As a result of her participation in the upcoming season of ABC's Dancing With The Stars, Lauren Alaina has postponed her fall That Girl Was Me Tour until early 2020.

"After talking to a few of my friends who have been on the show, I realized I couldn't give the show and the tour 100 percent," Alaina wrote on Instagram. "Dancing with the Stars is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that I am so excited about ... I am SO sorry for any inconvenience this causes to those of you who may not be able to make the new dates. I hope I can make it up to you somehow. I'm so thankful for your support in this crazy journey we are on."

All 11 dates from Alaina's first-ever headline tour, featuring opening act Fillmore, have been rescheduled for January and February. Per Alaina's post, tickets from the original dates can be refunded or transferred to the new dates.

The "Ladies in the '90s" singer will compete in season 28 beginning on Mon., Sept. 16.  She'll compete against NFL legend Ray Lewis, supermodel Christie Brinkley, Supremes member Mary Wilson, former White House press secretary Sean Spicer and seven other celebrities from the worlds of sports, music and television.

The new season's Sept. 16 debut comes nearly 10 months since country radio personality Bobby Bones won the prior season. ABC skipped a spring series for the first time since the show debuted in fall 2006.
