BMI Statement on Morgan Wallen

Posted in News on February 4, 2021

“BMI condemns the hateful and offensive racial slur recently used by Morgan Wallen.  While unacceptable, under the terms of our consent decree, BMI is mandated to accept all songwriters who want to be a part of our organization. We have asked BMI’s Advisor and Gospel legend, BeBe Winans, to reach out to Morgan to help him understand the gravity and impact of his words. Our hope is that BeBe’s outreach can help Morgan become a more inclusive and empathetic person.”
