It's been a weird year for country superstar Morgan Wallen. He launched into superstardom with his album Dangerous, then fell from grace quickly after being caught on camera using the N-word back in February. He was "cancelled" by virtually everyone in the country music industry, dropped from TV appearances, and shunned by most celebrities. But his fans reacted by making his album, once again, the #1 selling album in the world, where it stayed for multiple weeks. Then the ACM Nominations came out, and Wallen was predictably left out of the "Entertainer of the Year" category despite a year that would normally make an artist a shoe-in for a nominee.
And his fans have something to say about it again.
Three billboards, paid for by "Darleen Ingram and 824 Loyal Fans", have gone up around downtown Nashville, showing support for Wallen with the saying "His Fan's Choice: Entertainer of the Year".
The billboards have gone up at I-65 and Broadway, West End at 19th Ave, and West End between 23rd and 24th Street.
Each billboard also refers to Mark 11:25, a bible verse that reads as follows:
And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins."
Do you think that Wallen should have been nominated for an ACM based on his merits? Or did they make the right call leaving him out of the awards?
