Jake Owen’s innovative new video for “American Country Love Song” allows fans to hit the beach and enjoy a drink with their favorite country star.
The video is a 360-degree, virtual reality release, and is only the second of it’s kind to be released by a country music artist. Throughout the entire clip, you can tilt, turn and rotate the camera in any direction, which helps you feel like you are standing in the middle of the action.
Earlier this year, Owen took a road trip from Nashville to the Florida Keys in a 1966 seafelt green VW microbus, which you will also see in the video. According to Owen, the video’s sunny beach theme perfectly supports the brand he is attempting to build.
“I’m a kind of carefree guy,” Owen told Mashable. “That’s my persona. I grew up in Florida on the beach my whole life, and I’ve always wanted to be the guy who brings happiness to people and makes people smile.”
“American Country Love Song” comes from Owen’s fifth studio album, American Love. Owen is also promoting the release of his brand new alcohol brand, Beach Whiskey, which can be seen in the video and is perfect for sipping on while laying out on the sand.
