Brett Young had to leave the stage Saturday night after singing just one song in a concert opening for Kelsea Ballerini in Sioux City, Iowa.
He later explained what happened when he posted to Twitter, “Sioux City, I’m so sorry!! #MMMTour
Brett, who could barely talk, said in a video to fans, “Hey, what’s up y’all? I just walked off stage here in Iowa. It was the most bizarre thing. As you can tell, my voice is even worse now. Soundcheck was good, the whole day was good, and the last 15 minutes before I walked onstage, my voice started getting dry,” he said. “I don’t know if it’s allergies, if I’m sick — it feels [like] laryngitis. I’m so sorry. This is literally my least favorite thing on the planet, to have to cancel a show, especially to have to do it onstage. I love you guys so much and I’m going to make this up [to you].”
