Just a few weeks removed from an 11th hour concert cancelation in Mississippi, Morgan Wallen is now pulling the plug on a slew of tour shows under "doctor's orders."
The "Last Night" singer took to Instagram on Tuesday, May 9, to break the "bad news" and apologize to his fans.
"After taking 10 days of vocal rest I performed three shows last weekend in Florida and by the third one I felt terrible," she said.
Following the trio of shows on the One Night at a Time Tour, Morgan got his voice scoped and found out that he re-injured his vocal chords and has "vocal fold trauma." To correct the issue, Morgan was told to go on six weeks of vocal rest. In fact, the country superstar was told to refrain from speaking as much as possible.
In all, 14 shows — from May 18 to June 17 — are being rescheduled. He's also canceled his performance at this week's Academy of Country Music Awards, where he's up for Entertainer of the Year.
"If I do this the right way then I'll get back to 100%, and [doctors] also said if I don't listen and I keep singing I'll permanently damage my voice," he said. "So for the longevity of my career, this is just the choice I had to make. I hate it, but I love you guys."
Morgan's One Night at a Time Tour has not been without its hiccups. On April 23, the controversial singer canceled his Oxford, Miss., show moments before it was set to start, and after the opening acts had already played.
"Ladies and gentlemen, unfortunately, Morgan has lost his voice and is unable to perform tonight. Therefore, tonight's show has been canceled," a message read on the stadium's screens. "Please make your way safely to the stadium exits. Refunds for tonight's event will be available at point of purchase."
The cancelation resulted in one woman filing a lawsuit for the supposed financial pain caused. Another woman said Morgan owed her $3,982 for her troubles. She expected him to pay her via CashApp (among other things, she claims she's owed $629 for a shopping spree at a place called Rebel Rags).
Adding to the confusion, a viral TikTok video showed a security guard from the venue saying the vocal-rest excuse was "bull crap." The unidentified guard alleged that Morgan was "too drunk" to perform, "couldn't walk" and was taken away from the venue by ambulance. The man's employer and Morgan's record label refuted the security guard's allegations.
After the Mississippi situation, Morgan canceled and rescheduled three more shows, saying he was on "doctor-ordered vocal rest."
