Earlier this year before the pandemic forced tours to come to a halt, Morgan Wallen acted as direct support on Jason Aldean’s ‘We Back’ Tour. The tour was unfortunately cut short in early March and was postponed till 2021, due to the ongoing global health crisis.
In the debut episode of Wallen’s Apple Music Country Happy Hour Radio show, the country superstar told a story of a time on the Aldean tour when he punched someone in the face.
After explaining that it was a “dream come true” for him to tour with Aldean, Wallen told fans that it comes as no surprise that he has built quite the reputation for himself to be known as a wild one.
“I think I’ve built a reputation for myself for kind of being a little bit wild, you know I’ve built it honestly, it’s not been something that I’ve had to lie about or something like that,” Wallen said.
Wallen says that although he did punch someone in the face due to a really large misunderstanding, although he didn’t mention who the victim was.
“So I guess I’ll tell you a story about being on tour with Jason at the beginning of the year. I actually punched somebody in the face during the tour, and let’s go ahead and not get any legal action involved because it’s all been taken care of now and it was all really a large misunderstanding but Jason [Aldean] was the guy who defused the whole situation.”
The “7 Summers” singer explained that Aldean treated him like a little brother through the whole thing and that he truly appreciates him. He continued to elaborate that he, the “victim” and Aldean are all still friends and the situation was taken care of.
and has kind of treated me like a little brother through the whole thing and I really appreciate that about Jason. He told me straight up from day one that was he was gonna do that and I didn’t think really too much about it and luckily he was there and had my back and me and the victim of the case and Jason are all still friends”
The ‘We Back’ tour featured Aldean as the headliner with Wallen, Riley Green and Dee Jay Silver serving as support.
