CMT Next Women of Country: Bring My Flowers Now Tour postponed through summer
Two-time 2020 GRAMMY winner Tanya Tucker has announced the unfortunate decision to postpone her highly-anticipated summer leg of her CMT Next Women of Country: Bring My Flowers Now Tour through the end of August. The singer shared the news to her social media followers.
“Unfortunately due to gathering restrictions, my team has made the difficult decision to postpone all of my headline Bring My Flowers Now Tour dates through the end of August; new dates will be announced soon,” she writes. “My heart is absolutely broken knowing that we have to wait to be together again. However, I know, it will be all the more sweeter once we can do so safely. For anyone needing a refund, please contact your point of purchase. Otherwise, hold onto that ticket as I promise to throw one heck of a party when we are allowed to! Those who hold onto their ticket are also in for a sweet surprise that we are cooking up! Keep an eye out for an email in the coming weeks that will have details. Please everyone be safe and stay happy and healthy. Can’t wait to see you again very soon.”
This is the second postponement of the trek due to COVID-19 that will also feature Walker County, Erin Enderlin and Hailey Whitters opening at select stops. As of now, the trek will resume on September 18th in Roland, OK and wrap October 25th in Bakersfield, CA. These dates are subject to change due to social distancing orders.
This 2020 Class marks a total of 75 female acts that have been named as part of the program since its inception in 2013. A staunch advocate for country music’s female artists, CMT launched its Next Women of Country campaign in an effort to support and expose developing female talent, both signed and unsigned, in a male-dominated format. The campaign showcases emerging female artists across all CMT screens throughout the year, and in six years since its launch, CMT has expanded the initiative to include five CMT Women of Country Tours, anchored by superstar acts including Jennifer Nettles, Martina McBride and Sara Evans; a CMT.com digital series titled Next Women of Country Live; and more. Notable alumnae of the franchise who have achieved both commercial and critical acclaim include Kacey Musgraves, Kelsea Ballerini, Maren Morris, Lauren Alaina, RaeLynn and Lindsay Ell.
