Morgan further continued,

The country singer added,
"Imma go try working on me; I'm gonna take a step back from the spotlight a little while and go work myself. I wish I could make country music and my fans proud this Saturday, but I respect the decision once again, and Lorne Michaels actually gave a lot of encouragement by letting me know that we will find another time to make this up. That means a lot to me."
