A video posted by Carly Pearce on social media sees the singer saying that her shows at Tim McGraw‘s “Standing Room Only” tour will “look a bit different” due to the diagnosis about her heart condition.

Pearce said her opening slots on tour will look a bit different than she’d planned due to her recent pericarditis diagnosis.

“I have always been transparent and honest about every part of my life, so I feel this deserves the same honesty,” she said, adding that the doctors discovered the disorder that the Mayo Clinic says can lead to swelling and irritation of the thin tissue around the heart, causing sharp chest pain.

Pearce said she’s been working with her doctors and cardiologist to find a way for her to stay on the road.

“We have all decided that it is in my best interest as I’m healing to alter my shows a little bit,” she said, and asked fans for a “little bit of grace” as she adjusts her performance.

“So if my shows look a little bit different, just know it’s because I have to keep my heart rate under control right now. And the doesn’t mean I’m not going to be completely fine, it just means right now I’ve got to really take this seriously,” she said.

According to the American Heart Association, common symptoms of pericarditis include inflammation-induced chest pain that may feel similar to the pain associated with a heart attack.
