Chris Stapleton announced Wednesday that he was being forced to postpone three weeks of his The All-American Road Show tour, as well as his performance at the 2017 CMA Music Festival. The tour interruption was blamed on “unforeseen circumstances” in Wednesday’s announcement, but the country star took to social media late Thursday to shed some light on the reason behind the concert cancellations.
“After seeing a specialist, I have some information to share,” Stapleton wrote on Facebook after thanking fans for their concern and patience. “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,” he continued. “Right now, I can’t possibly give you guys the show you deserve. I always want to give you my very best.”
The post accompanied a photo of Stapleton holding up his injured hand with his wife, Morgane, by his side.
The cause of 39-year old Stapleton’s injury is unknown.
We wish Chris Stapleton a full and speedy recovery!
