Brandi Burcham, a fan of Morgan Wallen, filed a lawsuit against him on Monday after he canceled a concert just before it was scheduled to start.
Who is Brandi Burcham?
Brandi Burcham is the woman who filed a lawsuit against American country music singer and songwriter Morgan Cole Wallen.
Brandi Burcham filed a class action lawsuit “on behalf of herself and all other similarly situated” consumers who attended Wallen’s performance at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford, Missouri, on Sunday, only to be alerted at the last minute that he had lost his voice.
While the venue promised refunds “at point of purchase,” Burcham claimed in court records acquired by Page Six that hers had not yet been “issued” when she filed the case.
Burcham also wrote – “Even if ticket prices are refunded, no offer has been made to reimburse concertgoers for other out-of-pocket expenses they incurred in connection with the concert cancellation, including transportation, lodging, food, merchandise sales, transaction fees and other such expenses.”
Burcham is suing for breach of contract and negligence, as well as a jury trial.
The 29-year-old More Than My Hometown hitmaker canceled the fifth date of his One Night at a Time World Tour after opening acts Hardy, Ernest, and Nate Smith had already played, disappointing about 60,000 fans, many of whom resorted to social media to express their disappointment.
Wallen is no new to controversy; in fact, in 2021, he was caught on camera using the N-word on a wild night out. He later expressed regret for using the racist slur, however, this did not have an adverse effect on his song sales or streaming figures.
After the performance, Wallen posted on Instagram Stories that he was “so sorry” and had “tried everything [he] could” to feel better.
The former “The Voice” finalist said in a second message on Monday that he had to delay three further locations on his tour because he had been put on “doctor-ordered vocal rest” as a result.
“I appreciate and understand everything you do to get to my shows, so it would be unfair of me to put on a show that I know will not be 100%. I’m doing everything I can to speed up the process of getting to that 100% mark,” he added.
