Morgan Wallen stopped his concert in Nampa, Idaho on Friday evening (Sept. 9) to help a fan who reportedly had a seizure in the crowd.
While performing “More Than My Hometown,” the East Tennessee native halted his set to assist a concertgoer in need of medical assistance after he noticed something was wrong in the crowd. “Hold on, hold on,” Wallen said, alerting his band to stop playing, so medics can attend to a fan.

“I don’t know exactly what’s going on, but they’re going to take care of her for a second and we’re going to make sure she’s good,” the country hitmaker told the crowd as medical personnel assisted a fan in the general admission pit area. According to other fans in the audience, a concertgoer with epilepsy was having a seizure.
“I guess that just means I’ll have to start the song over again,” Wallen added as the crowd erupted into cheers and began to chant his name.

Morgan Wallen’s Idaho Concert Also Broke A Record Previously Held By Shania Twain
In addition to helping a fan at the concert, Wallen made history with his headlining concert at Ford Idaho Center, breaking a record set by Shania Twain in 1998. According to the President of Live Nation’s mountain region, Creston Thornton (per Idaho Statesman), Wallen sold more tickets than any other artist in the history of the venue with 10,518 fans in attendance. Twain previously held the attendance record with 10,500 fans when the venue opened in the ’90s.
Not only did Wallen break Twain’s attendance record, but his concert was also the fastest sellout in the history of Idaho Center Amphitheater, selling more than 10,000 tickets in under 15 minutes.
The news come just one day on the same day that Wallen dropped the music video for his latest single “You Proof,” which he leaked to fans on Friday evening (Sept. 9).
“Well, my label [Big Loud] just sent me the ‘You Proof’ video and they wanna wait til Monday to drop the video, but I really don’t, so here’s the link,” he said in his Instagram stories, in addition to sharing an unlisted YouTube link. In addition, he also texted a link to the clip to fans via his text community.
“You Proof” was released earlier this year and made a huge impact at country radio upon its release with 52 first-week adds and 94 in total.
The tune is the follow-up to his chart-topping hit, “Wasted On You,” which is Wallen’s sixth No.1 at country radio.
Released on the East Tennessee native’s 29th birthday and co-written by Wallen alongside Ashley Gorley, Ernest K. Smith (ERNEST) and Charlie Handsome, “You Proof” finds Wallen singing about drinking away the memory of a previous lover
“I need something you proof/ Somethin’ stronger than I’m used to/ Yeah, I’ve been pourin’ ninety to a hundred/ Feel like nothing’s gonna cut it, that’s the hard truth/ Yeah, I need something you proof/ Oh, I need something you proof,” he sings.
Already a fan favorite, “You Proof” is poised to top the country radio charts within a few weeks as it’s already sitting in the Top 5.
