(Nashville, TN) - The Country Music Association is waffling on its treatment of controversial singer Morgan Wallen. Wallen was caught in a video dropping a racial slur back in February.
The CMA has announced that Wallen will not be eligible for any individual awards, like entertainer or vocalist of the year. His songs and albums, however, will be eligible. The CMA is making the distinction not to throw Wallen a bone, but rather to not shortchange any of his collaborators.
Wallen is up for six Billboard Music Awards, which will be announced Sunday night. But he was not invited to attend or perform at the Billboards.
The Academy of Country Music Awards and the CMT Music Awards have disqualified him entirely.
