CMA board restricts Morgan Wallen’s reward. 2

(Associated Press) — NASHVILLE, Tennessee After being caught on tape uttering a racial slur, country singer Morgan Wallen will be eligible for many honors at this year’s Country Music honors; however, he will not be able to win the show’s top prize. This is a sign of the ongoing fallout that has occurred as a result of the incident.





Morgan Wallen will not be eligible for individual artist categories, such as entertainer of the year and male vocalist of the year, according to Catharine McNelly, a spokeswoman for the Country Music Association (CMA). This decision was made by the Board of Directors of the CMA.

It was ruled by the board that Morgan Wallen could still be nominated for categories that acknowledge a creative achievement, such as album of the year, song of the year, single of the year, musical event, and music video. This decision was made “so as to not limit the opportunity for other credited collaborators.”





On Friday, the voting timetable was made public, and the first nomination ballot will be distributed to voters in the Country Music Association on July 6.

Before the video was uploaded to TMZ in February, Wallen was already one of the most prominent stars in the genre, having achieved crossover success with songs such as “Whisky Glasses.” Morgan Wallen has issued an apology for using the slur, and several streaming platforms and radio stations have removed him from their playlists; yet, his record sales have increased significantly.

He topped the Billboard 200 chart for all genres for a total of ten consecutive weeks with his album “Dangerous: The Double Album,” and it also topped the country album chart for a total of twelve successive weeks. One of just four country musicians, including singers such as Garth Brooks, Billy Ray Cyrus, and Taylor Swift, he is the only one of his kind to have an album stay ten weeks at the top of the charts.





In November, Wallen was selected as the best new artist at the Country Music Association Awards. Based only on album sales, it is quite probable that Wallen will be a contender for the album of the year category. In comparison to any other country album release, this album has maintained its position among the top five albums on Billboard for a total of eighteen consecutive weeks.

Records by Kenny Chesney, Chris Stapleton, Thomas Rhett, Eric Church, and Miranda Lambert with Jack Ingram and Jon Randall are among the other country albums that are eligible for nominations during the period in question.

Even if his tracks have not been actively played on radio or marketed since February, he still had hits during the nomination period, which would make him eligible for the award as well.

The manner in which award shows have chosen to react to Wallen’s activities and the accomplishments he has made in his career has been inconsistent.

There are six categories in which Wallen is nominated for the Billboard Music Awards, which will take place on Sunday. These categories include top song sales artist, top country artist, and top country album. Morgan Wallen is among the top candidates. Nevertheless, in spite of the nominations, he was not invited to attend or play at the performance.





There were other award events, such as the Academy of Country Music Awards and the CMT Music Awards, that completely excluded him from the competition.

Morgan Wallen’s supporters have been quite outspoken in their support, as evidenced by the installation of billboards in Nashville and Los Angeles that feature his characteristic mullet.
