Morgan Wallen Opens Up About Shootings

November 19, 2018

Morgan Wallen was performing at Joe's Live just outside of Chicago earlier this month. Taste Of Country talked with him backstage and he said he's just damn tired of daily shootings in America. Wallen said, "I was on my way to the airport and I sometimes check the news and saw that there was another shooting," Wallen says, "And then I realized it was a country bar. I mean, first, it’s sort of scary. Then you get mad."

The tragedy at Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, Calif., that took the lives of twelve people is something that was weighing heavily on Wallen's mind not only on this particular night, but seemingly every night since.

"I don’t have any answers, but in my personal opinion, I’m a person that has faith and I believe that a lot of people have neglected God," he says, his eyes focused on the ground beneath him. "We don’t put the Ten Commandments in school anymore. We just neglect everything and people act like the Ten Commandments is something so terrible. I mean, it’s a way to live. I think we all could agree on what they say."
