American country music performer and composer Morgan Cole Wallen. He participated in The Voice’s sixth season, first joining Usher’s team and then switching to Adam Levine’s. He signed with Panacea Records following his elimination from that season’s playoffs, and in 2015, his debut EP, Stand Alone, was made available.
Country music musician Morgan Wallen and Instagram influencer Paige Lorenze have broken up less than a month after making their romance official on the social media platform.
According to reports, Lorenze, 24, thought Wallen, 28, was cheating on her since she had been receiving direct messages from other women who said they had slept with him. After his N-word controversy from last year, Wallen is still a contentious figure in the country music industry.
She believed he was having many affairs with different women, a source told Page Six on February 27. The DMs became “just too much,” and Lorenze ended their relationship.
“After they went public, Paige started getting all these messages on Instagram from people saying, ‘I was with him. We slept together.'” The insider claimed that she is “heartbroken.”
On Instagram, Wallen and Lorenze unfollowed one another. Wallen and his ex-fiancee Katie Smith are parents to 1-year-old boy Indigo. According to another source, Wallen is “in fact unmarried and focused on being a dad.”
When Lorenze posted a picture of the ex-couple hugging on her Instagram Stories earlier this month, the world first learned about them. Lorenze commented, “I love you and am so proud of you.
After Wallen played a sold-out event in New York City, the picture was taken backstage. When Wallen started performing, she allegedly “went crazy.”
The two began dating, though, much sooner. Sources informed Page Six on February 2 that the couple had been dating for “nearly” a year at that point before making Instagram official.
Although they agreed to keep their connection out of the public eye, the source added that friends and family are aware of it. After seeing Lorenze and Wallen together in pictures at his sister Ashlyne’s birthday celebration in Nashville, the report was made public. The insider also stated that Lorenze and Ashlyne are “very close.”
This wasn’t Lorenze’s first prominent relationship. She previously dated Armie Hammer when the actor and Elizabeth Chambers declared their intention to get divorced in Death on the Nile.
Because you never know what you’re going to get with him – he’s kind of a scary person, Lorenze ended their brief relationship in a text message in March 2021, accusing Hammer of making her feel “unsafe” and set “rules for me of things I could and couldn’t do.” Hammer denied the accusations through his attorneys.
For more than a year, Wallen has drawn controversy. After he violated COVID-19 safety guidelines to perform on the program, Saturday Night Live canceled his appearance in October 2020.
Then, in February 2021, a video of him cursing while staggering home after drinking was released by TMZ. The Grand Ole Opry received criticism only a month ago for letting Wallen perform with the band ERNEST.
Morgan Wallen was born in Sneedville, Tennessee, on May 13, 1993. Wallen was a child pianist and violinist. After hurting his elbow, he chose music over baseball.
Wallen competed on Season 6 of The Voice with Usher and Adam Levine. The playoffs eliminated him.
Stand Alone Ep and Panacea Records 2015
Wallen met Sergio Sanchez of Atom Smash while appearing on The Voice. Sanchez connected Wallen with Panacea Records’ Bill Ray and Paul Trust. Wallen joined Panacea Records in 2015 and released Stand Alone on August 24, 2015.
Big Loud Records, if I Know Me, 2016–2019
Wallen signed to Big Loud Records in 2016 and released his debut single “The Way I Talk.” In April 2017, he released a music video for “The Way I Talk.” He toured with Florida Georgia Line. 2017’s “You Make It Easy” by Jason Aldean was co-written by Wallen, Tyler Hubbard, Brian Kelley, and Jordan Schmidt.
If I Know Me is Wallen’s debut album. Wallen said in an interview that he didn’t want to be recognized as the “Up Down” person. “Whiskey Glasses” reached No. 1 on Country Airplay in June 2019 and was Billboard’s 2019 top Hot Country song and Top Country Airplay tune.
Wallen joined Florida Georgia Line on their 2019 tour. Wallen debuted on Raw on December 3. “Chasin’ You” peaked at No. 5 on Billboard Country Digital Song Sales in July 2019. Wallen co-wrote “The Fall” by Dallas Smith.
If I Know Me spent 114 weeks at No. 1 on the Top Country Albums list.
Wallen debuted “More Than My Hometown” to country radio on May 27, 2020. Wallen’s song “7 Summers” set Apple Music’s record for most first-day country streams on August 14. It debuted and peaked at number six on the Billboard Hot 100 list.
Time named the song one of 2020’s greatest. Wallen’s second album, Dangerous: The Double Album, will be released on January 8, 2021. Wallen revealed the album’s release date in “7 Summers”
