Welp, Morgan Wallen is gonna be on the shelf for a minute.

The country music star has faced a ton of backlash after abruptly canceling his concert last night in Oxford, Mississippi, just minutes before he was set to perform.

Wallen was just about to go on stage last night, and even had his opening acts Hardy and Ernest perform, before this message popped up on the stadium’s screens:

“Ladies and Gentlemen, unfortunately Morgan has lost his voice and is unable to perform tonight.

Therefore tonight’s show has been cancelled. Please make your way safely to the stadium exits.

Refunds for tonight’s event will be available at point of purchase.”

Fans were understandably upset that the performance was canceled so close to showtime, with many driving long distances, taking PTO, getting hotels, hiring baby-sitters, and for those who bought resale tickets, they might not even get a refund.

But now, it appears as though Morgan Wallen is going to be rescheduling a few more shows… this time, with a little more notice. Only 11 stops into his global 7-month tour and has now been reportedly put on vocal rest by his doctor.

Wallen took to his Instagram story to make the announcement about rescheduled tour dates after being put on vocal rest:

“Y’all know how important my fans are to me, so I feel horrible about this news. There’s nothing more I want to do than be on stage playing for you guys.

But as of today, I’m on doctor-ordered vocal rest and we have to reschedule this week’s shows.

I appreciate and understand everything you do to get to my shows, so it would be unfair of me to put on a show that I know I will not be 100%.

I’m doing everything I can to speed up the process of getting to that 100% mark.”

The rest of the Instagram story revealed the new dates for the shows that were scheduled for Michigan, Illinois, and Nebraska for this week:

– Grand Rapids, MI- June 27th

– Moline, IL- September 8th

– Lincoln, NE- September 9th

As of right now, Wallen has not rescheduled the Oxford, Mississippi show at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

The post also went on to reiterate that all original tickets would be honored for the rescheduled dates and that any questions about refunds should be taken up with the ticket’s point of purchase.

Morgan Wallen Makes Billboard Chart History

Morgan Wallen just keeps setting records.

After releasing his latest album, One Thing At a Time, Morgan broke the record for the most songs on the Billboard Hot 100 chart by a single artist, with all 36 tracks making the chart.

The album also set the record for the largest streaming week in history for any country album, and was the most-streamed country album in a single day by a male country artist in Spotify history.

And now, he’s done something that’s never been done in the history of the Billboard Country Airplay chart: Earn three spots inside the top 10.

For this week’s chart, “Thought You Should Know” holds the #7 spot, “Last Night” is at #8 and “One Thing At a Time” is right below it at #9.

It’s the first time an artist has had three songs in the top 10 of the chart since it launched in January of 1990.

Looks like Morgan’s dominant run isn’t slowing down any time soon.
