Jake Owen turned to the people he loves most to star in his new "Made For You" music video. The clip features Owen's girlfriend, Erica Hartlein along with his two daughters Pearl and Paris. Footage sent in from fans is also incorporated throughout the video.
"This is a song about love," a message on the screen says at the beginning of the video. "Love for people and moments in our lives. You all shared examples of those moments in your life and some of them are in this video..."
The video goes on to show with Owen, Hartlein and the girls spending time with each other at home and at the lake. It includes footage of the kids running around playing, wakeboarding and more. The clips of Owen's family are interspersed with fan footage of parents and their kids, couples and more.
"I was looking for love of all different types and representations," Owen told People of the video. "There were so many submissions [so it was] hard to choose."
"As a performer, just getting to perform my songs to a live audience every night on the road, you really see how every song starts out with a story from how it's written at first, but it evolves ... and becomes a different story with a different meaning to each of those people in the audience listening to it/singing it back to you," he continues. "It means something different to each person but still resonates with them in some way, and we wanted to represent that. We wanted to feel like people saw themselves in the story, because when they adopt it to their own narrative, it becomes part of their story in their lives too."
Near the end of the video, Owen and Hartlein are seen slow dancing in an empty bar, Nashville's historic Tootsie's. Along with dancing, Owen says that he and his girlfriend have been taking "lots of walks" during quarantine.
"We walk the property with the girls and pick up a lot of arrowheads, which are all along the land from years ago," he said. "It's our daily thing, and it's amazing to be outside and disconnect like that on a daily basis."
