One of the coolest parts of country music is the fact that fans not only fall in love with an artist’s music, but they also fall in love with the person they are when the bright lights aren’t shining upon them.

And when the artist you love is hurting, you feel it yourself.

It’s a feeling many Jake Owen fans felt back in 2013, when news began to surface that Jake’s father Steve was battling throat cancer. Yet, now comes the amazing news that after treatment, his dad is “cancer free and healthy.” The news seemed to hit Jake the most during the recent golf tournament at Pebble Beach.

“My Dad is BACK,” Jake said in an Instagram post on Feb. 28. “Cancer free and healthy. Carrying my golf bag! Fulfilling a lifelong dream. This is what life is all about. I love you Dad and couldn’t be more proud of you.”

In the same post, Jake recalled when life was much different for his dad due to his health.

“Three years ago I wanted him to carry my golf bag for Pebble Beach…I look forward to every year,” Jake wrote. “Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with throat cancer and ended up with a feeding tube and massive amounts of radiation. He lost 35 lbs and watched the tournament with my mom from his @mayoclinic bed in the height of Minnesota winter.”

We send our well wishes to Jake, his dad and everyone experiencing God’s miracles in their lives!
