Morgan Wallen Will Not Play Concerts This Summer In Order To Better Himself

Following an early 2021 incident that resulted in a host of negative press, Morgan Wallen announced in an Instagram post that he will not perform live this Summer.

“I wanted to let you guys know that I’ve taken a couple months away and feel like I’ve really worked on myself,” Wallen wrote. “I’m proud of the work I’ve put in, and in many ways thankful to have had the time to do it. I’ve needed this time off. I moved to Nashville at 22. I never really gave myself a chance to survey the man I became during that time. I can already see a big difference between 22-year-old me and 27-year-old me. I hope there’s a big difference between the 27-year-old me now and the 32-year-old me one day. I will always strive to be better. Not only has this time revealed to me the ways in which I want to improve, but it’s also reminded me that I am still very proud of who I am and the man I am becoming.”

The country music sensation added: “I’ve found this time away to be very valuable to me in many ways, but I feel like I need a little more of it, and therefore will not be performing tour dates this summer. It means I won’t be playing festivals or the Luke Bryan tour dates. But it’s important to me personally, if you can, still go to these shows — support country music. Country music is back and that’s a beautiful damn thing.”

Not clear about when his hiatus will end, Wallen’s admitted excitement about country music is a telling indication that he wants to get back to normalcy by stating that “you’ll be seeing me sooner than later.”
