Here we go again.
The billboards are located in high-traffic areas on Broadway and West End Avenue, and feature an outline of Morgan’s mullet along with a message to the music industry:
“The fans are speaking. Enough is enough. Music industry, we want to be heard!”
They also feature Morgan’s signature phrase, #GAHT, along with Mark 11:25, a verse from the Bible encouraging forgiveness.
This is the third time billboards supporting Morgan have popped up just prior to an awards show, with fans also raising money for billboards in Nashville prior to the ACM Awards, as well as one in Los Angeles ahead of the Billboard Music Awards.
All of this comes, of course, on the heels of Morgan’s widely-publicized racial slur incident that subsequently got him banned from this year’s ACM Awards as well as suspended by his record label, dropped by his booking agency, removed from multiple radio stations and playlists, and more.
The CMA Awards have also announced that Morgan would be ineligible for any solo awards, but that he would be eligible for categories that feature other collaborators such as Best Single, Best Song, and Best Album.
All the while, Morgan’s fans have been steadfast in support of their guy, propelling his Dangerous: The Double Album to the top of the charts for a staggering 10-week run, and voicing their frustration with what they see as a punishment from the music industry that doesn’t fit the crime.
Morgan has also recently begun to re-emerge into the spotlight, hopping up on stage at Kid Rock’s bar a couple weeks ago and at Miranda Lambert’s star-studded karaoke party to celebrate the opening of her new bar, Casa Rosa.
Oh, and he also popped up on Twitter for the first time in awhile to weigh in on the idea of a collab with Hardy and Koe Wetzel.
So while it seems that Morgan may be slowly making his way back into the country music world, his fans are still making it known to the industry that they’ve got Morgan’s back.
