Barefoot Blue Jean Night is the third studio album by American country music artist Jake Owen. It was released on August 30, 2011 via RCA Records Nashville.[3] The album's first single, "Barefoot Blue Jean Night," is the fastest-rising single of Owen's career,[3] as well as his first Number One hit.

Critical reception[edit]

Giving it two-and-a-half stars out of five, Stephen Thomas Erlewine wrote that Owen "is a likable enough presence but he can’t sell the cold calculations of these transparent good times".[1] Michael Sudhalter of Country Standard Time gave the album a positive review. He thought that the album had "plenty of versatility" and that its title track is "just right for the summer time".[4] Similarly, Bobby Peacock of Roughstock thought that the album's songs had several overlapping themes and that Owen "has truly put out an album that he should be proud of", giving it four-and-a-half stars out of five.[2]
