Sorry for having to cancel the show at Country Stampede. We were here and ready to jam with u guys tonite. We can play in the rain, the lightning being so close is what got us. I apologize to you guys but hopefully we will see you soon.”

Added Aldean: “The safety of my fans and the safety of my band and crew is something we put first.”
