Country-star, Morgan Wallen was the musical guest on last week’s episode of NBC’s Saturday Night Live. Wallen was originally scheduled to perform on October 10th, however, due to violating COVID-19 protocols, the singer-songwriter was replaced with alternative rock artist, Jack White. Keep reading below to see how his redemption went.
Two months ago, Saturday Live Night pulled Wallen as the musical guest after videos of him partying with University of Alabama students after a football game circulated the web. As promised, the prestigious late-night television show invited the rising superstar back to the show just a few short months later.
Wallen and Saturday Night Live were not afraid to poke fun at the incident that sparked the controversy back in October. In one of the first skits of the night, Wallen played himself while host, Jason Bateman starred as Wallen one month into the future. After advising present-day Wallen to go home so he doesn’t get in trouble, future-Wallen sees how fun this party is and tells his past self to stay a little while longer. More antics occur with other cast members, which causes him to write a song about the scenario. Watch the funny skit below:
Wallen’s highly-anticipated double album comes out on January 8th. Along with “Still Goin Down,” he released two additional new songs on November 20th, including the fiery “Livin’ The Dream,” and the heart-wrenching “Somebody’s Problem”.
