Get well wishes go out to Jake Owen, who had surgery on his right hand Tuesday. Jake injured his fingers in a go-kart accident over the weekend that landed him in the hospital Sunday night. He tweeted on the way in for surgery, “I was trying to avoid it, but since I play guitar for a living I needed to get this done.”

Though he may have to hang up the guitar while his hand heals, Jake isn’t canceling any tour dates. He’s slated to open for Jason Aldean at Boston’s Fenway Park this Friday and Saturday night.
