Just hours before the 59th Academy of Country Music Awards are set to take place, Sara Evans shared the unfortunate news that she is no longer able to attend the star-studded event. She was set to appear as a presenter at the 2024 Awards show. 

The female songstress penned a somber note to her fans via social media, letting them know that she has been feeling “super sick.” As a result, she is also forced to reschedule her shows in Rocky Mount, VA, which were originally on the books for this upcoming weekend. 

She wrote, “Hey everyone, unfortunately, I have been super sick this week. I was hoping to feel better, but I am not able to make it to the ACM Awards tonight and I have to reschedule my shows in Rocky Mount, VA this weekend. I am sooooo sad and was looking forward to everything.”
