When Michael Ray and Carly Pearce got married on Oct. 6, 2019, they persuaded Jake Owen to be their wedding singer.

Jake sang Made for You for the couple’s first dance. The song was not a single at the time, but he recognized the moment as more confirmation of something he already felt: Made for You was special.

“They’re both artists. They could choose any song. He could have sang his song to his wife. But for some reason, Michael heard me play that at a songwriter’s round and he related to it so much. He said, We’ve been trying to find a song for our wedding. Will you please do this for us? And he’s one of many people that have asked for this song.”

Jake’s tune will live on in country music history as a #1, unfortunately, the marriage between Michael and Carly won’t.

Carly filed for divorce after eight months of marriage.

“Rounding out this album with a third #1 is something I am so proud of. I chose Big Loud Records as my partner because I know what they are capable of. I knew they could take me and my music to another level. Working with the team and Joey Moi is a huge advantage. I am also so proud of the songwriters on this song. Neil Medley, Joey Hyde and Benjy Davis it’s their first #1 song as writers. These moments are so special and I’m fortunate to be a small part of it. Finally, I’m thankful for country radio for supporting this song, and my career for all these years. We have great champions out there at radio and this is a testament to that. I love country music. I’m living a dream.”

The music video stars Jake’s fiancée, Erica Hartlein, and their 2-year-old daughter, Paris, as well as Owen’s 8-year-old daughter, Pearl, from his previous marriage. The video also features fan-submitted clips celebrating loved ones.

“I was looking for love of all different types and representations. There were so many submissions, so it was hard to choose.”
