Jake Owen recorded the Hawaiian Christmas classic “Mele Kalikimaka” for the new A Very Country Christmascompilation, now available only at Target. Since Jake grew up in Florida, he identifies with the kind of tropical holiday described in the song. “We didn’t have snowy white Christmases like you hear about,” Jake explains, adding, “I had palm trees, and it was always 72 or 75 degrees and sunny on Christmas Day.”
Jake also likes the light-hearted vibe of “Mele Kalikimaka.” He says, “You gotta bring some fun into Christmas, as well.” Brad Paisley, Ronnie Dunn and Sara Evans are also included on the new A Very Country Christmas compilation at Target.
