Lauren Alaina just shared the news that due to a family emergency, she will not be able to appear in Florida this weekend at the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam.

Reports are her stepfather Sam Ramker is battling Stage 4 cancer. Lauren’s mother posted to a GoFundMe page that he is currently in the ICU with a lung infection.

It’s been a roller coaster of emotions for Lauren this week. She was just nominated for Best New Artist for the CMA Awards.

This year’s “country on the coast” lineup is still pretty solid if you’re up for the road trip. This weekend’s performers include Florida Georgia Line, Eric Church, Thomas Rhett, Chris Janson, Dustin Lynch, Brett Young, Cam, Justin Moore, Montgomery Gentry and Rodney Atkins.

Our best wishes to Lauren’s family.
