Could mental health or voice problems be the reason Colter isn't playing his show?

A segment of Colter's fan base speculates that the abrupt alteration in the tour schedule might be linked to the artist's voice. Colter has been known for his distinct deep voice, a defining characteristic of his unique sound. Changes in vocal style and tone have been observed by fans over the years, prompting speculation about potential voice-related issues.

In recent years, there has been a growing awareness of mental health challenges, and Colter has spoken out before about his battles with depression — especially after his album "Little Songs" came out.

The demanding nature of touring and the pressures of the music industry can take a toll on artists, and Colter's decision might be a reflection of a broader conversation. Fans are wondering if Colter's decision to postpone the show could be connected.
