After suffering from vocal damage, the “Last Night” singer pulled out of six weeks of his critically acclaimed One Thing At A Time Tour and festival appearances. The news comes shortly after Wallen canceled his set at the University of Mississippi Rebels’ Vaught Hemingway Stadium in late April. Medical professionals immediately placed him on vocal rest, leaving him to postpone three more shows.
On Tuesday (May 9), he confirmed concerning medical results from the Vanderbilt Voice Center in Tennessee. To adhere to doctor’s orders, Wallen canceled all scheduled dates through June 20, including his appearance at the 58th Acm Awards.
“I’m just going to get straight to it. I got some bad news from my doctors at the Vanderbilt Voice Center yesterday,” Wallen previously said. “After taking ten days of vocal rest, I performed three shows last weekend in Florida, and by the third one, I felt terrible. So, I went in and got scoped yesterday, and they told me I injured my vocal cords and that I have vocal fold trauma.”
He continued, “Their advice is that I go on vocal rest for six weeks. So, that’s what I’m going to do. They want me to not talk at all, but they said it’s okay if I need to for something like this.”
Jason Aldean stepped in for Wallen to perform at the ACM Awards. According to ET, Wallen sent Aldean a text ahead of the ceremony to express his gratitude.
“I didn’t really have much to do yesterday, so we were able to go in, fill in for him, help him out,” Aldean told the outlet. “He texted me last night and thanked me for that. Just hope he gets to feeling better soon and gets back on the road.”
