Morgan Wallen Postpones Tour Dates, Placed On Vocal Rest

Morgan Wallen is being forced to cancel the remainder of the April shows on his One Night At A Time World Tour. After abruptly canceling his performance at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium on Saturday night in Oxford, Mississippi, mere minutes before he was to take the stage due to vocal problems, the 29-year-old reveals he is under vocal rest, per doctor’s orders.

“Y’all know how important my fan are to me, so I feel horrible about this news,” Wallen said in a statement shared on his Instagram Stories. ”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 will not be 100%. I’m doing everything I can to speed up the process of getting to that 100% mark.”


The statement adds that his Grand Rapids, Michigan show will now take place on June 27, while his Moline, Illinois show will take place on September 8, and his Lincoln, Nebraska show will take place on September 9.

Fans had already gathered in Mississippi for Wallen’s show when the news was announced that he would not be performing as scheduled.

“After last night’s show I started losing my voice so I spent the day resting up, talking to my doctor and working through my vocal exercises trying to get better,” Wallen said at the time. ”I really thought I’d be able to take the stage and it kills me to deliver this so close to showtime, but my voice is shot and I am unable to sing.”

The disappointing news comes at an otherwise promising time in Wallen’s career. The Tennessee native just celebrated another No. 1 hit with “Thought You Should Know.” He currently has two songs in the Top 15, with both “One Thing At A Time” and “Last Night.” He is also nominated for four  ACM Awards, including for Male Artist of the Year, Song of the Year (for “Sand in My Boots”), Artist-Songwriter of the Year, and the night’s highest honor, Entertainer of the Year.

Wallen is joined on his One Night At A Time World Tour by ERNEST and Bailey Zimmerman for all dates while HARDY and Parker McCollum will join for select dates as well.

“I’ve had so many people ask me if I wanted to take some time off; but the truth is – I have been writing and making so much music in my off-time because I feel as inspired as I ever have,” Wallen said when announcing the tour. “It feels like new songs are pouring out of me, and I love that feeling. We are going to run it back next year with the One Night At A Time World Tour. Bigger venues. New countries. Bigger memories. See y’all there.”

Wallen’s next scheduled show is on May 4 in Jacksonville, Florida. Keep track of tour updates at
