JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI: Country music artist Morgan Wallen left his fans disappointed when he abruptly canceled his Sunday night show in Mississippi on April 23. According to reports, thousands of fans were already in the arena when the announcement was made on the video boards inside the venue. The message read, "Ladies and gentlemen, unfortunately, Morgan has lost his voice and is unable to perform tonight. Therefore, tonight's show has been canceled." It continued, "Please make your way safely to the stadium exits. Refunds for tonight's event will be available at the point of purchase."

According to The Tennessean, HARDY, ERNST, and Nate Smith played the opening acts, and many fans came 3 hours early and waited patiently for their country star to entertain. Wallen apologized to his fans via an Instagram story, stating that he had lost his voice and could not perform at the 'One Night At a Time World Tour.' The 29-year-old 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 stage time, but my voice is shot and I'm unable to sing." He concluded, "All tickets will be refunded at the point of purchase. I am so sorry, I promise you guys I tried everything I could."

'This record represents the last few years of my life'

The current tour is named after Wallen’s third studio LP, 'One Thing at a Time,' which features 36 songs, including 'Last Night' and 'Thinkin’ Bout Me' released last month. "This record represents the last few years of my life, the highs, and the lows. It also brings together the musical influences that have shaped me as an artist – country, alternative, and hip-hop," Wallen said in a January press release, according to People.

Next show is scheduled at Grand Rapids, MS, Thursday, April 27

The press release also stated, "There are 36 songs on this album because we just kept exploring with fresh lyrics, music, and production ideas and these are the songs that felt right to me. It was a blast to create, and I was so grateful to be back in the studio to lay this out for my fans." Wallen's upcoming tour dates include a performance on Thursday, April 27 in Grand Rapids, MS, and will continue throughout the summer and fall.
