“It’s been a tough day today, ” Zac Brown started his 3-minute video on Instagram. Visibly teary-eyed, the man reveals that he had to let go 90% of his family, people who have been working with him for the tours because he can’t generate as no tours are allowed.
Afterwards, he immediately called out to the people who are still out there partying and going to the beaches. While they might not care to get in themselves, they could possibly be carrying it to their elderly at home and complicate their lives or even kill them.
“The longer that America doesn’t take this seriously and doesn’t stay in and try to contain this, the longer that everyone’s gonna be out of jobs, the longer that we’re gonna be pushed into this recession that we’re all about to enter into,” says the country singer.
He also adds that the government may have been too slow in taking the actions and warning the citizens, saying, “I’m pretty ashamed of the way our leadership’s handled all of this. I’m pretty ashamed of a lot of things. We can’t rely on our government to tell people what they need to do.”
“We have to decide for ourselves as Americans and we have to look out for the future of all of our jobs and for the economy and for each other.”
Zac Brown’s “The Owl Tour” that was set to happen this Spring is postponed and the rescheduled date will be announced in the future. But their summer “Roar With the Lions” tour is set to perform as planned. Refund is available for those who wish to.
Until the day we get through this together!
This is just one of the huge number of concerts, tours, and gatherings that have been cancelled this month.
