Morgan Wallen is an American country singer and songwriter, who began his career as a contestant on The Voice in 2014. He currently has two successful albums out, and fans will be able to see him perform live while on tour throughout 2023.
He was born in Sneedville, TN, on May 13, 1993. As a child, Morgan’s interest in music started when he took piano and violin lessons. In high school, he thought he would enter a career in baseball until an injury forced him to quit; he then began to pursue music.
During his time on The Voice, Morgan met Sergio Sanchez, a vocal coach, who he began working with. Morgan would end up moving to Nashville. With Sergio by his side, they formed the band Morgan Wallen & Them Shadows, but it was short-lived. Sergio introduced Morgan to Bill Ray and Paul Trust of Panacea Records, who signed him. Morgan would only record one extended play (EP) for Panacea before being signed to Big Loud Records in 2016.
In 2017 Morgan collaborated with the band Florida Georgia Line on the song “Up Down.” The song rose to the Top 10 on country singles charts, received a gold record, and Morgan included the song on his first full-length album If I Know Me (2018).
