Luke Bryan is the latest artist to push back his album and tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. Bryan’s Born Here, Live Here, Die Here album -- initially scheduled for release April 24 -- has been pushed to Aug. 7. The country singer revealed the news to fans on Tuesday afternoon (April 7).

“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,” he writes.

“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.”

Bryan’s tour was originally scheduled to launch May 28 in Cincinnati, Ohio. The trek now kicks off July 10 in Orange Beach, Ala. Special guests include Morgan Wallen, Caylee Hammack and Runaway June.
