Carly Pearce says she and her family members are doing everything they can to prevent her mom from getting COVID-19:
(Carly Pearce)I am literally one of those people that’s like, ‘Do this for my mom if you’re not doing it for anybody else. It’s killing her to not be able to be around me. So, this coronavirus has taken a hit in my immediate family of just trying to make sure she’s all right.”
Carly Pearce says the reason this pandemic hits so close to home for her is because she’s concerned about her mother’s health:
(Carly Pearce) “Even though I’m going to see her, I’m staying at a different house. I’m not going to be really around her. She has stage four COPD. So this is a really, just terrifying time for my family of…she already has probably 30 percent lung use.”

Kenny Chesney has cancelled his 2020 Chillaxification Tour.
Kenny planned to kick off his 2020 Chillaxification Tour on April 18 in Arlington, Texas. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic in March, 11 dates on the tour–from April 18 to May 28–were initially scrapped.
Kenny had hoped to reboot his Chillaxification Tour on May 30 in Pittsburgh, and continue the tour with more than 20 dates through August. However, the tour is now officially postponed until 2021.
“With so many tours needing to move, and wanting to make sure we are in the best possible circumstances for No Shoes Nation, I think–and I hate this–it’s best to move everything into 2021,” said Kenny in a statement on his website. “In the best interest of everyone–No Shoes Nation, my road family, the staff at the venues–we have decided to quit moving the dates around on the calendar trying to make a chunk of this year work and move where we believe we can roll out our entire Chillaxification Tour.”
