Chris Stapleton Wrote An Open Letter Revealing Why He Was Forced To Postpone Some Concerts

06.01.17 2 months ago

Dear Everybody, First of all, I want to thank you for all of the positive thoughts and kind words you have shared over the last few days. So many of you have been inconvenienced and I'm grateful for your patience and graciousness. After seeing a specialist, I have some information to share. I’m on the road to recovery from a broken bone & a detached tendon in my right index finger. The doctor is hopeful that with some physical therapy I will be playing guitar again soon. Right now, I can't possibly give you guys the show you deserve. I always want to give you my very best. There is little in this world that I enjoy more than getting to make music with all of you night after night. Thank you for the privilege. Your support and understanding through all of this lets me know now, more than ever, I have the best fans in the world. Sincerely, Chris Stapleton

Chris Stapleton broke a lot of fans hearts recently when he revealed that he was going to have to postpone the next three weeks of concert on his ongoing All American Road Show tour. At the time of the announcement, he didn’t give any reason for why the dates had to be pushed back, and speculation ran wild.

Looking to put all the rumors to bed, Stapleton posted a long note to his website on Thursday night explaining that he’s currently suffering from a broken bone and a detached tendon in my right index finger. “There is little in this world that I enjoy more than getting to make music with all of you night after night. Thank you for the privilege.”

Here’s the entire note:
