Morgan Wallen responded to rumors that he will be performing at an upcoming Tennessee Volunteers event after the team won the SEC Tournament Champions title on May 29.
After a promotional graphic for an event, dubbed Big Orange Block Party, circulated around the internet with mention of a performance from the “Wasted On You” singer, Wallen quickly shut down the rumors.
The graphic, which featured a schedule for the rumored event, included a 4 PM set time that read “Morgan Wallen Performs,” however, that is false information according to the country hitmaker himself.
Wallen took to social media on Tuesday (May 31) to clarify that he will not be performing at the rumored event, however, he will be performing at PNC Music Pavilion in Charlotte, North Carolina on his headlining Dangerous Tour on Thursday, June 2.
“This isn’t true. I’m playing a show in Raleigh, NC Friday,” Wallen wrote alongside a photo of the graphic. “Go Vols tho.”
It’s currently unclear if the rumored event is a legitimate Tennessee Volunteers function as it does not currently appear on the official website or social media pages.
The reigning Billboard Top Country Male Artist is currently on the road in the midst of his sold-out, headlining Dangerous Tour.
Wallen, a longtime supporter of the Tennessee Volunteers, honored the University of Tennessee’s baseball team in his debut single “The Way I Talk” with a shoutout to the team within the tune’s lyrics: “And gets louder when I’m cheering on the Volunteers.”
Earlier this month, a 2019 video resurfaced of the Tennessee Volunteers baseball players singing Wallen’s hit while en route to a game.
Additionally, Wallen recently released a trio of new songs, including “Don’t Think Jesus,” “Thought You Should Know,” and “You Proof.”
