Country music superstar Morgan Wallen announced Monday that he is rescheduling a handful of shows due to “doctor-ordered vocal rest.”

Wallen was forced to postpone his show in Oxford, Mississippi, Sunday night at the very last minute due to a vocal health emergency. He started losing his voice during the previous night’s show, and was unable to make it to the stage for Sunday’s show.

Fans absolutely lost their mind at the news and the way Wallen handled the situation, so it looks like he’s getting out ahead of the next slew of cancellations.

“Y’all know how important my fans are to me, so I feel horrible about this news. There’s nothing more I want to do than be on stage playing for you guys. But as of today, I’m on doctor-ordered vocal rest and we have to reschedule this week’s shows,” Wallen wrote in a single story post to his Instagram followers.


Wallen will not be performing in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Moline, Illinois, and Lincoln, Nebraska through April. These shows are postponed to later dates in the year.

“I appreciate and understand everything you do to get to my shows, so it would be unfair of me to put on a show that I know will not be 100%,” Wallen noted. “I’m doing everything I can to speed up the process of getting to that 100% mark.” (RELATED: Fans Lose Their Minds At Morgan Wallen After He Cancels Concert Last Minute)

It’s not the first thing to hit Wallen’s surprise “One Thing At A Time” tour. During his Thursday show in Louisville, Kentucky, Wallen fell hard on the stage while singing his hit single “Heartless.” Video of the fall was shared online, but it appears Wallen recovered so quickly he literally didn’t miss a beat.
