Morgan Wallen Wiki/Biography

In 2016, Morgan Wallen signed to Big Loud, releasing his debut album, If I Know Me, in 2018. The album includes the singles “Up Down” (featuring Florida Georgia Line), “Whiskey Glasses“, and “Chasin’ You“. If I Know Me reached No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. Wallen’s second album, Dangerous: The Double Album, was released in January 2021, and in February 2021 became the only country album in the 64-year history of the Billboard 200 to spend its first seven weeks at No. 1. It spent a total of ten weeks at that spot, the first album to do so since Whitney Houston‘s Whitney in 1987. The album included singles “More Than My Hometown“, “7 Summers“, and “Wasted on You“.

His third studio album, One Thing at a Time (2023), has topped the Billboard 200 for 12 concurrent weeks as of May 31, with all of its 36 tracks entering the Billboard Hot 100. This broke the record for most songs by an artist on the chart at one time. The single “Last Night” peaked atop the Hot 100 in 2023, becoming Wallen’s first single to do so. Morgan’s 12-week run has broken several records, including a 31-year one set by Billy Ray Cyrus.

In his teens, the family moved south to Knox County, where he graduated from Gibbs High School. He was a pitcher and shortstop for the school’s baseball team, and hoped to continue in college, but tore his ulnar collateral ligament his senior year. As a child, Morgan Wallen took piano and violin lessons. He was raised on a diverse musical playlist, with his father exposing him to classic rock mainstays. In his teens, he gravitated towards bands like Breaking Benjamin and Nickelback, as well as rappers like Lil Wayne. Morgan Wallen has characterized his early adulthood as adrift; he worked in landscaping after high school and was disappointed by his inability to continue his baseball career. He re-approached his interest in music and began learning guitar. He had grown to love country music, especially artists like Keith Whitley and Eric Church, and he modelled his sound after that lineage.
