Jake Owen is a huge fan of Brooks & Dunn, and he got to realize a dream by inviting Ronnie Dunn to join him for his latest single.

Owen has just released a new album titled American Love, and had already released a single titled “American Country Love Song” to radio in advance of the new project. Now he’s re-releasing the song in a new version that features Dunn’s voice alongside his own on the track.

“When I listen to this track, I can’t help but grin from ear to ear,” Owen admits (quote via Sounds Like Nashville). “I was lucky enough to go on tour with Brooks & Dunn early in my career. I would sit out on the lawn of the amphitheaters and listen to their sound check every day. To have Ronnie’s voice on a song with me is a dream come true. I have always been such a fan and when I first heard ‘American Country Love Song,’ it reminded me of the Brooks & Dunn song ‘Only in America.’”

Owen wasn’t sure what response he would get, so he was especially excited when he received word that Dunn had agreed to appear on the song.

“I sent the song to Ronnie and asked him if he would sing on it with me. When I received an email back from him saying that he really liked the song and would send the track back to me with his vocal, I was like a kid on Christmas morning waiting with anticipation,” he says. “And man, did he nail it! I still can’t believe it. I can’t wait to hear what people think about it.”
