Morgan Wallen returned to the stage Thursday evening after a doctor-ordered leave of absence for vocal rest and is sharing a health update with fans.
The country star shared a post from Florida on her Instagram Story ahead of her first show to speed her fans and apologize again for April’s last-minute delay.
“What’s up guys? I just wanted you to know I We’re putting on a show in Jacksonville tonight and all weekend. “I can’t say I’m 100%, but I’m much better,” said Wallen, 29, in a short video from the venue.
“And I wanted to reiterate to everyone at Oxford how sorry I am for the way things are going. I thought I’d be good to go and I wasn’t,” he admitted. “We’re working on a rescheduled date – we’re very close to having a rescheduled date, I don’t have a firm date yet. So, I’ll let you know as soon as we have it.”
“I’m grateful to all of you and can’t wait to get on stage tonight,” he signed. “I love you all, thanks for the support you always give. God bless you – see you soon.”
Later on Thursday evening, VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena shared a video of Wallen singing his #1 hit “You Proof” on stage.
On April 23, the “Last Night” singer canceled her show in Oxford, Mississippi, minutes before she started performing.
Shortly before the University of Mississippi’s second night at Vaught Hemingway Stadium, video boards inside the venue displayed a disappointing message.
The message read, “Ladies and gentlemen, unfortunately Morgan has lost his voice and will not be able to perform tonight. As a result, tonight’s show has been cancelled.” “Please make your way to the stadium exits safely. Refunds for tonight’s event will be made at the point of purchase.”
At the time of the announcement, several thousand fans had already gathered inside the stadium, and some share images From the event on social media as they expected the country star.
The next night, Wallen announced that the three remaining shows that week in Michigan, Illinois, and Nebraska would be postponed to address health issues.
“You know how much my fans mean to me, so I feel bad about this news,” she wrote in a statement she shared on her Instagram Story. “There’s nothing I want to do for you guys but be on stage for you guys. But as of today, I’m on audiotape on doctor’s advice and we need to reschedule this week’s shows.”
Wallen continued, “I appreciate and understand everything you’ve done to come to my shows, so it would be unfair for me to stage a show that I know won’t be 100%. I’m doing everything I can to speed up the process. To reach that 100% mark.”
Three shows have been postponed to June 27, September 8 and September 9. “All original tickets for the new dates will be honored,” said Wallen.

After the artist canceled his second show at the University of Mississippi’s Vaught Hemingway Stadium, a security guard from the venue was caught saying that Wallen was too drunk to perform. But since then, the security company itself and the country star’s team have closed the allegations.
After the video went viral, BEST Crowd Management shared a post on their Instagram Stories and denied the guard’s claim. “A hired employee of BEST Crowd Management made false allegations regarding the Morgan Wallen concert last night, and we do not stand by the details in his statement,” the post said.
Seth England, CEO of Wallen’s record label Big Loud Records, later thanked the company by sharing the statement on his Instagram Story. “Thanks to @bestcrowdmanagement for correcting your employee who created an entire story that wasn’t true. Every detail was wrong,” he reportedly wrote.
“It’s ridiculous what some people have to say for backlash,” England continued.
