Country music star Jake Owen had to cut short his set at a festival in Indiana on Friday (30Aug13) due to dangerous weather conditions.

The singer took to the stage at the Blueberry Festival but he was only able to play six songs before he cancelled the gig over health and safety concerns.

The Barefoot Blue Jean Night hitmaker took to his page to apologise for his early departure.

He tweeted, "Plymouth, Indiana... I am so sorry y'all. I never want to cut a set short, but it's for all of our safety. Be safe. Thanks for coming out."

The 32 year old has been urged to return to Indiana soon, with one follower begging, "Jake Owen needs to come back to Plymouth and give a concert for the people who payed (sic) for tickets to Blueberry."
