Rhett said if he hadn’t broken curfew he would have waited out bad weather and performed a concert late at night, however, the storm will be in the area all night.
“Even though I would stay up until 1 a.m. to do this, the curfew in this town is 11:30 a.m. and everyone I’ve spoken to says the weather isn’t going to clear up from here. there.” Rhett continued. “So it sucks because I’ve literally been hosed down twice in my career, tonight being the second time.”

He then revealed the new tour date with fans planning to return to Tuscaloosa for his Bring The Bar To You tour when he returns to Tuscaloosa Amphitheater.
“We have already found a new date to come back, September 8th,” added Rhett. “Obviously many of you have traveled here from other states and I just feel for you. I’m so sorry, but it’s an act of God and lightning is something we don’t play with. and we want to make sure you are all safe.

“So yeah on September 8th we’re coming back to Tuscaloosa and obviously if a lot of you can’t make it please contact your outlet for a refund and all that good jazz but hope to see you all again September 8,” Rhett said, before further apologizing to fans. “Again, so creepy, sorry. I hate that. I’m literally on the bus ready to play. Sometimes that’s how it works, so I love you all. Thank you very much for coming tonight.
He then promised fans that when he returns on September 8, he and his band will “put on a hell of a dag show.”
Rhett did everything in his power to try to continue the concert before the cancellation. Hours before the original show time, Rhett revealed plans to start early due to the upcoming weather.
