Morgan Wallen is now set to appear in court for legal proceedings at a later date.

On April 7, Morgan Wallen was arrested at Chief’s, Eric Church’s Nashville bar, for allegedly tossing a chair from the sixth-story rooftop. The country artist is confronting three felony charges linked to the occurrence.

Surveillance video captured Wallen “lunging and throwing an object over the roof,” nearly hitting two police officers. Bystanders also captured a video of Morgan Wallen’s arrest.

During Chief’s opening weekend, they appeared to embrace the situation by modifying the bar’s marquee sign to reference Wallen’s widely publicized arrest with the message:

“Our Pigs Fly, Our Chairs Don’t.”

Two weeks following his arrest, Wallen ended his silence by releasing a two-part statement on X.

The Grammy-nominated artist is now scheduled to appear in court on August 15.

The “Sand In My Boots” singer did not attend his initially scheduled court appearance on May 3. Instead, his attorney, Worrick Robinson, represented him, as his presence was not necessary to advance the case.

“This is obviously a very complicated case, and it’s not going to resolve itself without subpoenas and witnesses. Morgan will be there on Aug. 15,” Robinson revealed Friday morning (May 3).

In August, when Wallen, facing three felony charges, attends court, several scenarios could unfold, each with significant implications.

Fact-Finding Hearing: Davidson County prosecutors might summon witnesses to present evidence related to the case.

Potential Settlement: Alternatively, the involved parties may opt for a settlement instead of pursuing a trial.

Case Continuance: Depending on the court’s schedule, there is a possibility that the case could be postponed to a later date.

When questioned about Robinson’s preference to resolve the case without a trial, he stated that he was ready to consider all possibilities.

“I think everybody generally wins if you can resolve it in a manner that everybody can live with.”

Additionally, Robinson expressed optimism that this experience will serve as a valuable learning opportunity for Wallen.

“Sometimes you have to go through things for your own to learn lessons in life, and I think that’s applicable to Morgan Wallen, my son, and everybody else’s kids,” he shared.

As Morgan Wallen’s court date approaches on August 15, his legal team is preparing for various potential outcomes. Stay tuned for further updates.
