Country music star Jake Owen played through the pain when he took to the stage on Monday (19Aug13) just hours after having part of his finger amputated.

The singer's right hand was crushed in a go-karting accident last month (Jul13) and he had hoped to bounce back quickly, but the digit began bleeding on Sunday (18Aug13), so doctors told him they would have to chop off the tip.

Owen underwent the procedure on Monday morning but refused to call off his Summer Block Party show in Nashville, Tennessee later that evening.

The Barefoot Blue Jean Night hitmaker had bandages wrapped around his right ring finger, but he still attempted to play guitar at the free gig for his fans.

Before the show, Owen told news channel Minnesota 93, "Not to be too graphic, but this morning at 10.30 they just went ahead and amputated the last half of it off, so yeah, today they cut from the joint - that whole joint - they took it off, so I kind of try to pretend like it doesn't hurt right now but it's a little sensitive. Sensitive's a good word... I was like, 'Man, you don't realise, but can we just wait and do this tomorrow because I have this show tonight that's a really big deal...'"

Florida Georgia Line, Dierks Bentley and Thomas Rhett were among the acts who joined Owen onstage at the gig.
