Morgan Wallen Releases First Statement In Over 2 Months, Cancels All Summer Shows
By now, we all already know about the leaked video from TMZ that sparked a lot of controversy for Morgan Wallen months back, including him being suspended from his record label and pulled from major radio stations and playlists.
Days after that video surfaced and shocked the country music community, Morgan released an apology video on youtube but has since been inactive altogether.
Today, Morgan published a hand-written letter on his twitter account that first and foremost thanked his fans for making his latest album the first ever country record to spend it's first 10 weeks at No. 1 all genre on billboard.
"I would have been proud of this album had it not done any of those things, but it did. I'm so aware that it was you all who have bought it and played it as much as you have, so I truly feel I share this honor with you."
As he continues to write, he puts "I am still very proud of who I am" in all bold by going over the words multiple times with his pen. He then shares his time away has been very "valuable" for him and that he will continue to step away from the spotlight by canceling all shows this summer, including opening for Luke Bryan and the multiple festivals his name was a headliner on.
Pretty disappointing news for fans but I wouldn't necessarily say it's a bad move. As much negative press as Morgan has received since the "incident," his fans have stuck by his side, including me.
