“I got some bad news from my doctor’s at the Vanderbilt Voice Center yesterday,” Wallen started off.
“After taking ten days of vocal rest, I performed three shows last weekend in Florida and by the third one I felt terrible,” he admitted. “So, I went in and got scoped yesterday and they told me I injured my vocal cords and that I have vocal fold trauma. 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.”
The shocking announcement comes shortly after Wallen went through controversy after many fans were upset that he canceled his Oxford concert just a few minutes before he was suppose to appear on stage. The news was delivered to the crowd through a message that was displayed on stage, saying that the show is now canceled due to Wallen losing his voice.
It has not been confirmed when his canceled tour dates for the ‘One Night at a Time Tour’ will be rescheduled or refunded.
