In Nashville last night at Jake Owen’s Summer Block Party concert, Jake gave fans an update on the hand he injured in a go-kart accident last month. He’d already undergone one surgery to reconstruct several of his fingers, but needed more and his latest was rather shocking…
"Not to be too graphic, but this morning at 10:30 they just went ahead and amputated the last half of it [Jake’s ring finer], 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 …,” Jake said.
Jake asked his doctors if he could schedule the surgery for today, the day after his big show in Nashville, but that was not to be. Jake said, “it's funny how things like this work out."
