Rhett becomes latest to postpone tour

Monday, May 18, 2020 – Thomas Rhett announced today that The Center Point Road Tour is being postponed until 2021 due to COVID-19.

"Hometeam, it has been a wild few months. I pray each and every one of you are well," said Rhett. "I hope that those who can be are safely at home with their families, and to those of you who are on the front lines - our health care workers, our delivery drivers, grocery store workers and everyone else working in our communities - thank you for keeping our country going during this time."

"We have made the decision to reschedule my 2020 concert dates to 2021," he said. "This decision was made with the health, safety and well-being of our fans, touring crew and venue staff as our priority. If you're able to come out in 2021, your tickets will be honored, and if you need a refund, you'll be receiving an email soon from your point of purchase with instructions. I miss seeing y'all out on the road and can't wait until we are back in your neck of the woods next summer. I'll keep writing songs and making music, hoping to hear your voices singing back to me next year louder than ever."

CD review - Life Changes Thomas Rhett references mangoritas, Coldplay and verified Instagram accounts on his third album, and for some, that may be a deal-breaker.
