Jake Owen Pens Joke Diss Song About 'Bachelorette' Hannah Brown & She Reacts

Jake Owen is reacting to Hannah Brown‘s return to The Bachelor.

The country singer premiered his new song on Thursday night (January 9) on social media, which was inspired by Hannah‘s appearance on the premiere of Peter Weber‘s season of The Bachelor earlier in the week.

Jake and Hannah previously met on The Bachelorette when he performed while she was on a date with Tyler Cameron on her season.

“Monday night, my girlfriend had the damn TV on and all you heard about on the new Bachelor was Alabama Hannah, it was just Alabama Hannah everywhere,” he explained.

Lyrics include: “Alabama Hannah, what do you want? / If it’s love that you need, well then honey, it’s gone / You had your chances, so won’t you leave me alone / Alabama Hannah, won’t you go on back home.”

Hannah saw the video, and in response, she wrote: “Well, this is one way to get a song written about you. This is some catchy shade @jakeowen.”
