Tonight on the big 2014 ACM Awards Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan had a good time talking about what happened in the last year in country music. On this April 6 show, they talked about how Jake Owen now has one less finger. Fans wondered if this was really true and yes it is true.

This did happen to Jake back in August of 2013. Jake did not lose his entire finger, but part of it is totally gone now. It was his right ring finger that he lost part of it. He was go-cart racing with Kevin Harvick and Clint Bowyer when it happened. He did have on protective gear but it just wasn't enough.

The doctor compared the injury to dropping a cinder block on your finger. It got really infected and had to be removed after the accident. Lucky for Jake Owen he is an amazing country singer and will be just fine after this injury and can go forward with his career.
