After announcing his brief break from touring, Chris Stapleton is addressing the issue behind his sudden decision with his fans on social media.
The country crooner has been forced to postpone eight U.S. tour stops after suffering a “broken bone and a detached tendon in [his] right index finger.”
“The doctor is hopeful that with some physical therapy I will be playing guitar again soon,” he continued. “Right now, I can’t possibly give you guys the show you deserve. I always want to give you my very best.”
Unfortunately, the next three weeks of “The All-American Road Show” have been postponed. Below is the full list of dates we are working to reschedule.
