He wrote in the accompanying caption,
"Headed in for surgery... I was trying to avoid it, but since I play guitar for a living I need to get this done."
However, Owen is adamant he will be back on stage by Thursday, when he is due to perform in Ohio as part of the Country Concert line-up, and insists he will honor his commitments to play at Boston, Massachusetts' fabled Fenway Park stadium this weekend when he will be performing alongside Jason Aldean and Miranda Lambert.
His latest Tweet read...
"Surgery went well yesterday. On the mend. Currently pain pill tweeting. Might have to sit on a stool 4 shows this wk but ill be there!!"
