Country singer-songwriter Morgan Wallen is the crooner behind his country singles like Whiskey Glasses, Chasing You, and Up-Down. Wallen rose to stardom as a contestant on the sixth season of the singing competition show, The Voice; he performed under the mentorship of Usher and later as a member of Adam Levine's team.
Morgan Cole Wallen was born on May 13, 1993, in Sneedville, Tennessee. He originally aspired to become a baseball player, but an unprecedented injury pushed Wallen to pursue music instead. After his elimination from The Voice during the playoffs, Wallen managed to amass a legion of fans with soulful music, but instances of the singer's jarring controversies in the last few years have been abundant, causing him his hard-earned reputation and fans.

The Sneedville-born singer had greater success with Big Loud Records, under which he released his bigger hitmakers like The Way I Talk, You Make It Easy, If I Know, and Up-Down, which ranked at No.16 on Billboard.
Morgan's single, released in June 2018, was No.1 on Country Airplay and even charted on Billboard.

The ardent fans refuse to boycott the singer despite the ongoing accusations against him; we will get back to that later.

Wallen rightfully faced several retributions after evoking racist controversy last year. The country singer was filmed using the n-word in Nashville earlier last year and immediately met the consequences. Several broadcast and streaming companies, including Iheart radio SiriusXM Satellite Radio, removed his music from their station, and Big Loud suspended its contract with him.

The Sand in My Boot singer posted a clip of himself seeking apology and pledged to donate $500,000 to Black charities; the amount was a rough estimate of what Wallen raked from Dangerous. Fox News confirms the singer has fulfilled his promise. Wallen pledged $100,000 to the National Museum of African American Music, $300,000 to Black Music Action Coalition, and $100,000 to Rock Against Racism.
Wallen declined the racism accusation and said, "I was around some of my friends, and we say dumb stuff together. In our minds, it's playful. It sounds ignorant but that's really where it came from, and it's wrong." He adds, "I didn't mean it in any derogatory manner at all." Wallen recently went Instagram official with his girlfriend, Paige Lorenze. Details on his love life are here.
