Morgan Wallen cleared to sing after 6 weeks of vocal rest

NEW YORK — Morgan Wallen has been cleared to return to performing.

The “Whiskey Glasses” singer, 30, canceled a series of concerts, including two at MetLife Stadium, after injuring his vocal cords in May.

“The doc cleared me to talk and sing… we back,” he wrote on his Instagram story Tuesday, while posing on a boat during a fishing trip with friends.

Wallen’s website lists his next two shows as scheduled for June 22 and 23 at Wrigley Field in Chicago. That would be about seven weeks after he was ordered to rest his voice.

On April 23, Wallen canceled a show in Oxford, Mississippi, at the last minute due to vocal issues, telling the angry crowd, “My voice is shot.” He was advised to rest his voice for 10 days.

Two weekends later, the country star powered through three shows in Florida, but said afterward that he’d suffered a vocal injury.

“I went in and got scoped yesterday and they told me that I reinjured my vocal cords and that I have vocal fold trauma,” Wallen said in a video to fans. “Their advice is that I go on vocal rest for six weeks, so that’s what I’m gonna do. They want me not to talk at all, but they said if I need to it’s OK for something like this.”

That cancellation affected two shows at MetLife stadium on May 19 and 20. According to Wallen’s website and the MetLife website, those shows have been rescheduled for May 17 and 18, 2024.
