Before I get to the gruesome news about Jake Owen's amputation, first the HAPPY NEWS!
Jake celebrated his FOURTH number 1 song last night at a FREE BLOCK PARTY that he threw in Nashville. From the looks of it, a few people heard and made it to Music Row!! Check out his tweet-
Jake along with Dierks Bentley, Florida-Georgia Line and Thomas Rhett in a FREE SHOW last night. No Wonder! Ok, the Story about Jake Owen's amputation- but first -Looks like there was a BRO-MANCE going on too! LOL!
Now the Story about the Amputation!
Painful news from our buddy Jake Owen!
After suffering severe injuries from a go-kart accident, doctors couldn't do anything more to save his damaged finger.
Last night, on stage in Nashville, Jake told the audience that just earlier yesterday his finger was amputated!!
"Not to be too graphic, but this morning at 10:30 they just went ahead and amputated the last half of it off, so yeah, today they cut from the joint -- that whole joint -- they took it off, so I kind of try to pretend like it doesn't hurt right now but it's a little sensitive. Sensitive's a good word, but . . . Cause I was like, 'Man, you don't realize, but can we just wait and do this tomorrow because I have this show tonight that's a really big deal out of all shows' . . . I will say that. Like this is by far probably the most excited I've been for any show in a long time, but it's funny how things like this work out."
How's that for Country Music commitment? Surgery in the morning and a party at night! The show must go on!
