Morgan Wallen is stepping away from being in the spotlight. In a video posted to Instagram he admited that he needs to 'work on me'. 

"I think I have some growing up to do," Wallen reflects.

"You know, I think I've lost myself a little bit. I've tried to find joy in the wrong places, and, I don't know, it's left me with less joy. So I'm going to go try to work on that. I'm gonna take a step back from the spotlight for a little while and go work on myself."

Wallen issued his personal message to his fans after he made headlines for partying after a football game in Alabama not wearing a mask despite the novel coronavirus pandemic. The "Whiskey Glasses" singer is shown in various TikTok videos from the night of Oct. 3 hanging out with groups of college-aged people at bars and houses, and even kissing multiple women.

Wallen was scheduled to appear on Saturday Night Live as their musical guest, but due to COVID-19 protocals, he was told that they would have to find another time to make an appearance on SNL. 

"My actions this past weekend were pretty short-sighted, and they have obviously affected my long-term goals and my dreams," Wallen says in his two-and-a-half-minute Instagram video. "I respect the show's decision, because I know that I put them in jeopardy, and I take ownership for this. I'd like to apologize to SNL, to my fans, to my team for bringing me these opportunities, and I Iet them down."

He concluded the video by thanking his fans for their support.

"It may be a second before you hear from me for a while, but, uh, I'm gonna go work on me, and I appreciate y'all respecting that, and I'll talk to you soon," he concludes. "I love you."
