Eric Church’s Bar Commemorates Morgan Wallen’s Chair-Throwing Incident With New Plaque

Morgan Wallen performs onstage during night one of his One Night at a Time 2024 tour at Nissan Stadium on May 2, 2024, in Nashville, Tenn.

Eric Church’s bar in downtown Nashville, Tenn., is once again teasing Morgan Wallen about a chair-throwing incident that occurred last month during the bar’s opening weekend.

Wallen, 30, allegedly threw a chair off the bar’s rooftop late on April 7. The chair fell six stories before crashing onto the street below, where local authorities said it landed “close” to two police officers.

The “Last Night” singer was arrested early on April 8 and charged with three counts of felony reckless endangerment and one count of misdemeanor disorderly conduct.

Chief’s, Church’s bar, poked fun at Wallen in the days after the incident by updating the marquee outside the building with a message that read, “Our pigs fly, our chairs don’t.” On Friday, May 3, the bar revealed the latest way it had decided to tease Wallen over the incident with a photo shared on Instagram Stories.

The image showed a chair sitting on the bar’s rooftop next to the brick wall protecting visitors from the drop to the street below. Near the top of the barrier was a plaque discouraging patrons from copying Wallen’s alleged antics in gold lettering: “Don’t even think about it, you are not Morgan Wallen.”

Chief’s shared the image on the day of the country music star’s first scheduled court hearing. The “Whiskey Glasses” singer, who performed at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium the night before as part of his One Night at a Time tour, waived his appearance and was represented in court by his attorney, Worrick Robinson. Wallen is next expected in court on Aug. 15.

Robinson told reporters that his client is “doing well” and staying “very busy.”

“This is obviously a very complicated case,” Robinson told local news station WSMV-TV. “It’s not going to resolve itself without subpoenas and witnesses.”

Two weeks before that initial hearing, Wallen broke his silence about the incident in an April 19 post on X. “I didn't feel right publicly checking in until I made amends with some folks,” he wrote. “I’ve touched base with Nashville law enforcement, my family, and the good people at Chief’s.

“I'm not proud of my behavior, and I accept responsibility,” his statement continued. “I have the utmost respect for the officers working every day to keep us all safe. Regarding my tour, there will be no change.”
