Morgan Wallen Goes On Vocal Rest After Doctor Discovers Vocal Fold Trauma
In April, Morgan Wallen called off his show at Ole Miss minutes before he was supposed to appear onstage. Fans were already in the venue at the time, and had watched his openers ERNEST and HARDY perform their sets.
Wallen cited vocal issues as the reason for the sudden cancellation. He postponed three additional shows after that.
The “Thought You Should Know” singer went on to perform a string of shows in Florida. But he knew his voice wasn’t 100% at the time.
After those Florida shows, Wallen took to social media to share some bad news. His doctor informed him he had vocal fold trauma, and ordered him to go on strict vocal rest:
“After taking 10 days of vocal rest, I performed three shows last weekend in Florida. By the third one I felt terrible, so I went in and got scoped yesterday,” he said in a video he shared on Instagram on May 9. “They told me that I re-injured my vocal cords and that I have vocal fold trauma. Their advice is that I go on vocal rest for six weeks, so that’s what I’m going to do.”

Wallen canceled all of his upcoming shows after sharing that video. He also canceled his appearances at several festivals and the ACM Awards, which were held on May 11.
Morgan Wallen Shares Update After 4 Weeks On Vocal Rest
Then on Tuesday (June 6), Wallen had some better news to share. After just four weeks on vocal rest, the doctor cleared him to talk and sing again.
He shared the update in a slide on his Instagram Story, saying, “Also, the doc cleared me to talk and sing.. we back.“
Wallen’s next show is scheduled for June 22 at Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois. We’re glad to hear he’s doing better and didn’t have to be on vocal rest for as long as he expected!
