Morgan Wallen Reveals Health Crisis Following Concert Cancelation Drama

Morgan Wallen has already been going through a lot lately, and now he has a bittersweet announcement for his fans.

The country singer took to Instagram to announce in a video that he has to take six weeks of vocal rest due to injured vocal cords.

He said, "I'm just gonna go ahead and get straight to it. I got some bad news from my doctors at the Vanderbilt Voice Center yesterday. After taking 10 days of vocal rest, I performed three shows last weekend in Florida, and by the third one, I felt terrible. So I went in and got scoped yesterday, and they told me that I re-injured my vocal cords and that I have vocal fold trauma."

"Their advice is that I go on vocal rest for six weeks, so that's what I'm gonna do. They want me not to talk at all, but they said if I need to, it's okay, for something like this," Wallen went on.

The 29-year-old also revealed that he tore his lat, a muscle in the back, while he was performing in Australia. He noted, "I've been trying to work through that quietly, but this time off is gonna help me get that back right as well."

Regarding his upcoming concert dates, Wallen said that almost everything is rescheduled, but because a few are pending, he will update fans with that information soon.

Wallen continued, "I won't be able to make these festivals that I have during this timeframe, but we are going to make those right in [the] next year." He also mentioned missing the ACM Awards, which are set to take place on May 11.

Although this is definitely sad news for Wallen and his fans, he emphasized the necessity of the vocal rest, and said, "[The doctors] told me that if I do this the right way, that I'll get back to 100%. And they also said that if I don't listen and I keep singing, then I'll permanently damage my voice."

"So for the longevity of my career, this is just the choice I had to make. I hate it, but I love you guys and I appreciate all the support that you always give me. I'll see you soon, and I'll be back better than ever," he concluded, sharing his love for the fans and promising to recover and return soon.

Many fans shared their well-wishes in the comments on Instagram, telling Wallen to take the time he needs to heal and thanking him for addressing everything that's going on.

Wallen canceled shows in April last minute after losing his voice, which didn't sit well with some fans including one who filed a class action suit, noting in court documents that though the venue promised a refund, it had yet to be issued
