About Morgan Wallen
about three hours from Nashville in Sneedville, Tenn. (also home to
bluegrass legend Jimmy Martin), Wallen was a star on the baseball
diamond, attended the same high school as country superstar Kenny
Chesney, and has deep roots in the church. With a hard-rock loving
preacher for a father and a mother who couldn’t get enough country and
contemporary Christian music, Wallen began performing for his local
congregation at the tender age of 3 and went on to develop a strong love
of country, rock and hip-hop. After moving to Music City in 2015, he’s
spent the last year developing his writing skills with hitmakers like
Craig Wiseman (“Live Like You Were Dying”), Rodney Clawson (“Dirt”),
Chris Tompkins (“Drunk on a Plane”), the Warren Brothers (“Highway Don’t
Care”), Tommy Cecil (“Home Alone Tonight”) and Matt Dragstrem (“Sippin’
on Fire”), and has been honing his studio poise with award-winning
producer Joey Moi.
