Organizers of the Maritime Country Fest are disappointed to announce that Ronnie Dunn will be cancelling all of his 2014 shows.

Maritime Country Fest  President Joe Keenan said, “When the situation was brought to our Board of Directors, the response from all was, ‘Okay, let’s step it up a notch.’ So, on Wednesday, January 15th our plan is to announce Saturday’s new headliner as well as our additional line-up.”

Keenan also added, “While we wish Mr. Dunn the best during his time off from performing in 2014, Maritime Country Fest remains committed to putting on our most successful event to date. We’re confident that the continued support of our patrons will make this our best concert yet.”

The full statement released by Dunn’s team reads: “After 25 years of recording some of country music’s greatest hits and nonstop touring, Ronnie Dunn has made the tough decision to take a break from the road. He will still continue to record and release new music in the coming year, but as of now all of his scheduled 2014 tour dates will be canceled. We appreciate the interest and support of Mr. Dunn’s fans and look forward to seeing him on the road again in 2015.”

The Maritime Country Fest is to be held at Officers' Square in Fredericton, New Brunswick on June 13th & 14th, 2014.

The 2014 Line up includes Tim Hicks, Doc Walker and Kellie Pickler.
