Morgan Wallen is in the clear!
The country singer announced that he was given the OK to “talk and sing” after being on a weeks-long vocal rest.
“The doc cleared me to talk and sing… we back,” the 29-year-old wrote on his Instagram Story Tuesday alongside a photo of himself on a boat.
While the “Wasted On You” singer didn’t reveal exactly when he will be taking the stage, he is scheduled for a show on June 22 in Chicago.
The good news comes nearly one month after Wallen had to cancel six weeks of tour dates due to “vocal fold trauma.”
“After taking 10 days of vocal rest, I performed three shows last weekend in Florida. And by the third one, I felt terrible,” he told his followers.
“They want me not to talk at all, but they said if I need to, it’s OK for something like this,” he explained.
He also revealed that he recently tore his latissimus dorsi muscle while performing in Australia.

“[My doctors] told me that if I do this the right way, that I’ll get back to 100 percent,” the “Sand In My Boots” singer shared. “And they also said that if I don’t listen and I keep singing then I permanently damage my voice. So for the longevity of my career, this is just the choice I have to make.”
Before his hiatus, the country star had faced backlash in April after he pulled out of a concert just minutes before he was set to go on stage.
“Ladies and gentlemen, unfortunately, Morgan has lost his voice and is unable to perform tonight,” read a message on the venue’s screens.
“Therefore, tonight’s show has been canceled. Please make your way safely to the stadium exits. Refunds for tonight’s event will be available at point of purchase.”
As the 60,000 concertgoers shuffled out of the arena, they took to Twitter to voice their frustrations.
“Completely disappointed in @MorganWallen!! Been sitting in this stadium for 3 hrs and he just announced the show is canceled!!! COMPLETE BULLS–T!!!” one fan tweeted.
“You don’t cancel a show 5 minutes before showtime. Period. If he was sick or had no voice he knew it much sooner than that. Pitiful,” another Twitter user wrote.
“I’m not even that mad about not seeing Morgan Wallen bc I’ve seen him before. What I’m most frustrated about is the fact that they knew this before the concert and let all 80k plus people buy liquor and merch before canceling so that everyone got their monies worth,” one attendee tweeted, misstating the venue’s seating capacity of 64,038.
Although there were rumors circulating that the singer was “too drunk” to perform that night, his label quickly denied the “false” narrative.
