Fall tour includes stops throughout the southeast
Morgan Wallen has announced a four city fall 2021 headlining tour. The singer announced the news via his fan club text list early Monday (Sept 20th) morning. Tickets are on sale now via Wallen’s website.
The first concert is scheduled for October 23rd at the Auburn Rodeo in Auburn, Alabama with Parker McCollum, Jon Langston and Trey Lewis. The second one follows a week later on October 30th at Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tennessee with Granger Smith and his alter-ego Earl Dibbles Jr., Larry Fleet, Jon Langston and Ernest.
November 6th sees Wallen playing Coosa Valley Fairgrounds in Rome, Georgia with Hardy and Ernest. The final date is November 12th at The Grounds in Mobile, Alabama with Hardy, Ernest and Ashland Craft.
Earlier this month, Wallen raised more than $725k for The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee and the Tennessee Emergency Response Fund, to immediately assist victims of the recent severe storms and flooding in Humphreys County and other parts of Middle Tennessee. His sold out Morgan Wallen and Friends acoustic benefit concert at Nashville’s Marathon Music Works featured Hardy, Dierks Bentley, Cole Swindell, Lainey Wilson, Ernest, Ben Burgess, Lathan Warlick, and Jared Mullins with surprise guest Breland.
Over the summer, Wallen launched the More Than My Hometown Foundation, named after his fourth consecutive No. 1 single. The foundation was formed to help children, adolescents and teenagers find families that can provide warm, loving homes that can rebuild their confidence, self-belief, and to feel forever loved, with a forever family.
Wallen has largely been inactive in the industry since the video of him using a racial slur was published by TMZ a few days after his record breaking sophomore Dangerous: The Double Album was released earlier this year. He was immediately blacklisted by the industry, but his music surged 500% with the album spending its first ten consecutive weeks atop of the Billboard 200 chart, breaking a 34 year old record.
In July, Wallen gave ABC’s Good Morning America (GMA) his first interview since the controversy. He spoke with Michael Strahan who addressed his looseness of using the word in which Wallen called “playful” but “ignorant.”
His music has resurfaced across radio airwaves as his new single, “Sand In My Boots,” is currently rising the country charts.
