“Made For You” was co-written by Benjy Davis, Joey Hyde and Neil Medley, all of whom earned their first No.1 as songwriters with the powerful ballad. 

“Rounding out this album with a third No.1 is something I am so proud of,” Owen shared with Billboard. “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 BLR team and especially Joey Moi is a huge advantage and I’m very thankful for them.”

Owen continued, “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.”

“Made For You” is the fourth single from Owen’s latest album, Greetings From…Jake. The project also features the chart-topping hits “Homemade” and “I Was Jack (You Were Diane)” plus Top 5 “Down to the Honkytonk.”

Owen brought the song to life with a tender music video that features his now- fiancé, Erica Hartlein, their daughter Paris Hartley, and his daughter from a previous relationship, Olive Pearl.
