'Unable to perform': Music star Chris Stapleton cancels shows over illness

Country musical artist Chris Stapleton announced that he is canceling multiple shows due to illness.

Stapleton released the news on Instagram after losing his voice and being too ill to perform.

The news

"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," he shared on Instagram.

"I have bronchitis and laryngitis, and on doctor’s orders am on vocal rest through the weekend in order to heal," he continued.

The background

"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," Whiskey Riff reported.

"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," it added.

The recovery

In addition to Stapleton's physical recovery, his team is working hard to make sure his concert tour gets back on track.

"For those who cannot attend, please contact your point of purchase within the next seven days," he noted on social media with a list of the rescheduled dates of his concerts.

The artist's approach appears to show a stark contrast to some recent musical artists who have anger fans over canceling shows at the last minute, sometimes showing little concern for fans who made the effort to attend.

The health issue also led to many to send messages of support on social media, hoping Stapleton will "get well soon" and return to the stage.

The musical artist may be unable to perform for now but he seems set on being a class act to his fans in making things right over his canceled shows.
