– Cody Johnson was ordered by his doctor to go on vocal rest for three weeks, the singer said today on social media.
Johnson had come off shows in Fort Worth, Texas and Oklahoma City, Okla. Johnson did not say exactly what caused him to go on vocal rest.
"Coming off of the road after an incredible weekend to some not so exciting news. Unfortunately, my ENT Dr. of over 8 years has put me on vocal rest for the next three weeks. God willing, this will be an isolated incident, and as of right now, there is no concern about long-term damage. However, I would appreciate y'all keeping me in your prayers for a safe and speedy recovery. I can't wait to get back out there doing what I love. Thank you for understanding during this difficult time."
Johnson has been working on a double album set to release later this year. Earlier this month, he released "'Til You Can't" and "Longer Than She Did" from the 18-song release.
