Morgan Wallen just announced to fans that he is having to fight to get rights to his old music. As a result of all of the mishaps, he decided to rerelease “Spin You Around” as his own. Fans immediately showed support for Morgan and even compared this situation to Taylor Swift’s. Wallen stopped his duck hunting trip to rerecord the song and put out an important notice.

Morgan Wallen And His Music Journey

The country artist has had quite a journey when it comes to music. He has been canceled, came back better, went on a huge tour, and released new music. It is safe to say Morgan is a fan-favorite in the country music world. Ten years ago, Morgan went to Florida to try and write and create his music. This resulted in him parting ways with his management company. He feels as though the music was not up to his standards. However, they did create a fan favorite song “Spin You Around”.

Important Statement He Put Out

Morgan Wallen’s old management company is going to release a 10th anniversary edition of the album. This will consist of eight unreleased songs and Morgan does not approve of this. Here is the statement he put out on Instagram.

“I’m writing y’all from a duck hunting trip because I want to fill you in on something happening tonight.
Back in 2014, I went to Florida to try my hand at making original music & songwriting for the first time. This led to a recording deal with a local investor & an artist management deal that I deeply regret. Unfortunately, I signed both deals without any legal representation.
We made 13 songs. Some were ok, most were terrible as I was just learning how to write in general & figuring it all out. I was not the only collaborator, so many of these songs were not my idea nor to my standards. We deemed 5 worthy-enough to make the Stand Alone EP which includes a fan-favorite, “Spin You Around.”
Tonight, those colleagues I parted ways with almost 10 years ago plan to release a “10th Anniversary” edition of Stand Alone against my wishes & include 8 unreleased songs, distributing it with the assistance of my former managers. For months I’ve been exploring every avenue possible to acquire the rights to this old music & keep the quality of my catalog consistent with songs I choose to release & believe in.
It’s gross, greedy & an example of how the dark side of the music business can suck the soul out of artists.
I want you to know this is NOT my new music & I don’t want to see this happen to anyone else. I cringe when I listen to these songs & I’m concerned my fans may mistakenly believe this is a new release by me. I begin recording my next project at the end of February. I’m feeling inspired creatively & super excited to make more music I’m proud of.”

Fans are sad this has happened to him and are going to support him through whatever comes next. It seems as though Morgan Wallen has some new music up his sleeve and will be recording it soon enough. So, fans know any new music that gets put out on the “Stand Alone EP” is not condoned by Morgan and he does not support it. What do you think about this whole situation?
