Morgan Wallen is leaving music after a weekend scandal where he partied too hard and flouted social distancing rules.
The Redneck Love Song singer announced via social media that the break won’t be forever. Instead he intends to take this time to learn from his mistakes and grow as a person.
“I think I have some growing up to do. You know, I think I’ve lost myself a little bit. I’ve tried to find joy in the wrong places, and, I don’t know, it’s left me with less joy. So I’m going to go try to work on that. I’m gonna take a step back from the spotlight for a little while and go work on myself.” Said Wallen.
Wallen was booked to perform on Saturday Night Live on Saturday, October 10 but has since been removed from the show.
“My actions this past weekend were pretty short-sighted, and they have obviously affected my long-term goals and my dreams,” Wallen says in his two-and-a-half-minute Instagram video. “I respect the show’s decision, because I know that I put them in jeopardy, and I take ownership for this. I’d like to apologize to SNL, to my fans, to my team for bringing me these opportunities, and I Iet them down.” Said Wallen.
