After the postponement was announced, the following statement was posted to Stapleton's website:

Unfortunately, the next three weeks of “The All-American Road Show” have been postponed.  Below is the full list of dates we are working to reschedule.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.  Hold on to your tickets for now, and stay tuned for updates.

In another statement later that week, Stapleton announced that the tour was postponed because of a hand injury:

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
