This year has been a busy one for Chris Stapleton. He released his much-anticipated sophomore album, From A Room: Volume 1 and embarked on his All-American Road Show tour. The tour has taken Stapleton all over the country, and extends through November.

June was due to be one of Stapleton’s busiest months on the tour so far. He had a total of 13 shows scheduled throughout the month, including an appearance at the CMA Music Fest in Nashville.

However, Stapleton’s CMA Fest performance has now been cancelled and eight other shows on his tour have been postponed. Stapleton’s team posted a statement revealing that “the next three weeks” of his tour have been postponed. All of the affected dates and locations were listed in the statement.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause,” the statement read. “Hold on to your tickets for now, and stay tuned for updates.”

Stapleton’s team did not share the reason why the concerts had to be postponed. Rolling Stone states that Stapleton’s rep “declined to provide additional information on the announcement at this time.”

The CMA also shared Stapleton’s statement and spread the news that he “will unfortunately not be performing” at the CMA fest. The CMA stated that Stapleton had to cancel his CMA Fest appearance “due to unforeseen circumstances.”

Whatever the reason may be behind the postponed shows, we’ll be keeping Stapleton in our thoughts. Hopefully he’ll be able to hit the road again soon!
