Jake Owen was reportedly expected to undergo a surgical procedure yesterday (Tuesday, July 9th) in Nashville. The singer tweeted a picture of himself along with the caption, “Headed in for surgery . . . I was trying to avoid it, but since I play guitar for a living I need to get this done. 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.”
There’s no official word yet, but the surgery likely has to do with the injury he suffered on Sunday (July 7th) while go-kart racing against NASCAR drivers Kevin Harvick and Clint Bowyer.
Country Concert 2013 will take place in Ft. Loramie, Ohio on Thursday (July 11th), followed by two nights at Boston’s Fenway Park on Friday (July 12th) and Saturday (July 13th). Those shows are headlined by Jason Aldean and feature performances by Miranda Lambert and Thomas Rhett.
