Country Stars Cancel Shows Amid COVID-19

Dozens of Country stars have had to postpone or cancel their 2020 tours amid concerns of COVID 19. Most of the decisions came after the cities or States they were performing in released statements with mandatory banning of large gatherings.

Some artist like Kenny Chesney made the decision based on safety alone.

“In times of uncertainty, I won’t take chances with those I love.” Kenny Chesney said in a post. He postponed the first leg of his tour due to start Saturday, April 18 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Representatives for Messina Touring are working in the hopes of finding alternate dates later in the touring season. Hopefully within six weeks, all the moving pieces will be resolved; new dates should be in place. Those unable to attend will be refunded.

Chris Stapleton postponed his All-American Road Show in Austin, Arlington, Biloxi and Birmingham through March 21.

Dan + Shay have postponed the first leg of their tour after mandatory postponements in Philadelphia as well as several other upcoming shows.

Many other artist have had to cancel shows. Cole Swindell, Lee Brice, LOCASH, Little Big Town and Ryan Hurd have all canceled shows in the upcoming weeks.

One of the largest postponements so far is the famous Country to Country Festival 2020 in London, Dublin and Glasgow. The line up included Eric Church, Luke Combs, Darius Rucker, Brett Young, Runaway June and more.
