It's hard to believe, but in spite of his sex appeal and successful career, Jake Owen is still single. Owen graces the cover of February's Nashville Lifestyles magazine, in the annual issue listing Music City's most eligible bachelors and bachelorettes.

A true romantic at heart, Owen names 'She Believes in Me' by Kenny Rogers as the most romantic song and 'The Thornbirds' as the most romantic book. He describes his ideal woman as "kind, understanding, fun" and reveals what would make the first date the last: "If she couldn't hold a genuine conversation with me."

In spite of all his efforts, the 27-year-old Owen admits he may not have always gotten it right when it comes to dating. "I went to a baseball game with a girl once, and she didn't know anything about baseball," he tells the magazine, recalling the worst date he's ever been on. "She continuously asked me questions throughout the game, and I couldn't enjoy it at all. Not her fault -- I should've asked if she wanted to go to the baseball game in the first place."

His ideal date doesn't have to include one of his favorite activities, such as baseball or canoeing. For Owen, it's the company -- not the activity -- that means the most. "Having a great conversation with someone who you care about. We can be doing anything and be anywhere."
