Morgan Wallen, the country singer who recently made headlines for his use of a racial slur, is facing a lawsuit after canceling a concert in Oxford, Mississippi.

According to reports, a woman filed the lawsuit against Wallen, accusing him of breach of contract and negligence.

The Lawsuit

The Prentiss County woman filed the lawsuit on behalf of all affected patrons who incurred expenses related to Wallen's canceled performance at the Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

She criticized the artist for not canceling the show in a timely manner to mitigate any damages incurred by his patrons. The plaintiff is seeking compensatory damages and wants her suit to become a class action lawsuit.

The Cancellation

Wallen canceled his scheduled concert on Sunday, April 23, after he lost his voice and was unable to perform.

The singer made the announcement with a video message inside the Ole Miss football stadium, informing concertgoers that they would receive refunds for their tickets.


Wallen has faced several controversies in the past. In 2021, he faced backlash after a video surfaced of him using a racial slur.

He apologized for his behavior and was suspended indefinitely from his label, with his music being pulled from radio stations and streaming services.

Wallen also had a run-in with the law for public intoxication and disorderly conduct at a Nashville bar.
