MORGAN WALLEN is a singer and songwriter with a taste for all sorts of music from classic rock to hip / hop but with a voice that points straight to country. MORGAN WALLEN was born in Sneedville .. Tennessee on May 13 1993. Growing up in the Knoxville area WALLENS father was a preacher who loved the bombast of hard rock while his mother was a teacher whose tastes ran to contemporary Christian sounds. MORGAN developed a strong interest in music at a very young age ... he started singing in church when he was three years old and took up the violin when he was five. WALLEN later learned to play piano and guitar but in high school his passion was baseball .. pitching for the team at Gibbs High School in Tennessee. WALLEN was good enough to earn offers to play college ball on a scholarship but late in his senior year an elbow injury put an end to his days as a pitcher and MORGAN began considering music as a career. In February 2014 WALLEN became a competitor on the popular televised singing competition THE VOICE ... blind auditioning for the judges with the song COLLIDE by HOWIE DAY. USHER liked WALLENS performance and Morgan joined his team. After the second Battle Round Wallen was stolen by ADAM LEVINS team but MORGAN was eliminated in the playoffs. THE VOICE gave WALLEN nationwide exposure but it also helped him find a collaborator .. Sergio Sanchez of the band Atom Smash was a vocal coach on the show and the two began writing songs together that suited WALLENS country voice and rock / roll attitude. WALLEN moved to NASHVILLE where he and Sanchez formed a short lived band .. MORGAN WALLEN AND THEM SHADOWS. After settling in Music City WALLEN landed a manager and an agent as well as a publishing deal with Big Loud Shirt Music. After placing his songs with a number of up and coming artists BIG LOUDS record label .. BIG LOUD MUSIC gave WALLEN a chance to record as a solo act and he went on a tour of radio stations to get back in shape for performing. In 2016 .. WALLEN made an impression on radio with his tune THE WAY I TALK and a five song EP featuring the track soon followed. Returning in 2017 .. he collaborated with FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE on the single UP DOWN.
