Morgan Wallen is in hot water after abruptly canceling his Mississippi show at Vaught Hemingway Stadium on Sunday night (April 23).
Minutes before he took the stage, video boards inside the Ole Miss football stadium showed a message saying the “Thought You Should Know” singer had lost his voice and was unable to perform, adding that people’s tickets would be refunded.
However, some fans were unhappy with the ticket refund after spending thousands of dollars on other expenses around the show.
A woman has taken to Facebook to share a full detailed list of everything she wants the country artist to pay back.
Mandi Walker Nowlin’s list includes a $560 hotel bill, her outfit ($120), her husband’s outfit ($218), a meal at the Oxford Grillhouse in Mississippi ($235) and more .
The full bill was $3,982.
She concluded her Facebook post with a link to her Cash app (a mobile payment service), saying, “I will expect my payment tomorrow. Thanks dude.”
The furious fan added, “My husband went with me to two gigs. Never. We’ve been together for 17 years. Somehow I told him about this one and this shit just happened. product.
Meanwhile, another fan has gone further and is suing the singer “on her own behalf and on behalf of all other members of the public in the same situation”.
“Although ticket prices are refunded, no offer has been made to reimburse concertgoers for other expenses they incurred in connection with the cancellation of the concert, including transportation, accommodation, food, merchandise sales, transaction fees and other similar expenses,” the plaintiff said in court documents obtained by Page 6.

The Independent contacted Wallen’s rep for comment.
On Monday (April 24), Wallen released a statement on the cancellation, writing, “After last night’s show I started losing my voice so spent the day resting, talking to my doctor and working on my vocal exercises trying to get better.
“I really thought I would be able to get on stage and it kills me not to deliver it before show time, but my voice is dejected and I am unable to sing.
“All tickets will be refunded at point of purchase. I’m so sorry, I promise you guys I tried everything I could.
Wallen, one of County’s biggest music stars, is no stranger to controversy.
He was filmed in 2021 outside a house in Nashville, Tennessee, shouting profanity and a racial slur.
He apologized at the time but was indefinitely suspended from his record label and his music was pulled by radio stations and streaming services.
The previous year, Wallen had been arrested for public intoxication and disorderly conduct after being kicked out of a downtown Nashville bar.
The sudden cancellation concluded what was supposed to be two consecutive nights of performances by one of country music’s hottest stars.
The Saturday night show (April 22) appeared to be a huge success with thousands turning up for the first concert in the stadium’s history.
