Nearly ten weeks after leaving the spotlight due to racial slurs controversy, Morgan Wallen took to social media today, April 13th, to release a personal letter to his fans.
Morgan Wallen has had a tumultuous year. He released his record Dangerous: The Double Album early this year, but unfortunately was dropped from radio and suspended by his label over the use of a racial slur, which was captured on video. Despite that, his record spent ten consecutive weeks at the top of the all-genre charts, shattering previous records for country artists.
Today, Wallen broke his silence, sharing a handwritten four-page letter to fans on his social media platforms. The singer-songwriter thanked fans for their dedication and their love, sharing “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.”
Despite being appreciative of his fans, Wallen shared that he still has some learning and growing to do. He declared that he will not be performing at any festivals or tours this summer. He still encourages fans to support country music and go to all these shows.
Ending the letter, Wallen shares an uplifting sentiment, “My story is far from over and getting back out to see ya’ll is all I can think about. So just know you’ll be seeing me sooner than later.”
