Mark Chesnutt Cancels Remaining 2021 Concerts Following Recent Surgery
Nearly three months after undergoing “urgent” surgery, ’90s hitmaker Mark Chesnutt has been forced to cancel the remainder of his 2021 shows.
The “Bubba Shot the Jukebox” singer underwent back surgery on July 22, and canceled some shows to allow himself time to recover.
“I’ve been suffering with this for a very long time, and postponed as long as I could,’ Chesnutt said at the time. “When the doctor says: ‘you have no choice,’ you have no choice! I hate to get off the road, just as the venues opened back up. I was really looking forward to this year! I appreciate the support and understanding from my fans, and I’ll see you all real soon.”
While recovering from surgery, the 58-year-old and his wife contracted COVID, but was cleared to go back on the road in September. Unfortunately, his return to the road continues to be delayed. On Wednesday (October 13), Chesnutt‘s team shared that the singer was being forced to cancel the remainder of his 2021 concerts to allow more time to recover from back surgery. But, his team promises his return to the stage in early 2022.
Mark Chesnutt was one of the most successful male vocalists of the ’90s with hits such as “Brother Jukebox,” “It Sure Is Monday,” “Almost Goodbye,” and a cover of Aerosmith’s “Don’t Want to Miss a Thing.” His first three albums and his 1996 Greatest Hits package were certified platinum, and his traditional country sound continues to be a favorite among country music fans.
We continue to pray for Mark Chesnutt’s full recovery and we look forward to seeing him back on the road next year!
