Tell me about this shift in a slightly more bohemian direction.

Over time, it’s about honing in on how you want to represent yourself as an artist.

If the wind picks me up and wants to take me somewhere, I like the ride. Not that I'm by any means doing something that's not real to me.

Alongside pining ballads and pop-philosophizing are sounds that skillfully blend programmed precision with deliberately baggy grooves and a generous helping of bohemian imagery.One moment Owen’s fantasizing about picking up a date in a Camaro, and four tracks later he’s inviting listeners to imagine a freewheeling ride in a vehicle that rarely ever makes appearances in country songs: a vintage VW van.Some artists are able to do that on the very first record they come out with, but I'm self-aware enough to tell you that it's taken me, like, five records and going from being a 22-year-old kid who got a record deal to taking years to get to number one, and then having four in a row, and then having a couple of songs that didn't do as well, that whole ride.I think it's a lot easier to realize what works for me and what's real to me now.I love the funky feel of these songs, “American Love,” “Good Company” and “VW Van.” I like to play barefoot, but I don't consider myself some hippie or anything like that.
