Chris Young was on a roll this week, with massive success thanks to his latest song and plans to perform overseas, but he was forced to cancel five upcoming tour dates for an unexpected reason.
The country singer announced on his official Instagram account that he will be canceling a few of his shows in the United Kingdom due to COVID-19.
Tour dates in Glasgow, Manchester, Bristol, London, and the Long Road Festival have been canceled.
“I am excited to play all the new music from ‘Famous Friends’ for fans in the UK.”
After the dates were rescheduled, the singer assured fans that he would still be performing in the future.
Young has yet to reveal the official rescheduled dates for his canceled shows as of this writing. He also did not provide an update on the band’s health after contracting the virus.
The platinum-selling artist released “At The End of a Bar,” a collaboration track with Mitchell Tenpenny, and it quickly became a massive success.
The country stars topped the Billboard and Country radio charts, according to CMT.
According to the outlet, the song is about a 2021 blizzard at a bar in Nashville, Tennessee.
Despite the fact that most businesses in the city were closed due to the weather, the duo sat down and worked.
Speaking about the song’s meaning, Young stated that their experience was a “true testament” to not skipping any work days because you never know what will happen.
“It’s also a hell of a lot of fun to sing, and Mitchell Tenpenny and I had entirely too much fun stacking vocals on this, so we had to make it a duet.”
The song appears on Young’s album “Famous Friends.”
At this year’s ACM Awards, both musicians took the stage and performed the song in front of thousands of people.
The game was held at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“At the End of the Bar” cemented Chris Young’s place as one of the most successful musicians in country music history, becoming his 13th number one single and 11th as a songwriter.
