Luke Bryan shows off fishing hook injury on Instagram: ‘This is gonna leave a mark’

Luke Bryan is “Hooked on It.” Literally.

The country singer posted a video to Instagram Tuesday of a bait and hook attempt gone wrong. According to Bryan, while on a fishing trip with his guitar tech Russ, the singer’s fishing hook got lodged in his thumb and pierced his hand.

The post was blurred with a sensitive content warning.

“Well, this is gonna leave a mark, pretty sure that’s in my bone,” the singer said while showing off the hook affixed to his hand. 

Fellow country singer Jake Owen commented on his post making a call back to one of Bryan’s songs off his “Kill the Lights” album.

“Huntin, Fishin, lovin every day,” Owen wrote. 

On Bryan’s Instagram story, the singer detailed his journey to a medical facility to get it removed. 

“Leave it to me, I ruined the fishing trip but we’ll be back on the water in about 25 minutes,” Bryan said. 

Eventually the hook was removed and hours later, Bryan posted a video of himself giving the camera a thumbs up.

“Got the hook out. We’re back,” Bryan said. 

Bryan’s representative Jessie Schmidt told USA TODAY Wednesday the singer “is fine.”

Bryan is expected to release the deluxe version of his album “Born Here Live Here” April 9 which will include six new songs. 

While releasing albums and fishing, Bryan is also a judge on the current season of “American Idol.” Alongside Lionel Richie and Katy Perry, the judges have most recently selected their top 24 contestants. 

“Idol” continues Sunday with the top 24 performing duets with celebrity singers including Katharine McPhee, Tori Kelly and Josh Groban.
