Jake Owen has released a brand-new single inspired by the John Mellencamp classic, "Jack & Diane." Based around the 1982 hit's iconic melody, the new song -- "I Was Jack (You Were Diane)" -- pays homage to the classic-rock staple while also reinventing it. For Jake, it was also really important that Mellencamp gave his stamp of approval on this song, and he says the rocker really "digs the track." The original song "Jack & Diane" was about two American kids growing up in the heartland, and Owen says that imagery is exactly what so many country songs are based on.
