Luke Bryan had to make a difficult decision.

He is postponing his concert on March 12 at the CenturyLink Center in Bossier City, La., until May 18 due to an abnormal amount of rain in the area. The venue made the announcement on its Facebook page on the night of March 10.

In fact, record setting rains have pummeled the deep south with nearly 16 inches of rain through Thursday, March 11, with another few inches anticipated today before it is expected to taper off in the evening. These kinds of rain levels are consistent with that of a tropical storm.

The abundance of rain has forced rivers to swell and flash flooding all across the region, putting the area in a local state of emergency. Five people have been killed due to the severe weather.

The shows postponement means tonight’s show in Little Rock, Ark., will be his last until after the ACM Awards in April. The 2016 ACM Entertainer of the Year is slated to co-host the ACM Awards with Dierks Bentley in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 3.
