Colter Wall just set off a good alarm.

Trying to find your way around the live music room despite the COVID era has been harrowing enough with all the constant cancellations and postponements as waves come and go and local officials and venues are doing their best to handle the situation.

But one of the things that many ticket holders liked the most is the way some promoters, festivals, artists, and venues have withheld the money on originally purchased tickets for well over a year at one point, rather than full refunds on shows offer that may or may not be postponed in the distant future.

Hey, we understand that venues, promoters, and artists have also been hosed down from this ordeal and sometimes had to keep that money to stay afloat. But also financially, many patrons are in a quandary.

Colter Wall was one of those guys who wasn't really trying to figure out how to get back to shows during the height of the pandemic. He was perfectly happy just sitting it out and tending cattle on ranches in Canada and Texas. But when he decided to come back, he decided to come back hard by announcing a big round of new dates for fall 2021. But when Delta started rising and the venues started needing vaccines, Colter just said, fuck it, I'm going to ride horses again instead of potentially putting people at risk or asking fans to handle mandates they might not want , and the tour is expected to be postponed to 2022.

Of course, most Colter Wall fans would have preferred to see the tour go on and have the opportunity to see him live, but it's hard to blame Colter for his decision.

On Tuesday, May 10th, Colter Wall did what few artists / venues / festivals have done in the last year, namely canceling the shows so that funds can be officially returned to fans.

The Colter Wall team said in a statement:

You work hard for what you have. It's something we all have in common. With the team moving the dates for September, October, and November 2021 to Fall 2022, it just didn't suit us that your salary was withheld for another year while you waited for new dates. Because of this, we canceled the shows so that the refund process could begin. These ticket refunds are available at the point of purchase. We appreciate each of you who bought a ticket and hope that in due time you will buy a ticket for the next show.

It may seem like a small gesture, but it shows that Colter Wall is focused on the big picture. It's pretty clear that he doesn't like this for the money or the fame. Singing old cowboy songs doesn't get you rich. But his openness and down-to-earthness made him a highly valued actor.

Colter Wall also said he had new videos and songs on the way, so stay tuned.
