How Jake Owen & Merle Haggard Influenced Mike Posner’s “I Took A Pill In Ibiza”

Jake Owen is getting the credit for Mike Posner’s new smash single.

After meeting up in Los Angeles, Jake advised Mike to simply “tell the truth” and he turned him on to artists like Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson and Hank Williams. Those country music legends heavily inspired the songwriting on Posner’s new album entitled, At Night, Alone. The next day, Mike wrote “I Took A Pill In Ibiza” during a flight to Russia.

Pretty cool eh?
