'Chris Daughtry was terrified of going on tours after the pandemic'
Chris Daughtry told Yahoo earlier this year he was 'terrified' of going on tour again after spending so much time at home during the global pandemic. He noted that the lockdown gave him a "brand new perspective on all that my wife has to deal with every single day." "And now I'm terrified to leave again because I don't want her to be stuck with it." Chris also added that "the time at home to cultivate these relationships with my kids and my wife" has been "extremely rewarding."
