Ben Goldsmith, Jared Mullins, Drew Parker and Bobby Pinson wrote Homemade, a song that celebrates growing up in small town America.
“There is so much going on in the world right now and I don’t take any of this for granted. Homemade has such a new level of meaning to me. I think we all can relate right now to taking the time to focus on the people and small, daily moments that really matter, the ones that make your home, at the core, the most important thing in life.”
“I know a lot of my team and fans are celebrating this moment from home with me right now, and I’d like to thank Big Loud Records and the rest of the people that work so hard every day to get my music out to the fans. And, thank you to the fans for embracing me the way you have for the past decade.”
The music video for Homemade tells the story of Jake Owens grandparents.
“I’m recreating the beautiful story of my grandparents who have been married for over 70 years. My grandfather saw my grandmother in Mumfordville, KY walking down the street. He took a picture of the house she went into on his old camera and decided to write her letters in the 1940s. They became pen pals, and next thing you know, their grandson is remaking a video of their beautiful love story 70 years later.”
Here is the short film version of Homemade, narrated by Jake’s grandparents, Bryan Yancey Owen and Jean Martin.
“We just need to keep telling the stories of real life everyday love. Which sometimes is less sensational than hearing about the bad stuff.”
“I was so glad we could tell this story of my grandparents not just for me, and my girls, but for others too. A little more positivity in the world, even for those that didn’t have the easiest of circumstances, but made it work for love”

The news about hitting #1 was bitter sweet for Jake after hearing that Kenny Rogers had passed away.
