Although Morgan Wallen is nominated for Album of the Year at CMA Awards, He is being banned from attending the awards. Last February, Morgan Wallen was caught on video saying a racial slur, which caused him to be dropped from several radio stations. In June, radio stations started playing his music again. The Academy of Country Music has banned Morgan from attending the awards ceremony on November 10 in Nashville.
CMA CEO said, “This is the first time in the history of the CMA, to my knowledge, anyone has ever been disqualified for conduct. Honoring him as an individual this year is not right, and he will not be allowed on the red carpet, on our stage, or be celebrated in any way.”
