He subsequently cancelled scheduled tour dates, but he is already planning to get back to work this weekend.

Gracin has taken to his Facebook page, writing, “Finally getting back out on the road!! I will be playing this Saturday at the Mercury Ballroom in Louisville KY (Kentucky)! Please get your tickets now! I would love to see you all there for my first show back.”

Gracin, a former U.S. Marine, has also given fans a special treat by sharing videos of himself singing two new songs called “Let Her Go” and “Say Yes” from a recent writing session.
