Jake Owen Celebrates 10th Career Chart-Topper With ‘Best Thing Since Backroads’

Jake Owen has racked up his tenth No. 1 with “Best Thing Since Backroads,” which landed in the top spot on the Country Aircheck/Mediabase chart.

The single, written by Ben Johnson, Jordan Minton, Hunter Phelps, and Geoff Warburton,was followed up by recent releases “Fishin’ On A River,” “Up There Down Here,” and the latest “1×1.”

“Let’s go! Boys and girls, the No. 1 song in all the land of country music,” Owen shared on social media. “Thank you so much, holy frickin’ cow. It’s a Monday and having the No. 1 song in America is unbelievable.

“I could not do this first and foremost without the songwriters; you guys wrote an incredible song that’s only elevating my career,” he continued. “I have 10 No. 1 songs–I can’t even wrap my head around that. It took me seven years to get my first No. 1, and to think all these summers later we’re still cranking them out. To the fans– oh my gosh, the fans. You are the best thing since backroads, you have given me this life, I love you guys. You make country music what it is and I’m proud to be a part of it.”
