Chris Stapleton has taken to social media to update fans on why he postponed three weeks of “The All-American Road Show” tour, and cancelled his appearance at the 2017 CMA Music Festival on June 11. Due to breaking a bone and having a detached tendon in his right index finger, Stapleton had to postpone several shows in order to recover.
In a heartfelt note posted on social media, Stapleton wrote:
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.
We’re sending well wishes to Chris Stapleton for a speedy recovery.
