The South Dakota State Fair in Huron is known for bringing some of the biggest acts to headline its Grandstand stage. Powerhouse country music group Lady A was set to perform on Sunday, September 4th. Unfortunately, this highly-anticipated show is canceled along with the remainder of Lady A's Request Line Tour.

The officials of the South Dakota State Fair sent a press release with a statement from Lady A confirming the sad news to fans. So why cancel the rest of the tour? Singer Charles Kelley of Lady A is taking the time to work on himself and his health.

READ: Lady A Postpone Request Line Tour as Charles Kelley Continues Journey to Sobriety

Charles Kelley is beginning a new journey on his path to sobriety. This was not an easy decision to make. However, fellow members Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood say this band is more than music. It's a family.

We are a band, but more importantly…we’re family. We’re proud to say that Charles has embarked on a journey to sobriety. So, right now in order to be the healthiest, strongest and most creative band we can be, Lady A will take the time with the support of our families and team of professionals to walk through this together. It’s early on this road, but we are determined to do what will best set us up for many more years together. We’re grateful for your patience.

Lady A's Request Line Tour will be back on the road in 2023. In the meantime, South Dakota State Fair officials have announced that The Band Perry will replace Lady A on the grandstand stage on Sunday, September 4.
