Country singer Tyler Farr is canceling upcoming shows to rest his voice after having surgery to remove a polyp on his vocal cords.

A statement released Wednesday (Jan. 27) from his label, Columbia Nashville, said the "Redneck Crazy" singer was diagnosed after getting a severe case of bronchitis at the end of last year. Following his surgery, his doctors at the Vanderbilt Voice Clinic recommended vocal rest followed by aggressive therapy.

Farr said in a statement that he hates canceling shows, but he wants his body to heal to hopefully prevent fewer problems in the long run. He was scheduled to open for Lee Brice starting in February.
