Jake Owen [2] had a little too much fun over the weekend, hanging out with NASCAR drivers Kevin Harvick and Clint Bowyer. A go kart accident put Jake in the hospital and naturally, he tweeted updates while lying on a bed in the ER.

“In the ER… What a way to end the weekend,” he wrote first, tweeting out a photo of him lying in bed wearing a neck brace. Curious fans concerned for his welfare wanted to know what had happened and so he provided another update.

“Got in a little go kart accident tryin to beat @KevinHarvick [3] & @ClintBowyer [4]. I’ll stick to singing country songs,” he tweeted, this time providing a photo of doctors stitching him up.

Despite the doctors and ER visit, Jake couldn’t go without a little ribbing from his pals. Kevin Harvick retweeted the neck brace photo with a message that read “Stick to your day job.”

In the early hours of Tuesday morning, Jake tweeted, “Pain level = through the roof right now. Thanks for all y’all’s well wishes. I love ya.”

A few hours later he posted the photo above, saying, “Headed in for surgery… I was trying to avoid it, but since I play guitar for a living I need to get this done.”

We wish Jake a speedy recovery! He’s currently a special guest on Jason Aldean’s [5] Night Train Tour and is planning to release a new single from his upcoming album soon.
