Pop-Country Super-Star Sam Hunt made the decision yesterday that he could not go forward with his performance scheduled for last night at the Taste of Country Music Festival in Hunter, New York due to an illness.
The ‘Leave the Night On’ singer released the following statement on his social media accounts:
“New York – I’ve never had to cancel a show before but tonight I flat out… can’t sing anywhere near as well as I need to do these songs justice. I got sick and I’ve had some issues with my voice. I tried pushing through for a show a couple nights ago and zapped everything I had left. I believe in mind over matter but this time it let me down. I’ll do what I need to do to make it up to all the folks who came out to see us tonight.”
As stated, this marked the first time Hunt has ever had to pull out of festival appearance. We would like to wish Sam our best and hope for a speedy recovery!
