Like many artists, Morgan Wallen has been forced to postpone a number of concerts in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
The singer/songwriter, who is in the midst of his headlining Whiskey Glasses Roadshow, recently took to Instagram to share the unfortunate news that all of his shows through May 1 are being rescheduled.
“We are working on dates right this second. We’ve got that close to being nailed down,” he told fans in a video clip. “We will honor all tickets I’m hoping all the dates work for you guys. We’ve done everything we can so far to get the dates right because we have so many other shows we’re playing too.”
Noticeably bummed over of the news, Wallen ended his message to fans on a brighter note, revealing that he is going to put his time off the road to good use.
“I’m gonna go work on my album in the meantime, so at least there’s somewhat of a positive to this,” he said.
The album Wallen has in the works will serve as the follow-up to his debut record, If I Know Me, which was released April 27, 2018. That project spawned hits like “Up Down,” featuring Florida Georgia Line, “Whiskey Glasses” and his current single, “Chasin’ You.”
