Randy Travis has cancelled most of his The Music of Randy Travis tour dates with James Dupré, citing production issues. Refunds are available at point of purchase.

Canceled shows include dates in Macon, Georgia, Knoxville, Tennessee, Atlanta, Georgia and Greenbay, Wisconsin.

Currently, the October 16 show in Indianapolis, Indiana is still on, along with shows in Evansville, Indiana, Minneapolis, Minnesota and at Nashville, Tennessee's Ryman Auditorium. The show at the Island View Casino in Gulfport, Mississippi is still scheduled but is now sold out.

The tour, which was announced in September, was to feature Travis' long-time touring band (Steve Hinson, David Johnson, Lance Dary, Bill Cook, Joe Van Dyke and Herb) as well as fellow country singer and The Price co-star James Dupré.

Per a press release, Dupré was set to perform Travis' 16 number one hits with the band, with Travis making a special appearance.

In addition, VIP passes available for the tour stops offered fans the opportunity to meet Travis.

"We are incredibly excited to be back on the road and give Randy's fans a chance to hear his music live again, and who better to sing his many hits than James Dupré?" said Travis' wife Mary Davis Travis in a press release in September.

After Travis suffered a stroke on July 7, 2013, any sort of tour seemed like a long shot. Against all odds, Travis has overcome the setbacks laid out in his recently released book Forever and Ever, Amen A Memoir of Music, Faith and Braving the Storms of Life for this fall's The Music of Randy Travis Tour.

Travis changed the country music landscape with his debut major label album, 1986's Storms of Life. Since then, he's earned seven Grammy Awards, six CMA awards, 11 ACM Awards, 10 AMA awards, eight Dove awards, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and a spot in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum's rotunda.
