Album Review

A Nashville country rebel in the mold of Travis Tritt — in other words, a defanged and marketing-driven pretty boy whose punkin head David Allan Coe or Waylon Jennings would smash a beer bottle over just on general principle — Jake Owen makes his debut with the utterly formulaic Startin' with Me. Opening tracks "Bad in Me" and "Yee Haw" try so desperately hard to establish Owen's image as a bad-ass hellraiser that they finally become comical, and not the knowingly self-mocking Big & Rich kind of comical, either. Every note on Startin' with Me is as perfectly placed as Owen's artfully mussed hair in the reg'lar joe glamour shot on the front cover. Owen and producer Jimmy Ritchey carefully check off all the country radio clichés: Drinking ballad? Check! Cry for the good Lord's deliverance? You betcha! Leering misogyny disguised as praise for the female of the species? Got yer "Something About a Woman" right here, pal! Naturally, something so perfectly contrived can't help but be at least modestly successful on a commercial level.

What's up with that review? Nice call pal. I bet at some point the reviewer was Jake's best friend...and he slept with his baby sister.


The Critic at the top of this page needs to step off their tarnished soap box, and step into the real world. Mr. Owen's music is just as much "real country" as any I have heard.

who bumped their head and wrote the review?

Regardless of whether or not you're a Jake Owen fan, the lack of professionalism exhibited in the review is a smack in the face to the artist and should not have been done on the behalf of a large corporation (iTunes). It degraded the creditability of the program, and the employee that wrote it should either be fired or fed to the fans. Sorry for the rant, great album!

When plans for a professional golfing career were derailed by an injury, country songwriter Jake Owen picked up a guitar and never looked back. A native of Vero Beach, Florida, Owen and his fraternal twin, Jarrod, grew up in the Florida sun playing sports like baseball and football before Jake turned to golf and Jarrod to tennis. They continued their respective sports together as students at Florida State University, until a water skiing accident resulted in reconstructive surgery for Jake. Off the...
