Country music star Chris Young has undergone surgery on his hand after a nasty cooking injury forced him to scrap an autograph signing session on Thursday night.

The “Who I Am with You” singer accidentally cut his left hand with a kitchen knife on Thursday, and checked in to a Nashville, Tennessee hospital on Friday to have the deep gash stitched up.

The 28-year-old injured himself while making a sandwich after attending his 13th annual fan club party aboard the General Jackson showboat.

Young’s injury and subsequent surgery ruled him out of a Saturday night set at the CMA Music Festival in the city.
