It seems like Clare Dunn has just gotten started in the country music mainstream, earning more time in the spotlight every day and preparing for the release of her debut major label EP, but unfortunately she already has to take a break.

The artist announced this week that three upcoming shows will be postponed due to a recommended vocal rest as a precautionary measure before launching into a “hectic fall schedule,” according to the statement on her website.

“I already know I have the best fans in the world, which is why it breaks my heart that I won’t be able to celebrate the release of my brand new EP and to kick off the Heartland Tour with you guys in person,” shares Dunn, “but I’ll be back soon and will absolutely make it up to each and every one of you!"

Performances in Gillette, Wyo., Oklahoma City, Okla., and Lamar Colo., (the opening date on the Heartland Tour) will all be postponed, and fans who have already purchased tickets will be refunded. Rescheduled dates have not yet been announced.

Dunn is on the brink of releasing her self-titled, five-song EP this Friday (Sept. 18), which includes the single “Move On.” The track is climbing the U.S. Country Airplay chart, where it is currently No. 50. Dunn will join Miranda Lambert’s Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour this fall, as well as Chris Young’s I’m Comin’ Over Tour, which begins in October.
