Jake Owen is constantly thinking about his fans when he's choosing songs like his latest hit, "Beachin'." He often tests songs he's thinking about recording on his friends while they're out on his boat.

Jake tells The Huffington Post , "I can usually tell pretty quickly if they're enjoying the song, you know? But a lot of the time my friends are honest and they’re like, 'God, this is so great, you got to get this out there,' or they’re like, 'This song sucks.'"

Jake's friends obviously gave a big thumbs-up to "Beachin'." It's the latest hit from his current album, Days of Gold , in stores and online now.
