Jake Owen Covers Cher to Take a Stand

Jake Owen’s at the top of the charts with a lot of gay country fans now that he’s expressed himself as an ally with the LGBT community — a move that doesn’t come without some controversy among the Country music fan base.

Owen decided to work up a Cher cover. “I Googled ‘gayest’ songs of all time, and the boys and I decided to put our country spin on  ‘Believe.’ which you can give a listen to here.

He throws in a lot of banjo and twang into the late nineties pop hit, and I’ve got to admit it kinda works.

There has been backlash on his Instagram over the cover and the what it stands for with the more conservative fans, but Owen is sticking to the message of love, and equality.
