Jake Owen Performs With Broken Hand

Jake Owen Performs With Broken Hand
Posted July 15th, 2013 @ 12:37pm

Last Sunday, Jake Owen broke his hand in a go-karting accident.  He had surgery on his hand to repair the damage.

To make matters more difficult, Owen was scheduled to perform over the weekend.  That included a pair of very high profile gigs with Jason Aldean at Boston's Fenway Park.

But, even with a cast on his right hand, Owen played through the pain.  With help from NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick, who was with Jake when he broke his hand, Owen was able to make it to his shows.  Harvick flew Jake to his shows on a plane.

The concerts in Boston set attendance records.  Over 70,000 tickets were sold for the two shows.
