This evening, April 13th, Morgan Wallen posted a handwritten note directly to his fans on his Instagram page. The 4-page note breaks the singer-songwriter’s silence from social media after a video surfaced online of him saying a racial slur out front of his Tennessee home back in February.
After country radio, CMT, and many others made statements that they would no longer be playing his music, Wallen took some time to reflect on mistakes he has made and posted an apology video. Throughout his letter, he thanks his fans for their intense support of his music, which includes making his Dangerous album the top album all-genre for a consecutive 10 weeks in a row. He states how proud he is of this project and explains “I wrote songs that were authentic, & some of them even let you in on my story”.
He explains that he will not be touring this summer, which will include festival dates as well as touring dates with Luke Bryan. He asks his fans to still attend these shows and to support country music. Wallen ended his letter by letting his diehard fans know that his “story is far from over” and promises, “you’ll be seeing me sooner than later.”
