Hit making country duo Sugarland took to social media on Wednesday (May 20), offering fans a bittersweet update on their 2020 plans.

“We have good news and bad news,” duo member Kristian Bush announced, with bandmate Jennifer Nettles appearing next to him on a now-familiar conference style video chat. The good news was that Sugarland has plans to release brand new music in the immediate future, promising that the wait won’t be long. But the bad news was the predictable revelation that the band’s There Goes the Neighborhood Tour 2020 has officially been canceled.

“We held out ’till the very end,” Bush said. “Everybody else canceled, and then finally us.”

The tour was orginally announced in February and set to begin June 4 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, with more than 25 dates featuring Mary Chapin CarpenterTenille Townes and Danielle Bradbery on select dates. As they mentioned, Sugarland are hardly alone in their decision to scrap 2020 over COVID-19 concerns, with acts like Kenny Chesney, Maren Morris, Thomas Rhett, Lady Antebellum and more coming to the same conclusion.

“But we will see you all very soon,” Nettles added. “We hope you all stay safe and healthy, and stay tuned to see what we have coming for you — new music, fun things. We’re settling into the new normal, and we’ll send you something soon.”
