Although Morgan Wallen is a finalist six times across five categories, he won’t be appearing during this year’s ceremony.

“Morgan Wallen is a finalist this year based on charting. As his recent conduct does not align with our core values, we will not be including him on the show in any capacity (performing, presenting, accepting),” dick clark productions shared in a statement.
