Trea Landon will replace Chris Cagle as the headliner of the 59th Annual Florida Seafood Festival after Cagle cancelled his performance earlier today, festival organizers confirmed.
According to a release from Cagle, his appearance at the Seafood Festival, along with his other upcoming performances, was cancelled “for medical reasons.”
John Soloman, the director of the Franklin County Tourism Development Council, said that festival organizers learned of Cagle’s inability to perform around 10 a.m. on Friday.
Soloman said organizers reached out to their agency, who contacted around 45 Nashville artists.
Landon, a country artist from Georgia who had a scheduled performance in Steinhatchee, agreed to step in.
Landon’s performance is scheduled for the same time as Cagle was set to take the stage — 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 5.
This report will be updated as more information becomes available.
