– Florida Georgia Line canceled its I Love My Country Tour 2021 today due to COVID-19.
This is the second major cancellation this week. Garth Brooks announced he was postponing five stadium shows due to COVID. Festivals and venues are starting to require proof of vaccination and/or a recent negative test to be able to enter.
"There is nothing better than seeing all of your faces from the stage, feeling your good energy, and making memories together," said FGL's Tyler Hubbard. "We were hopeful we could get back on the road this fall and are so bummed to have to cancel this tour, but we know in our hearts that we still have to make sure we're keeping our fans and crew safe. It's unfortunate that we have to cancel, but we hope y'all understand. We love our fans and can't wait to be back out when the time is right."
"Although we've been able to see some of y'all at shows recently, everyone's continued safety has been weighing heavy on us," said FGL's Brian Kelley. "To our fans, band, crew and all of the venues around the country, thank you for your love and support. We couldn't do what we do without you, and we hope we can all do our part to bring live music back soon."
The 29-stop trek featuring Russell Dickerson as direct support, plus openers Lauren Alaina and Redferrin, was due to launch at Cellairis Amphitheatre at Lakewood in Atlanta on Sept. 24, and run through Nov. 20 at Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle.
For all current ticket holders, refunds will be issued to the original method of payment used at time of purchase. No action is required to obtain a refund.
Kelley just released a solo album, "Sunshine State of Mind," a beach-themed CD that was a departure from the FGL sound.
