It’s kind of hard to separate an artist from their songs. I actually picture GARTH BROOKS in a honky-tonk hanging with his “Friends In Low Places”. I see WILLIE NELSON on stage every time I hear “On The Road Again”.
So, someone asked JAKE OWEN about the marijuana reference in his song “LAX“. Kind of a passive-aggressive way of asking if he partakes, don’t you think? He started out by sounding like a school principal, and then he basically said yes.
Quote, “I’m not gonna condone the use of any illegal drugs, but I think it’s okay to reference things that are true to whoever that artist is that’s singing. That’s what music is . . . say what’s the truth. Say what’s on your heart.”
