Luke Bryan has decided to push back his new album and upcoming US tour due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

His new album Born Here, Live Here, Die Here was scheduled for release April 24.

It will come out on August 7.

The country singer revealed the news to fans overnight. 

“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 said.

“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.”
