music artist Jake Owen . It is the first single from his upcoming
fifth studio album for RCA Nashville .
The song is a list that "celebrates quintessential ideas of love". In
the verses, Owen "speak-sings" in a manner that The Boot
compared to Shawn Mullins ' " Lullaby",  while the "anthemic
chorus" features steel guitar and a "drum-heavy arrangement". 
Owen told Nash Country Weekly magazine that "“I think my fans
have come to expect a certain kind of music from me; songs that
are fun, energetic and just make you feel good. ‘American
Country Love Song’ has the feeling of freedom and being young

American country love song...[b]ut, it’s also a much larger
celebration of the love story that is America itself, from cowboys
and cowgirls to cheerleaders and quarterbacks in small towns
and big cities."

that Owen's "storytelling has become more nuanced" while
praising the production and lyrics.
