RCA Nashville recording artist Jake Owen hit the road last weekend after surgery to fix a broken collarbone forced the singer to cancel some tour dates. He broke his collarbone in a snowboarding accident back in January. His first show back was in front of an almost sold-out crowd in Dallas, Texas and a completely sold-out crowd in Norman, Oklahoma.
“I’m thrilled to be back out on the road,” says Jake. “And to have a sold-out show our first weekend back is such an awesome feeling.”
It hasn’t been an easy few days for Jake, who isn’t used to sitting around for downtime. He’d rather be out doing something on the road, he explains:
“I’m not very good at sitting around the house taking it easy. I had eight screws and a metal plate put in to repair my collarbone, so I’ve had to spend a lot of time at doctor’s appointments and physical therapy sessions over the past few weeks. Getting back out on stage was the best therapy I’ve had.”
Jake will appear on Chelsea Lately on March 1st. The late-night talk show airs on E! at 11 pm EST.
“I can’t wait to meet Chelsea,” says Jake. “She’s fearless.”
