Thunder on the Mountain fest is off

Sunday, June 14, 2015 – The Thunder on the Mountain festival in Arkansas was slated to be the first appearance at a regular concert setting for Carrie Underwood since she gave birth.

Fans will have to wait a bit longer because the festival announced this weekend it was being cancelled. "Due to circumstances beyond our control, we are unable to hold Thunder on the Mountain. A separate statement will be sent to ticket holders," the festival said on Twitter.

The festival was slated for June 26 - 28 near Ozark, Ark. Zac Brown Band, Big & Rich, Sara Evans and Whiskey Myers were among the other acts slated to play.
