It’s no secret that Jake Owen loves to be on the water. It’s also no secret that he loves hanging out with his daughter Olive Pearl  — so it’s no surprise that she picked out the colors of her dad’s newest boat.

Well, almost.

“She wanted pink and blue, although I thought pink and blue might not be the greatest combination,” Owen told PEOPLE at CMA Fest, where he opened the show by coming up to the stage on a boat, in June.

“We stuck with the pink and went pink and silver sparkle flakes.”

The “American Country Love Song” singer has been shaking things up this year. He hopped in a 1966 seafoam green Volkswagen Microbus, affectionately called “Jake’s Love Bus,” and drove from Nashville to Key West while filming the music video for his latest single from his upcoming album American Love, out July 29.

Owen, 34, plans to spend the summer continuing his adventures alongside his 3½-year-old daughter.

“She’s at the age where she’s learning to swim and we’re working on whether or not she feels comfortable getting up on a tube,” he shares.

Their adventures together are well documented on Owen’s Instagram account — fishing on Father’s Day and hitting the golf course together, Pearl with her own appropriately-sized clubs.

The two are a match made in heaven. “Pearl loves the water as well, so we’re gonna go wherever that takes us,” he says.
