Morgan Wallen was born in Sneedville, Tennessee, outside of Knoxville. His father was a Southern Baptist pastor and Morgan got his first taste of music as a 3-year-old, singing during church services for his father's congregation.
As a child, Wallen took piano and violin lessons, and he grew up enjoying music. However, sports were his first love, and he had aspirations of making it a career. "As soon as I was old enough to move and walk, I went straight to sports," he said. "My mom said I never even played with toys. I remember playing with little army men for a second, but as soon as that was over it was just basketball, baseball, football - any kind of ball."
Wallen was offered a scholarship to play baseball in college but an elbow injury during his senior year of high school put paid to his plans.
