We take you behind the scenes and explore the making of one of our favorite tunes with The Song Remembers When…
In March 2020, Jake Owen scored his eighth number one with “Homemade” from his album Greetings from…Jake. It was written by Bobby Pinson, Ben Goldsmith, Drew Parker, and Jared Mullins. It was Jared who brought the song to Jake. The two of them are buddies and Jake asked him to play him his best song, so Jared played him “Homemade.”
Jake said that when he heard the chorus, he immediately thought of his own life and growing up in Florida. The things made by his mother and grandmother were some of his favorite things in life. How he grew up had a big influence on what he loved, and Jake knew that fans would relate because he believes we’re all homemade.
The music video for this one is pretty special, too. Jake gave it a personal touch by featuring the love story of his grandparents.
