Just minutes before Morgan Wallen was slated to take the stage in Oxford, Mississippi on Sunday night, he issued a statement letting fans know that the show was unfortunately canceled.
Taking to his Instagram stories, the country star explained that the abrupt news is due to him losing his voice.
He wrote, “After last night’s show I started losing my voice so I spent the day resting up, talking to my doctor and working through my vocal exercises trying to get better. I really thought I’d be able to take the stage and it kills me to deliver this so close to showtime, but my voice is shot and I am unable to sing.”
“All tickets will be refunded at point of purchase. I am so sorry, I promise you guys I tried everything I could,” Wallen concluded in his statement to fans.
HARDY, Ernest & Nate Smith served as support for the show and were able to perform at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium prior to Wallen’s set time.
One Night At A Time World Tour
Morgan Wallen is currently on the road for the U.S. leg of his massive One Night At A Time World Tour, which kicked off with two back-to-back sold-out shows at Milwaukee’s MLB American Family Field.
On Friday, April 14, the country music superstar stepped on the stage of a stadium for the second time in his career. This time around, he set the attendance record with 39,609 fans packing the stands on night one. In total, these performances reached 85,313 attendees and marked the first of 58 shows in North America this year.
For opening night, Wallen played a 26-song set list that lasted about two hours and spanned his entire catalog. Throughout the night, he played a total of 13 tracks from this successful collection including his two No. 1 hits, “You Proof” and “Thought You Should Know,” as well as “I Wrote The Book,” “One Thing At A Time,” “Ain’t That Some,” “Keith Whitley,” “Sunrise,” “Everything I Love,” “Dying Man,” “Devil Don’t Know,” “Thinkin’ Bout Me,” “Whiskey Friends,” and his first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 all-genre chart, “Last Night.”
The run launched overseas March 15-25 with shows in New Zealand and Australia. The recent ACM Entertainer of the Year nominee will visit a total of 30 stadiums, and hit four countries and two continents on the 63-show trek including New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, Chicago’s Wrigley Field and Boston’s Fenway Park. The tour will return overseas this fall with stops in Canada before heading to The O2 in London on Dec. 3.
Wallen’s One Night At A Time World Tour is produced by Live Nation in North America/United Kingdom and Frontier Touring for Australia/New Zealand.
Additionally, Morgan Wallen will also perform at several festivals this summer such as Gulf Coast Jam, Carolina Country Music Fest, We Fest, Big Valley Jamboree, YQM Country Fest, and more.
In an effort to give back to those in need, Wallen will donate $3 of every ticket sold on the U.S. dates to the More Than My Hometown Foundation. Established in 2021, the foundation benefits causes near and dear to the superstar’s heart, including organizations such as Greater Good Music, Children Are People, the Salvation Army, and the National Museum of African American Music.
The tour comes in support of Wallen’s third studio album, One Thing At A Time, which arrived on March 3.
The country hitmaker isn’t just breaking records with his current tour, but also with his latest project. The collection, which features 36 tracks, including duets with Eric Church, HARDY and ERNEST, remains at the top of the Billboard Artist 100 all-genre chart and the Billboard 200 chart, where it has stayed for five consecutive weeks and counting.
This feat makes Wallen the only core country artist to simultaneously rule the Artist 100, Hot 100 & Billboard 200 charts.
Pending the status of his voice, Morgan Wallen is next scheduled to appear in Grand Rapids, MI at Van Andel Arena on April 27.

Fittingly recorded on Valentine’s Day, “King of Country Music” serves as a romantic tribute to Parker’s other half for sticking around through every point of his musical journey. “My name on a […]
