Country star Morgan Wade unveils plans to undergo double mastectomy

Country singer Morgan Wade has revealed that she’s set to undergo a double mastectomy later this year.

The “Wilder Days” hitmaker, 28, exclusively told Page Six that after testing for the BRCA gene — a mutation in one of the breast cancer genes — she was faced with bad news.

“I had the BRCA gene, it’s a breast cancer gene so I’m having a double mastectomy in November,” she told Page Six at London’s Highways Festival on May 20.

“I’m going really hard up until November so then November and December I have off to rest.”

BCRA1 and BCRA2 are genes that produce proteins to help repair damaged DNA, according to the National Cancer Institute.

When someone inherits harmful variants of one of the two genes, they develop an increased risk of several types of cancers, including breast and ovarian.

“I’m feeling fine, I’m just pissed I won’t be able to work out because I really like working out,” Wade revealed, adding that she works out 7 days a week. “That’s my only qualm about it.”

“My mom had it, and my little cousin is going to get it, but I’ll be fine,” Wade went on, adding that she got the news last year during her gig stint in Europe.

The news comes hot on the heels of the star announcing that her second studio album “Psychopath” will be released on August 25.

The project follows on from her debut album “Reckless,” released in 2021, a record that notably topped Rolling Stone’s Best Country Albums of the year list.

“With ‘Psychopath,’ we’ve done a really good job of moving on from ‘Reckless,’ to the next stage without it being so crazy different,” Wade told Page Six. “I’m excited, every song on there has its own sound and is completely different.”

Revealing that the album will boast 13 tracks, Wade says the record will paint a picture of her life since the release of “Reckless.”

“[The album] goes into where I’m at in life right now. Which is so busy. It’s about growing up and being older, and starting to feel like, ‘Is it time to settle down?’ I think you’ll see a lot of that on the record.”
