Actually...less than you might think! Jake Owen's new album Days of Gold was just released this week, but he's not as nervous about it as you might expect.
He says he feels a lot less pressure since his last album Barefoot Blue Jean Nights became such a success.
"I had a lot of pressure... before I ever had hits because you have to have one to maintain a career," he says. "So maybe with the last album, I had some pressure of like 'This is it. I better have a hit.' Now that I've had four in a row, it feels good. Once you get a taste of that No. 1 spot or being on top of a list of other names, you know that you're capable of it, and there's no pressure of wondering if you can ever do it."
