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.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
