Luke Bryan delays album, tour

Singer pushes both back due to COVID-19

Luke Bryan has postponed the release of his next album and start of tour due to COVID-19. Bryan was planning to release Born Here Live Here Die Here on April 24th but moved it to August 7th, and pushed the Proud To Be Right Here Tour from a May start to July 10th. Bryan shared the news via a social media post on Tuesday (April 7th).

“I wanted to reach out myself and let you know that we have decided to push back the release of my next album, Born Here Live Here Die Here to August 7, 2020 as well as the start of my Proud To Be Right Here Tour to July 10, 2020,” Bryan states. “What an incredibly confusing and scary time our world is facing right now, and it is important we continue to follow the guidelines we have been given and do our part to keep everyone safe. With that in mind, we are choosing to stay home at this time so we can have fun sharing this music and tour with you this summer. I truly believe that music can provide all forms of emotional connections for everyone and I can’t wait to get on the road and share these new songs with you soon.”

The new album includes his 23rd No. 1 single “Knockin’ Boots” and current smash “What She Wants Tonight.”

Morgan Wallen is the special guest on the tour with openers Caylee Hammack and Runaway June.
