What a bummer for fans, it was announced yesterday on the Blake Shelton Cruise Facebook that due to a scheduling conflict Justin Moore has had to pull out of this October's Blake Shelton Cruise.
Hi all! Wanted to update you on Justin Moore. His management recently informed us that a scheduling conflict has arisen and unfortunately he will not be able to join us on the cruise this year. However, we have 24 amazing performers on board and this will be a cruise you will not forget. Never been a county music cruise like it before. I know many will miss Justin Moore, but trust us, there will be so much fantastic music you won't be disappointed.
It actually appears that Justin had a heckuva lot of scheduling conflict. Looking at the Ticketmaster website, Justin has four different tour stops scheduled with Eric Church's The Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour that week.
Anyway, still scheduled to appear on the cruise are: Blake Shelton, Trace Adkins, Jerrod Niemann, Easton Corbin, Lee Brice, Neal McCoy, Randy Houser, Frankie Ballard, Brett Eldredge, Jana Kramer, Tyler Farr, Chuck Wicks, Logan Mize, Brinley Addington, Chris Cavanaugh, JJ Lawhorn, Brandon & Leah, McKenna Faith. Johanna Smith, Her & King’s County, RaeLynn from The Voice, Clayton Anderson, Maggie Rose, and sister act Nick and Sam.
That said, that also brings me to a tough announcement -- for me, not necessarily you guys -- I've also had to pull out of the cruise. I was so excited when I was given the chance to take part in the cruise and to set sail with all these awesome artists, but things change and I've had to make gut-wrenching (seriously, my gut is wrenched) decision not to go.
Unfortunately, the government found out I was a world renowned international spy and I was refused a legal passport....or something like that.
Anyway, all is not lost. I'm told that there may possibly be a spot for me on a future cruise of the same caliber so fingers crossed.
