Jake Owen's father is undergoing radiation treatment in a bid to beat throat cancer.

The country star revealed last month (Jan13) that his dad Steve had undergone surgery in Minnesota to treat the disease, and the Alone with You hitmaker has now opened up about the health battle.

Owen tells TheCountryVibe.com his father is having radiation treatment at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester following the operation.

He adds, "I talk to him every day. I think he gets annoyed with it because he thinks that I'm over-analysing the situation. But I'm not. I'm just careful and my main goal is to keep his spirits high.

"What he's going through in his mind isn't a big deal, because my dad's good at everything he's ever done and he works hard so he can beat it. But I remind him sometimes, whether he wants to hear it or not, 'Dad, what you're going through is not easy. But I'm here for you, mom's there for you'."
