In a press statement, Garth explained: "We’ve had this discussion. I don’t want to be the guy that tries to do something in the midst where everybody is hurtin’.

"It’s like... damn it. The album’s ready to go. It’s just how do you get out and promote and be happy and jolly while everybody’s out there fighting for their lives."
