Jake Owen has opened up about his single "The One That Got Away" and says it was inspired by a real summer fling. Speaking with theboot.com, the Florida-based singer says it wasn't unusual for girls to come and go in his hometown.
"It's a true song for me," he explains. "It's the one on the record that I wrote, just about my hometown and the way that girls and their families would come to town during the summer and then they'd leave three months later, go back up North, start school. They would always leave, and there's this one girl in particular, I just remember I never saw her again."
Jake says that, while it is a personal story, its got a universal element:
"It doesn't matter if it happened on the beach or if it happened in your hometown," he adds, "somebody's got that one person that they kind of look back on and wish . . . wonder what would have been."
