The country singer-songwriter, who is 44, shared a gruesome video on Instagram on Monday that showed a fishing lure pierced through his thumb in two separate places.
"Well...this is gonna leave a mark," Bryan says in a video as he stood inches from the water, showing an up-close look at his thumb with a bit of blood on it. "Pretty sure that's in my bone."
In subsequent posts shared to his Instagram Story, the "American Idol" judge explained he had gone out on a fishing trip with his guitar tech, Russ, when the injury took place.
"I invited Russ on a fishing trip and leave it to me, I ruined the fishing trip. But we'll be back on the water in about 25 minutes," Bryan said calmly.
Another video shows him in the waiting room of a medical facility. "We're violating HIPPA somehow," he said before letting out some laughter.
All appeared to be ok, however, as an hour later he posted a video from the water with Russ by his side. "Got the hook out! We're back!" he updated fans, giving them a thumbs up.
Instagram placed a "sensitive content" warning on Bryan's video.
The "One Margarita" singer's post received attention from friends and fans who were shocked by what they saw.
"I leave your a-- for 2 hours and this happens...damn baby," Bryan's wife, Caroline Bryan, commented.
"This is gonna hurt your Yelp reviews...," pro golfer Justin Thomas joked.
"Huntin, Fishin, lovin every day," wrote fellow country star Jake Owen as a nod to Bryan's song.
"You're supposed to get that part in the fish's mouth Luke," another said.
"To help with that pain you better 1 margarita, 2 margarita, shot!! a wise man once said," another reacted with Bryan's lyrics.
