    Morgan Wallen is the butt of jokes after SNL coronavirus fiasco at CMA Awards

    Morgan Wallen is the butt of jokes at the CMA Awards for being dropped as SNL musical guest after being caught partying maskless before the show – but wins New Artist of the Year

    • Host Darius Rucker joked he had Wallen ‘quarantine in my dressing room for two weeks now’ 
    • Wallen was scratched from performing on the NBC juggernaut last month 
    • He was seen in a TikTok clip not wearing a mask on two separate instances 
    • He later apologized and said his actions were ‘pretty short-sighted’ 
    • The Sneedville, Tennessee native also performed More Than My Hometown at the award show 

    It was an up-and-down night for Morgan Wallen at the 2020 CMA Awards, who received the New Artist of the Year honors amid a rehashing of his Saturday Night Live scandal.

    The country music artist, 27, said in accepting the honors: ‘I’d like to thank the good Lord, first of all; I’d like to thank my mama for always being the one to push me to sing, for my dad for always making the sacrifices for me and my family so I could sing.’

    Wallen, who was nominated against Jimmie Allen, Ingrid Andress, Gabby Barrett and Carly Pearce for the honors, hailed his team and the Nashville community.

    ‘It’s been a great five years since I’ve moved here. Thank you guys so much, God bless you.’

    Wallen was the butt of jokes in regards to having an appearance on SNL canceled after breaking protocols the show had in place to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Darius Rucker, who hosted the show from Nashville’s Music City Center, joked: ‘For your safety, I just want everybody to know that I’ve had Morgan Wallen quarantine in my dressing room for two weeks now, so he might make the show – I’m not sure!’

    The Sneedville, Tennessee native also performed More Than My Hometown at the award show.

    The Way I Talk singer issued an apology after he was scratched from performing on the NBC juggernaut last month when he was seen in a TikTok clip not wearing a mask on two separate instances in Alabama, a bar and a party.

    ‘I respect the show’s decision because I know that I put them in jeopardy and I take ownership for this,’ Wallen said, noting that his actions were ‘pretty short-sighted.’

    The 7 Summers performer was replaced by Jack White on the October broadcast, though SNL head Lorne Michaels said Wallen will eventually take the stage on the show.

    Wallen told Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday he has a better understanding of how to navigate life in the limelight as his career continues on the upswing.

    ‘I think I just gotta be aware that most of my actions… will be brought to light,’ Wallen said. ‘I don’t think I really truly understood the reach that I have. It’s all hit me over quarantine.’

    ‘This year’s been jacked up anyway. And I haven’t handled it the best way at all.’

    Wallace told the show that he’s been focused on his next album Dangerous, which is set to come out January 8.

    ‘It’s done, I’ve already turned it in,’ he said. ‘See? I haven’t just been getting on TikTok during quarantine! I’ve been working too. We’ve worked really, really hard on it and I’m really proud of it, so I can’t wait till then.’
