The singer and guitar strummer took to Instagram on Monday to address why he skipped out on the “Idol” Season 19 sendoff that would have seen Gunn perform alongside Sheryl Crow.
“Well, let’s just say I missed my opportunity to sing with legendary @sherylcrow . what happened is not much to discuss at this point,” Gunn began a lengthy caption alongside a photo showing words of inspiration. “I would like to make it up and invite @sherylcrow to perform couple of songs on the July 30th at @thecotillion.”
The songwriter pressed that it was a “last-minute” decision to drop out of the reality competition so late in the game.
“I couldn’t help but say no cause of some personal morals and values due to unpleasant environmental experiences,” Gunn continued. “It’s not necessary to state it, it is what it is, so I felt like I had to move on, It’s not the show @americanidol to blame, they were there long before nor anyone related to show.”
