Morgan Wallen Says He Will Sit Out Summer Concerts


Morgan Wallen posted a four page letter on his social media stating what the singer has been up to since he was banned everywhere for using a racial slur in February, and what his plans are for the rest of 2021 – including his concert and festival appearances.

He starts off by ‘thanking fans’ for the success of Dangerous, and states that his record 10 weeks at #1 wasn’t what he was aiming for, but the response from his fans has meant so much to him.

The letter does not talk about the recent billboards that have popped up in Nashville this week, just days ahead of the ACM Awards on Sunday, April 18. The billboards show support for Wallen, in what has been reported as paid for by his fans. Along, with country radio and cable networks, Wallen was banned from the ACM’s completely.

He then goes in to how he has been working on himself and that his time away has been very valuable to him, and that he feels like he needs more of it. That means he will miss the summer concert and festival season – including supporting the Luke Bryan tour and his appearance at The Country Fest in June.

Wallen does tell fans to ‘still go to these shows – support country music.’ He adds that ‘country music is back & that’s a beautiful thing.

No statement from Wallen’s record label or from any of his PR teams or management. For now we will follow this closely and wait for official announcements about his rescheduled or cancelled concert dates.
