Although 2021 marked a return to the road for most country and Americana artists, it wasn't a completely smooth journey. Venues and artists scrambled to put vaccination and testing requirements into effect to help protect the safety of concertgoers and performers. Due to the spread of the Delta variant in mid-2021, many concert dates and full tours were postponed or cancelled throughout the year. However, as vaccination rates increase globally, the music industry continues to make strides towards keeping live music alive and well.

With the recent discovery of the Omicron variant, many artists have been forced to cancel overseas tours scheduled for 2022 due to border closings. It's unclear what the future will hold in regards to coronavirus' effect on artists' touring plans for the coming year, but we'll keep you posted on any changes as they happen.

The Boot will keep this list updated with changes and new tours as they're announced.
