Hunter Hayes and David Nail each canceled their individual shows this week, "out of respect."
Citing the state of emergency Governor Jay Nixon put into place for the state of Missouri this past Monday, two pop-country singers have canceled two separate shows in the St. Louis area that were planned for this week. First Nashville's Hunter Hayes nixed his Chaifetz Arena show, scheduled for last night -- the announcement was made on Wednesday -- and now David Nail, also of Nashville, has followed suit by canceling his performance scheduled for tonight at Ballpark Village.
