Jake Owen Borrows Kevin Harvick’s Plane, Returns to the Road After Surgery
It’s been a whirlwind week for Jake Owen. On Sunday, the “Anywhere With You” singer got into a go kart accident while racing NASCAR stars Kevin Harvick and Clint Bowyer. He paid a visit to the emergency room after the incident and updated fans with photos straight from the ER. On Tuesday, Owen revealed that he was heading to the hospital for surgery, but promised not to miss any of his upcoming shows.
Owen fulfilled his promise to fans last night when he made his first post-surgery appearance at Country Concert 2013 in Ft. Loramie, Ohio. The singer couldn’t have gotten there without a little help from a friend.
“[Kevin Harvick]” flew me in on his plane and he’s sitting side stage right here,” Owen told the Country Concert crowd as he brought the NASCAR driver on stage. “You guys say thanks to Kevin for getting me here.”
The audience erupted with cheers as Jake reflected on the past week. “I learned one thing,” he told the crowd. “Number one…I will never race guys like that in go karts ever again!”
He laughed adding, “It’s nice to have friends with planes. That’s another good thing.”
Jake, who is currently sporting a camouflage arm sling, also used Harvick’s plane to get to his next gig: The “Night Train” Tour at Fenway Park in Boston.
