Sara Evans was forced to cancel her appearance at Thursday night’s ACM Awards just hours before showtime.

Sara Evans was scheduled to attend the 59th Academy of Country Music Awards in Frisco, Texas, on Thursday night, where she was to present an award. But, sickness has caused her to withdraw from the event and reschedule some upcoming concerts.

The “No Place That Far” singer shared a statement to social media explaining, “Unfortunately I have been super sick this week. I was hoping to feel better, but I am not able to make it to the ACM Awards tonight and I have to reschedule my shows in Rocky Mount, VA, this weekend.”

Sara Evans is an 11-time ACM Award nominee, with 7 of those nods being in the Female Vocalist of the Year category (formerly known as Top Female Vocalist). She won the award in 2005, one year before Carrie Underwood would win three years in a row followed by an impressive 8-year run for Miranda Lambert.

Evans is currently in the middle of a 29-city tour and fresh off a surprise performance at Stagecoach. During his highly-anticipated Stagecoach set filled with classic country covers, Post Malone invited Sara Evans to join him on stage to sing her 2004 chart-topping single, “Suds In The Bucket.”

The song was released as the third single from Evans’ album Restless, which received an ACM Album of the Year nomination in 2004.
