Morgan Wallen says he is sorry and that his partying in Alabama was short-sighted. He lost his weekend gig as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live after several TikTok videos surfaced showing him unmasked and partying in crowded bars this past weekend. Morgan, we love you and we hear you.
SNL is currently operating under strict COVID-19 guidelines. I’m a big believer in heartfelt apologies. As someone who has made many big mistakes in life I know the power of forgiveness is life-changing. Morgan is a good guy. We have met him on several occasions and he is just a small-town guy from Sneedville, Tennessee growing up playing “any kind of ball”. A pitching accident forced him to think about other options than sports so he thought he’d give music a try. He appeared on “The Voice” in 2014 and the rest is history. He is a young guy with a lot of success coming his way very quickly. He is human. We all are.
Here is the apology Morgan just posted on Instagram:
