Unfortunately, Rodney Crowell decides to cancel his remaining tour dates for the year.
Although Crowell and his team did not go deep into the details of the singer’s current health status, he confirmed in a statement on his Official Twitter account that his doctors advised him to take a long, complete rest. “Regretfully, I must cancel the remainder of the 2017 tour schedule. An impressive team of doctors have confirmed what for the past year I’ve instinctively known: dealing with the root cause of my health issues requires complete rest.” “For the foreseeable future, with expert medical guidance, my work will consist of quietly encouraging my body to return to its natural state,” he added yesterday in a message to his fans.
Prior to his huge announcement, the Grammy-winning singer and songwriter had previously exhibited a dramatic decline in his overall well-being. He was unable to attend the awarding for his song It Ain’t Over Yet just last September 13 because he was feeling ill. His song was hailed Song of the Year by the Americana Honors and Awards.
Back in late October of 2016, Crowell had to be rushed to the emergency room mid-way through his sound check performance for a benefit concert in Nashville. At that time, the country singer began experiencing “cardiac symptoms” before his scheduled concert even began. He was discharged not long after. He even made it to a performance of Waylon Jennings’ Waymore’s Blues that same night.
But now, regretful as it may be for his career, Rodney chose to prioritize his health and work towards achieving full recovery.
Whatever it is that your body is going through, Rodney, we are giving you our full support on your journey to improving your health. We sure hope you can get back up on stage soon so we can savor more of your amazing music.
