Luke Bryan has postponed his Proud to Be Right Here Tour and the release of his forthcoming album Born Here, Live Here Die Here. The tour, which was originally set to kick off on May 28 in Cincinnati, Ohio will now kick off on May 30, 2021.

"With the health and safety of my fans, team and venue staff being a top priority we feel it is best to postpone my #ProudToBeRightHereTour and are excited to announce these new 2021 dates," Bryan wrote.

Earlier this year, Bryan announced that his forthcoming seventh album Born Here, Live Here, Die Here, originally scheduled for release on April 24, will now be released on August 7, 2020. The album features previously released singles "Knockin' Boots" and "What She Wants Tonight." The album is the follow up to Bryan's 2017 album What Makes You Country.

On social media, Bryan explained that the tour was postponed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the social distancing guidelines necessary to curb the spread of the virus.

"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," Bryan wrote on Instagram. "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."

The trek will include over 30 cities, including stops in St. Louis, Nashville, New York City and Los Angeles.
