OFFSTAGE: Jake Owen Gets Teeth Yanked

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Jake Owen had his wisdom teeth pulled out a few days ago. Just like you or I would. The only difference? He tweeted a video of the aftermath because I’m sure he thought his fans would get a kick out of seeing him still a little out of it from the anesthetic. “Not so worried about the pain … Just pissed about losing my wisdom,” Owen had tweeted before the surgery.

“Hey everybody, Jake here. I got gauze in my mouth. I tried to drink some water and I spilled it all over my face ’cause I don’t know where my lip is,” he says to the camera that his mom is holding — and she is laughing pretty hard, by the way.

He even dumps the actual teeth out of the little envelope and shows them off. “I’m a soldier. Look at the roots on that thing. There’s one, there’s two. Yank, yank,” he slurs. But he promises that he is doing fine and will be out there singing again soon.
