UPDATED: Chris Stapleton Cancels Upcoming Tour Dates Due to Broken Hand

UPDATE: Chris Stapleton published a letter regarding his cancellations on his website the evening of June 1, stating the following:

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
