After announcing her Road to Happiness headlining tour a little over a month ago, Cam has taken to social media to announce that the tour has been cancelled.
The 16-city trek was set to kick off Sept. 26 in Nashville at the historic Ryman auditorium. While the Nashville date at the Ryman is still on, the rest of the tour will not be happening.
Fans that have purchased tickets have received a note from the venue, which Cam shared on Twitter.
“My friends who bought tickets for my tour this Fall: I had planned these shows to celebrate the release of my new music with you, but for reasons I can’t get into here, I decided I would NOT release my forthcoming album through Sony Nashville,” Cam wrote. “This is an incredible step forward with RCA New York and means this new music will have the best launch possible and the perfect tour will be happening with this music at a later date.”
She continues, “While it is disappointing to have to wait longer to see you, I know you would’ve done the same thing if you were in my shoes. The venue will honor your purchases with a refund and I will be back soon to give you the show you deserve with new music, a clear conscience and happy heart.”
Earlier this month, it was reported that Cam and Sony’s Arista Nashville imprint cut ties and Cam switched over to Sony’s RCA Records out of New York.
The 33-year-old just wrapped a tour with pop star Sam Smith, opening the North American leg of his Thrill of It All Tour over the summer.
Cam shared the cancellation letter with fans saying, “Hey guys, if you already had purchased tickets you should have gotten this note (above) from the venue, but for anyone planning on attending, unfortunately I have to postpone my US Fall tour dates. I’ll still be playing the European dates and the Ryman and I promise I will be back ASAP.”
We hope so. Cam is one artist country music can’t afford to do without.
