Ole Miss ‘monitoring’ Morgan Wallen arrest as country music star is still scheduled for April 20

Could the recent arrest of Morgan Wallen put the country music star’s upcoming Oxford concert in jeopardy? That’s what a lot of Mississippians are asking.

Wallen was arrested at Chief’s Bar in Nashville, Tenn., on Sunday night after allegedly throwing a chair from the sixth floor of the downtown establishment. Metro Nashville Police reported two of its officers were standing within feet of where the chair landed, and after reviewing video footage, they took the “Whiskey Glasses” singer into custody and charged him.

“At 10:53 [p.m.] Sunday evening, Morgan Wallen was arrested in downtown Nashville for reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct. He is cooperating fully with authorities,” a scarce statement from Wallen’s attorney, Worrick Robinson, reads.

Wallen was booked on a $15,250 bond as fans await to see if the country music star’s latest controversy has any effect on upcoming concerts, including an April 20 show at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford.

Per an email exchange with Ole Miss athletics director Keith Carter on Monday, he said the show is still on, but university officials are monitoring the situation in case of a cancelation.

“We are aware of the situation, but no changes have been relayed to us yet,” Carter wrote. “We are obviously monitoring everything very closely.”

Ebie McFarland, a media relations spokesperson for Wallen, confirmed to SuperTalk Mississippi News that no changes have been made to the singer’s touring schedule at this time.

If Wallen does end up canceling his Oxford show, it will be the second time in less than a year that the Billboard Top Country Artist has nixed a show date on the campus of Ole Miss. On April 23, 2023, Wallen canceled the second leg of a two-night stint six minutes before showtime, later blaming vocal issues. After multiple lawsuits from fans, he vowed to reschedule and eventually landed on April 20, 2024.
