GARTH BROOKS PRAISES MORGAN WALLEN AFTER ACM WIN
Country music fans were left outraged after Garth Brooks praised Morgan Wallen following his win for Male Artist of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards. Morgan Wallen beat out other popular country artists such as Kane Brown, Luke Combs, Jordan Davis, and Chris Stapleton for the award. However, some fans were questioning why Garth Brooks praised him so highly despite Morgan’s controversial past.
Just days before the awards, Morgan revealed that he was placed on six weeks of doctor-mandated vocal rest after pushing himself too far, which also put a halt on his current stadium tour. Apparently, if he doesn’t put himself on vocal rest, he could permanently damage his singing voice. Country music fans on Twitter were furious that Morgan won and even more angry that Garth publically praised the singer.
MORGAN WALLEN’S CONTROVERSIAL PAST
Morgan Wallen is a country singer and songwriter who gained media attention as one of the competitors in the sixth season of The Voice. As a result of his stellar performances, he has won many awards such as one Country Music Association Award, one iHeartRadio Music Award, three Billboard Music Awards, and one Academy of Country Music Award. However, in 2021, a video surfaced of Morgan dropping a racial slur after spending a night out with his friend. Soon after, his music was pulled from the radio, he was suspended by his record label, and he was banned from the American Music Awards.
Morgan was recently placed on a six-week vocal rest, and he was forced to cancel the next six weeks of his public appearances – including his ACM Awards performance. In a statement, Morgan said he has « vocal fold trauma » that requires extreme vocal rest. When his vocal rest and the cancelation of his tour were announced, he was already 20 minutes late to his concert at The University of Mississippi. A fan in attendance at the Mississippi concert soon filed a federal lawsuit against Wallen for breach of contract and negligence.
