Did Taylor Swift Write ‘Sparks Fly’ about Jake Owen?
Jake Owen asserts that he is not “the man” responsible for Taylor Swift’s smash hit “Sparks Fly.”
After the release of “Speak Now (Taylor’s Version),” the country artist acknowledged he is aware Swifties have beliefs regarding him serving as the inspiration for the 2010 song.
At the American Century Championship in Nevada on Wednesday, Owen, 41, said to People, “I think it’s a terrific song, and the rumors have always made me laugh.
“I’m sure Taylor laughs at it all too, but I’m just glad to even have my name brought up in the conversation.”
The “Made for You” singer continued by stating that he has known Swift, 33, when she first entered the music industry at the age of 16.
He declared, “She’s an amazing girl and an amazing artist.” It has been amazing to watch how she has developed as a musician and how huge of a sensation she has become.
Swifties conjectured that “Sparks Fly” was about Owen because she included “Portland, OR” in the song’s liner notes, apparently alluding to their concert there 17 years ago, according to People.
Fans also discovered an old MySpace post from Swift where she talked about introducing Owen at a Portland pub in 2006.
Swift claimed in the tweet that “Anywhere With You” singer informed her he liked her music.
After the liner note for “Speak Now” mentioned where the two performed in Portland, fans assumed the song was about Owen.
It’s possible that the pop artist will never reveal the identity of the man who inspired her songs because she frequently keeps her sources of inspiration a secret.
Swift’s release of the song “When Emma Falls in Love” from her most recent re-recorded album, “Speak Now (Taylor’s Version),” last week drove fans into a frenzy.
Many Swift fans speculated that the song was about Emma Stone’s former romance with Andrew Garfield. After meeting on the set of “The Amazing Spider-Man” in 2012, the couple dated for four years.
