Morgan Wallen’s team is clearing up accusations surrounding the last-minute cancelation of last weekend’s concert.

Just minutes before Morgan Wallen was to take the stage Sunday night (April 23), the sold-out crowd was informed that he was unable to perform and the concert had been canceled. The cancelation was announced via a message posted to large screens inside University of Mississippi’s Vaught Hemingway Stadium where the sold-out crowd waited. The message read:

“Ladies & Gentlemen, Unfortunately Morgan has lost his voice and is unable to perform tonight – therefore tonight’s show has been cancelled. Please make your way safely to the stadium exits. Refunds for tonight’s event will be available at the point of purchase beginning tomorrow.”

After Wallen canceled his show, footage was captured of a venue security guard claiming that the “Wasted On You” singer was too drunk to perform.

“Losing his voice is bullcrap,” the security guard said in the now-viral video. He added that Wallen “couldn’t walk” and was “too drunk.” The guard also said that “An ambulance took him off.”

BEST Crowd Management, the company providing security for the event, refuted the security guard’s claim and called them “false.”

“A hired employee of BEST Crowd Management made false claims as it related to last night’s Morgan Wallen concert and we do not stand by the detail in his statement,” read a statement posted to the company’s now-expired Instagram story.

Seth England, CEO of Big Loud Records where Wallen has been signed since 2015, also responded to the security guard’s claims. In a post made to his Instagram story, England thanked the security company and called out the guard.

“Thank you @bestcrowdmanagement for correcting your employee, who made up an entire story that was nowhere close to true. Every detail was false,” he reportedly wrote. “Laughable what some people will just say for a reaction.”

Morgan Wallen issued an apology on social media, saying he had “spent the day resting up, talking to [his] doctor and working through [his] vocal exercises” but was “unable to sing.”

“I am so sorry,” he wrote. “I promise you guys I tried everything I could.”

The singer was placed on doctor-ordered vocal rest and was forced to reschedule three stops on his One Night at a Time World Tour.
