Country singing duo Maddie & Tae have paused all of their upcoming concert dates after doctors ordered pregnant Taylor Kerr to stay home on bedrest.
The band announced the news on social media today (December 27th). And they emphasized that the decision was made for Kerr’s unborn baby girl.
“As excited as we are to get out on the road and see everyone, we are holding off on our return a bit longer,” the singers wrote on Instagram.
According to the post, both Taylor and the baby are doing well. But for unrevealed reasons, Taylor’s OB has suggested that she stay on temporary bedrest. The singers did not specify when Tae could return to the stage.
“Out of precaution, we are postponing our upcoming tour dates including the CMT Next Women of Country Tour: All Song No Static Tour,” they added.
Maddie & Tae assured their fans that the postponed events will be rescheduled soon.
“We appreciate your understanding. And we’ll be back on tour with new music as soon as we can.”
Taylor Kerr first announced that she’s expecting last month. She also shared that the baby girl is due in the spring. The child will be the first for Taylor and her husband, songwriter Josh Kerr.
