​Country singer Jake Owen divorced his wife last year so it’s no surprise songs exploring the ups and downs of romantic relationships dominate his upcoming album, “American Love.”

Despite his recent heartbreak, Owen — performing at Fraze Pavilion in Kettering on Friday, June 24 — has crafted a batch of songs that balances heartache with flirtatious fun and moments of outright optimism.

This ability to look at the sunnier side of life shouldn’t surprise fans of Owen’s earlier hits like “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” and “Beachin’.”

“Going through the divorce last year was really hard on me so obviously not every song is a happy-go-lucky love song,” Owen said recently. “There are serious ones like, ‘When You Love Someone,’ about a relationship that didn’t pan out like it should. A lot of people will relate to that if they’ve had someone that wasn’t faithful.

“There are the ones that have the feeling of longing for love, but it’s important to have fun ones like ‘VW Van’ and ‘Good Company’ too,” Owen continued. “My whole persona and what I like to do on a daily basis is make people feel good, to make them smile and laugh, and to tell the truth in my music.”

The music on “American Love” is extremely diverse. “VW Van” is a banjo-driven road song and “Good Company” is a party anthem about texting a woman an invitation to a cookout with friends, while “If He Ain’t Gonna Love You” is a steamy blues rocker and “When You Love Someone” is a fragile piano ballad. “After Midnight,” a tale about two small-town lovers sneaking out for a late night liaison, has subtle ’80s pop undertones complete with bass guitar arpeggios, airy synthesizer and a rocking guitar solo.

“I love that country music has allowed the genre to take different turns sonically,” Owen said. “For a long time people were like, ‘This isn’t country, that’s not country.’ For me, it’s all about good lyrics, good songs, a good melodic structure and something that makes people feel good. It’s great that people are accepting change in this format and where it’s going.”

Despite the musical diversity, “American Love” remains cohesive through Owen’s expressive voice and the album’s penchant for catchy, imagery-filled story songs.

“This is by far my favorite record I’ve made,” Owen said. “It’s the first one I’ve made where I’m really comfortable with myself, who I am and what I want to say, as opposed to just making a record full of songs. I’m very proud of it.”

Woman stalked by wolf for 12 hours, saved by bear

A woman wasn’t sure if she would make it out of the woods after a wolf stalked her for 12 hours. Luckily, a mother bear was nearby and the woman used that to her advantage.

Joanna Barnaby was with her friend, Tammy Caudron, and her dog, Joey, near Fort Smith in the Northwest Territories of Canada last week when the two women became separated while picking mushrooms, CBC reported. As she returned to her truck, she heard a growl and turned around to see a wolf standing near her.

"I heard this growl behind me. There was a long, tall, very, very skinny wolf. A black wolf. And his legs were spread and his hair was standing, and he was growling and baring his teeth,” she told CBC.

Barnaby said the dog, Joey, attempted to charge the animal, but it didn’t work. She told CBC that the wolf began to attempt to separate the two and work on just one of them. "I think he was weak. He didn't look healthy. He looked old to me. I don't think he wanted to take us both on,” she said.

The two would be stalked by the wolf for 12 hours until finally around 4:30 a.m. Barnaby said she heard a loud noise and recognized that it was a mother bear and her cub.

"I heard this big crashing behind me and realized that the mama bear had attacked the wolf, or maybe the other way around, I don't know, but they were fighting and I could hear the wolf yelping and I could hear the mama bear growling, and I could hear all this crashing and I just took off," she said.

Barnaby and her friend's dog were able to escape and make it back to the highway, where they were picked up by the authorities.

Here's what the 2016 Rio Olympic medals look like

Less than two months ahead of opening day for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, the gold, silver and bronze medals have been unveiled.

>> Read more trending stories   

"To the victors go these spoils," the official Twitter account for the games captioned images of the front and back of each of the three medals.

The medals for the Olympic and Paralympic Games were revealed Tuesday at an event in Barra Olympic Park.

The new medals were unveiled after days of promoting the new designs on social media. 

"Today marks the start of the final countdown to the first Olympic Games to be staged in South America," International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach said Tuesday.

The reveal, 52 days before the Opening Ceremony, is the closest date to the ceremony that Olympic medals have been unveiled since the Sydney 2000 Olympics, when the medals were revealed one month before the games began.  

According to Rio 2016, the medals "have been made with sustainability at their heart."

The gold medals are free of mercury, and recycled materials comprise 30 percent of the silver and bronze medals. The ribbons for the medals were made from recycled plastic bottles and other materials. The cases that hold the medals were made from wood certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.

In total, 812 gold, 812 silver and 864 bronze medals were crafted.

The front of each medal features the Rio 2016 logo with surrounding laurel leaves. The leaves represent the connection between nature and Olympians. The back of the medals features an image of Nike, the Greek goddess of victory, with the Panathinaiko Stadium and the Acropolis in the background.

Each winning athlete's event is etched on the edge of the medal.

For Paralympians, visually impaired winners can shake their medals to sound off a noise-maker inside the medal. Gold medals make the loudest noise, while silver and bronze make quieter noises. "Rio 2016" is also etched in braille.

All Olympians and Paralympians who perform well enough to make it to the podium will be awarded with other prizes.

Rio officials also unveiled the design of the podiums to be used at the Olympics and Paralympics Tuesday. The podiums were made from wood and other organic materials to celebrate the tropical nature of Brazil. They can be reused as furniture after the Games.

The slogan for the Rio Olympics is centered on the idea of "a new world," in which all people celebrate difference cultures and come together in unity.
