 10 with his latest hit, "The One That Got Away," from Barefoot Blue Jean Night .
