The 39-year-old country singer-songwriter, whose son River tragically died due to a drowning accident at home at the age of 3, announced the news on Wednesday (June 19) in a YouTube video.
“I’m still going to do music, in fact I’m going to go back on tour next week and I’m going to bring them with me,” he said in the video alongside his wife, Amber.
“We’re all going to go,” she added.
However, he will not be doing any meet and greets.
“I don’t think that’s the best place for me to be right now. A. it’s going to be strange if we have to talk about River and B. it’s going to be even stranger if we don’t talk about River. So I think it’s best for all of us until I get my head straight,” he said.
“Music has always been healing. That’s the place I’ve always turned to.”
