Columbia Nashville artist Tyler Farr has been placed on complete vocal rest, following a microlaryngeal surgery to remove a vocal polyp from his vocal cords. Farr was given a good report from the Vanderbilt Voice Clinic post-surgery. In order to maximize healing, Farr has cancelled all concert dates for the next few months.

Farr first noticed vocal issues, which were identified during a severe case of bronchitis, while on tour with Jason Aldean this past summer.

“This is the last thing I would’ve ever expected,” says the operatically-trained Farr. “I sing hard, and I give it everything I have every night, but I really believed I was putting my training to work. After a No. 1 song, an awesome tour with Jason and getting engaged, this is not how I thought I was going to be winding up 2015.”

Farr was set to tour with Curb artist Lee Brice in early 2016 as part of Brice’s Life Off My Years trek. With Farr healing from vocal surgery, Brice has tapped Maddie & TaeClare Dunn, and Jerrod Niemann to join the tour.

“I know what it takes to get out there and really deliver,” Farr continues. “I hate cancelling shows, especially the upcoming tour with my buddy Lee Brice, but I never want to give the fans less than everything… And I know the sooner I let my body heal, the sooner I can get back out there – and the fewer problems I will have in the long run. To me, it’s never about the next few days, but doing the right thing overall, and now I’m under doctor’s orders.”
