Chris Stapleton isn’t necessarily “starting over,” but the country superstar is postponing several dates of his ongoing All-American Road Show Tour. In a message posted to his official Instagram page Wednesday (Oct. 11), the “Tennessee Whiskey” singer revealed that “doctor’s orders” have forced him to reschedule the next three dates of his nationwide trek.
“To all my friends in Corpus Christi, Houston and Lafayette, I am very sorry to let you all know that I am unable to perform this weekend’s shows,” he wrote. “I have bronchitis and laryngitis, and on doctor’s orders am on vocal rest through the weekend in order to heal. I’m grateful for your patience and understanding, and hope to see you all in November.”
In the photo set’s caption, Stapleton clarified that “all tickets will be honored for the rescheduled dates.” The rescheduled dates are as follows: on Nov. 16, Stapleton will hit Lafayette, LA (originally Oct. 14), then make his way to Houston, TX, on Nov. 17 (originally Oct. 13), before finally gracing Corpus Christi, TX, on Nov. 17 (originally Oct. 12).
Chris Stapleton’s All-American Road Show Tour is the “You Should Probably Leave” singer’s first solo headlining concert tour. The trek has served as promotional support for his second, third, and fourth studio albums: 2017’s From A Room: Volume 1 and From A Room: Volume 2, and 2020’s Starting Over. Myriad opening acts have made their mark on the tour, including recent support acts such as Marcus King, Margo Price and The War and Treaty.
The eight-time Grammy winner is currently prepping the release of his forthcoming fifth studio album, Higher. He released the set’s lead single, “White Horse,” over the summer (Jul. 21), and the song has since reached No. 7 on Hot Country Songs and No. 31 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Chris Stapleton has earned 15 career entries on the Hot 100, including his sole top 10 hit, “Say Something” (with Justin Timberlake). Over on the Billboard 200, the “Scarecrow in the Garden” singer has collected four consecutive top 10 albums, including his sole No. 1 title, 2015’s Traveller (two weeks).
