McGraw was slated to play the Southern California’s Shoreline Amphitheatre and Verizon Wireless Amphitheater on Friday and Saturday, though his doctor ordered to him cancel the dates and be placed on vocal rest.
"This is so disappointing to me. We've had such a great summer, and I was looking forward to this final weekend with the fans in California,” McGraw said in a Facebook post Friday. "I appreciate the support and look forward to coming back soon. The word 'can't' is just not in my DNA. If there was any way I could sing, I would do it."
The “Shotgun Rider” Tour ran over 37 dates and began its North American trek back in June. McGraw is still scheduled to play the Route 91 Festival in Las Vegas on October 4.
