After previously postponing or canceling gigs through July 30, the country band has nixed shows through mid-August.

Westbrook underwent surgery last month to remove a polyp on his vocal cords. The country band checked in with fans Sunday with a video posted on its Facebook page. All of the band members addressed fans, except for Westbrook, who wore a piece of tape across his mouth and an iPad hanging around his neck with “Sorry!!” written on it.

The band posted the following statement on Facebook Monday morning:            

“It is with deep regret that we must cancel an additional three weeks of shows in August due to doctors orders for Jimi to rest and recuperate his voice. We want to come back on the road to you guys at 110% and this additional time will make sure that happens! Thanks again for all of your support during this time, and for your love, patience, and excitement for us to come back! We can’t wait to see all of you.”

Little Big Town is set to return to the stage Aug. 22 with an appearance at Eastbound Hoedown Summer Music Festival in Avondale, Newfoundland and Labrador. Visit for more information.
