Tyler Farr is being forced to cancel his upcoming performances after having a polyp removed from his vocal chords.
This is the last thing I would’ve ever expected,” says Tyler. “I sing hard, and I give it everything I have every night, but I really believed I was putting my training to work. After a No. 1 song, an awesome tour with Jason and getting engaged, this is not how I thought I was going to be winding up 2015.”
Tyler will undergo aggressive therapy and has canceled all shows for the next few months. He adds, “I hate canceling shows, especially the upcoming tour with my buddy Lee Brice, but I never want to give the fans less than everything. And I know the sooner I let my body heal, the sooner I can get back out there.…To me, it’s never about the next few days, but doing the right thing overall, and now I’m under doctor’s orders.”
Tyler’s run on Lee’s Life Off My Years Tour was set to begin Feb. 4 and continue through April 23, and included two shows in Hawaii. In the wake of this development, Lee will bring Maddie & Tae, Clare Dunn and his buddy Jerrod Niemann out on various dates to fill Tyler’;s boots.
