But in the midst of this busy and exciting time, Wilson had some concerning news to share.

On Wednesday (July 27), Wilson announced the cancellation of two upcoming shows. She cited a “family emergency” as the reason for the cancellations.

Due to a family emergency, I’m unable to play this weekend’s shows in Maquoketa, IA and Arnold Park, IA,” she wrote. “I’m so sorry to cancel last minute, but please trust I would not be backing out if it weren’t critical. Please keep my family in your prayers.”
