Dan + Shay Scrap 2020 Arena Tour With Plans to Reschedule in 2021

Dan Smyers of Dan + Shay announced via Twitter on June 25 that they are scrapping their 2020 Arena Tour with plans to reschedule it in 2021.

“We have been holding on to the hope that something might shift, something might change, that we might actually be able to make these shows happen,” said Dan, in part, in the video. “But unfortunately, as of now, it doesn’t look like it’s going to be possible out of the respect and safety of our fans, our band, our crew and everyone involved. So, what we’ve decided to do is move the entire tour from 2020 to 2021.”

Dan + Shay kicked off their 2020 Arena Tour with back-to-back shows in Nashville on March 6 and 7, followed by a stop in Columbus, Ohio, on March 8. On March 12, however, the duo was forced to cancel their remaining dates in March and April due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, with plans to resume on July 30 through October 31.

Dan reassured fans that they would announce new 2021 dates as soon as they had them locked down. Furthermore, he let fans know they would be able to request a refund within 30 days of the announcement of new dates if they are unable to attend the rescheduled show.

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

If you’ve been to lower Broadway in Nashville over the last several years, you know country music artist owned honkytonks having been sprouting up all along Music City’s famous strip.

Jason Aldean, John Rich, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Alan Jackson all already have venues…but now there’s another name being thrown in the mix, and it’s a first!

Miranda Lambert will be the first female country artist to have a downtown venue. Miranda’s place will be located at 308 Broadway, and looks to be named “Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa.”

Miranda was perhaps encouraged to move into this new venture by a 2018 Nashville Business Journal poll. When music industry pros were asked, “Which female country star should open a downtown bar?” — Miranda garnered the most votes.

Miranda is partnering with TC Restaurant Group on the new place, and it looks like even more details will be revealed in the coming weeks.
