Jake Owen is in surgery on his injured hand, a result of his go-kart accident over the holiday weekend.
He checked in on Twitter to say that he was trying to avoid going under the knife, but decided to get it done since his career depends on playing guitar. However, he promised not to miss any of his upcoming shows this weekend...including opening for Jason Aldean at Boston's famed Fenway Park.
Pain level = through the roof right now. Thanks for all y'all's well wishes. I love ya....— Jake Owen (@jakeowen) July 9, 2013
Headed in for surgery... I was trying to avoid it, but since I play guitar for a living I need to get this done. 👍 pic.twitter.com/2QgTL1m6cq— Jake Owen (@jakeowen) July 9, 2013
Btw..There's no way I'd miss the chance to play @countryconcert or Fenway Park this weekend. I won't let y'all down.— Jake Owen (@jakeowen) July 9, 2013
