Morgan Wallen Camp Addresses Lack of Amazon Stream from Stagecoach

Last weekend (April 26th-28th), the annual Stagecoach Festival transpired in Indio, California, with headliners Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, and Morgan Wallen capping off each night of the event.

In partnership with Amazon Prime, many of the performances were streamed on two separate viewing channels covering many of the events entertainers. Not all of the performances were covered, but headliners Eric Church and Miranda Lambert were, including Church’s controversial Gospel/covers set.

But when the broadcast schedule for Sunday was revealed, Morgan Wallen fans quickly noticed that his name was curiously absent, including some fans who claimed they signed up for the Amazon service solely to see Wallen perform, and others who said they were ditching the service because he was excluded.

No explanation was given as to why Wallen wasn’t part of the stream, but some assumed it had to do with his history of bad behavior, most notably his recent arrest for throwing a chair off the balcony of Eric Church’s new Nashville bar.

If this was an editorial decision by either Stagecoach or Amazon, perhaps the decision deserved an explanation. Further complicating the matter, in lieu of broadcasting the Morgan Wallen set, Stagecoach and Amazon decided to stream two sets from EDM DJ Diplo. It happens to be that Diplo has his own shady history, including allegations of rape and sexual assault. Because of this, Saving Country Music chose to look into why Morgan Wallen was not part of the Amazon Prime coverage.

However, Saving Country Music can confirm that Morgan Wallen’s set was not broadcast on Amazon Prime due to a request from his own camp. After Saving Country Music sent multiple queries to Stagecoach and Big Loud Records, a representative for Morgan Wallen shared, “Morgan Wallen has a special project in the works for his fans that precludes him from participating in livestreams at this time.”

In other words, the editorial decision to not broadcast Morgan Wallen’s Sunday night performance did not come from Stagecoach or from Amazon, but from Wallen’s own people.
