Jake Owen has a powerful voice, and he can pull off a traditional country wail better than most of his fellow newcomers. On his new single, that ability takes a backseat, as he opts for blue-eyed country soul instead.
The result is pleasant to the ears, though a slightly faster pace would make the entire proceedings more interesting. By delivering the chorus with consistent rather than escalating intensity, the record doesn’t build to a satisfying conclusion. Once you’ve heard the first verse and chorus, you’ve heard it all.
Listen: Don’t Think I Can’t Love You
quite a good song, but a chart-buster it ain’t. hello, label-folks, isn’t there really any better way to shift his career into higher gear?
I think this song will shift his career into high gear..The vocals are amazing, and I like the simplicity of the lyrics
GREAT SONG…GREAT VOCALS….Jake gets better and better
The song is both classic country and soulful! Jake’s voice is rich and solid. I am now a fan! He is indeed a class act!
I love this song so much. it remains me of me and my first true love
