Morgan Wallen is a small-town boy who loves his grandmas.
The "Way I Talk Singer" grew up in the quaint town of Sneedville, TN. Although he has since left his sleepy town for Nashville's bright lights, he still enjoys coming home to visit.
In a recent interview with Cody Alan, Morgan reveals what he loves about his hometown the most.
"I think it's just mostly my family," says Morgan during their interview. "Man, a lot of my family is still over there, you know? My mam maw is still there. My grandma moved away, a little bit, I mean, you know, just down the street," laughs the star.
"But, I still have family there, and that means the most to me there. If I get to go over there, I usually just go to my mam maw's house. My dad's mom. Her husband is a cattle farmer, so they have a lot of land, and there's a river that runs through their property. We do all kinds of stuff."
The grandma's boy recently became a father himself and shared that he hopes his son, Indigo Wilder, can follow in his footsteps and appreciate growing up near family.
"For me, a lot of people I know, don't get a chance to spend time with their great grandparents," says the "7 Summers" singer. "Hopefully, you know, he will get a chance to do that. I am really looking forward to those things!"
Morgan was recently nixed from appearing on 'Saturday Night Live' due to violating COVID-19 safety protocols when video footage surfaced of the singer not wearing a mask and getting up close and personal with fans while in a crowded Alabama bar.
The singer took to socials to share an apology saying, "I got a call from the show letting me know I will no longer be able to play," says the "Whiskey Glasses" singer in the video, which was recorded in his New York City hotel room. "I respect the show's decision, because I k,now that I put them in jeopardy and I take ownership for this."
He apologized to the show, his fans, and his team "for bringing me these opportunities, and I let them down. I wish I could have made country music and my fans proud this Saturday."
Morgan also shared that the sketch comedy's longtime showrunner, Lorne Michael reach out to him directly. "Lorne Michael actually gave me a lot of encouragement by letting me know that we'll find another time to make this up. So that means a lot to me."
