The “Water Under The Bridge” singer revealed the news in a statement to fans on Thursday (July 28).
“Unfortunately, due to ongoing government restrictions, Sam Hunt will not be able to perform at Boots & Hearts Music Festival on August 5th,” the statement read.
“We were hopeful these restrictions would be lifted as the date got closer, but it’s now apparent that won’t happen. Boots & Hearts music festival has secured a great replacement, and we all hope you can continue to have a great weekend in Burl’s Creek,” the statement continued.
