Morgan Wallen found himself in handcuffs in Nashville again. According to reports, Wallen got a little too rowdy at Eric Chruch’s new honkey-tonk, Chief’s. He proceeded to throw a chair off the sixth-floor balcony, which landed near officers on the sidewalk. The singer was arrested on felony charges of reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct. Wallen’s team was able to post bond and he was released early Monday morning.

Jelly Roll had a big night at the CMT Music Awards. His video for “Need a Favor” won CMT Performance and Male Video of the Year. He also won the top prize of Video of the Year. Miss Lainey Wilson’s “Watermelon Moonshine” won Female Video of the Year. Carly Pearce and Chris Stapleton won Best Collaborative Video. Warren Zeiders and Ashley Cooke won in their respective categories of Male and Female Breakthrough Videos. Finally, Dan and Shay took home the award for Duo Video of the Year.
