Chris Stapleton Cancels Three Shows After Being Put On Vocal Rest: “On Doctor’s Orders”

Chris Stapleton has a ton of stuff going for him right now, but the Grammy Award winner is going to have to put things on hold for the moment as he recovers from bronchitis and laryngitis.

The illnesses he’s dealing with will force the country star to take some time off, and he just announced today that he would be postponing some of his All-American Road Show tour dates.

For some reason, I just assumed that Stapleton’s voice was so strong that it was immune to any sort of illness…

Stapleton announced that this weekend’s shows in Texas and Louisiana will be rescheduled to later dates, and that all tickets for the original shows will be honored for the postponed shows. Refunds will also be available for those that can’t make the rescheduled November show.

A personal note from Stapleton was shared on his social media accounts, saying:

“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.

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.”

This comes about a month out from the release of Stapleton’s highly anticipated new album Higher on November 10th. The singles that have already been released ahead of the project, “White Horse” and “Think I’m In Love With You,” have set the bar incredibly high for the rest of the track list.

Canceling shows can sometimes be controversial with concert goers, but it seems as though Stapleton managed to give his fans enough of a heads up to where it wasn’t the end of the world.

Social media users were sympathetic in the reply section of the announcement, sending nothing but kind words Stapleton’s way:
