The Buckle Up weekend event had been due to take place in Cincinnati on 5 and 6 August (16), when fellow performers Tyler Farr, Chase Rice, and Jessie James Decker, among others, were booked to take the stage.

However, organisers at PromoWest announced on Monday (25Jul16) the show will no longer be going ahead.

A statement released by officials on Twitter reads: "Due to circumstances beyond our control, PromoWest Productions is regretfully announcing the cancelation of the 2016 Buckle Up Country Music Festival set to take place in Blue Ash, Ohio August 5 & 6. All tickets purchased will be automatically refunded via Ticketmaster."

The event was launched in 2014, with artists including Willie Nelson, The Band Perry, and Emmylou Harris, but it did not return in 2015. Buckle Up had been expected to make a big comeback this summer (16).
