June is LGBT Pride Month and with that, Jake Owen took the opportunity to cover a monster hit from one of the biggest gay icons in all of music.
Jake and the boys broke out the banjo and put one hell of an old time country spin on Cher’s 1998 smash single, “Believe.” Not going to lie, it’s probably my favorite Cher cover of all time.
“I believe love is love. Some of my closest friends and coworkers, are part of the LGBT Community and I couldn’t be more happy for the progress they have made. I’m inspired by people loving people no matter who you are. I BELIEVE the world needs more love. No matter where it comes from.”
“So with that said, I googled “gayest” songs of all time and the boys and I decided to put our country spin on Cher’s “Believe.” Hope you dig. I plan on releasing all of these backstage random songs we’ve created very very soon. Stay tuned friends, and most importantly, love everyone.”
It looks like we’re going to get the full version pretty soon, along with whatever other recordings Jake has hidden up his sleeve.
