Charles Kelley has postponed his The Driver Tour.

Kelley’s solo trek was scheduled to run from Nov. 28 through Jan. 28; however, the singer postponed a number of the tour’s opening shows just days before they were scheduled to occur, and according to a statement on his website, “a portion of upcoming tour dates [are] moving to early 2016.”

“Thanks for your continued support,” the statement continues, noting that rescheduled dates will be posted on Kelley’s site as they are announced. “Stay tuned for major album release news coming soon!”

No additional information about rescheduled shows, nor a reason for the postponements, has been given. Kelley did perform in New York City on Dec. 1 as scheduled.

“Lady Antebellum kind of skipped this whole spot in our career … We never got to do the full club tour, which is always a dream of mine,” Kelley told The Boot shortly before his solo trek was originally announced.” … [T]here’s something about playing in a dirty club: people grabbing on your legs, you can smell the beer in the air, you can see everybody’s faces … I told them, ‘I’m gonna go out, no setlist, not a big production, and just fly by the seat of my pants a little bit, for a few months.”

Kelley released his first solo single, “The Driver,” in late September. The song, featuring Dierks Bentley and Eric Paslay, has been nominated for a Grammy, for Best Country Duo / Group Performance.

“[It’s] maybe a little bit more like California country. It’s not very pop; a little more Eagles. I don’t know the right word,” Kelley explains to The Boot of his upcoming record. “There’s not three voices, so it’s already going to be a little edgier, because it’s not as pretty with all the three-part harmonies.”
