About Morgan Wallen
Morgan Wallen was born in a small town called Sneedville in Tennessee on May 13, 1993. He is a 29-year-old, successful country music singer, that can play several different instruments like the violin, piano, and guitar along with his excellent vocal talent.
His mother was a teacher and his father was a preacher. He grew up mostly in the Knoxville, Tn area. At the early age of 5, Morgan Wallen developed his amazing talent for playing the violin and singing in church.
These talents expanded as he grew older, and he learned his love for guitar later in High school. He played Baseball throughout his school years and was an overall good kid.
In 2014 Morgan Wallen auditioned for the talent show The Voice, where he was stolen and coached by Adam Levine. Unfortunately, Morgan Wallen’s appearance on the voice was short-lived and was eliminated fairly quickly.
Being on the voice gave Morgan Wallen exposure to the big guys in Nashville and a few people were interested in finding out just who this guy was ad what he was about. He moved to Nashville and formed a band called Morgan Wallen and Them Shadows.
Instantly he got connected with some of the big shots in music city and Morgan Wallen began his journey to fame. Morgan Wallen landed a spot with Big Loud Records and in 2016 was asked to start training on the radio.
In 2017 he collaborated with Florida Georgia Line on the song “Up, Down” which hit the top of the charts quickly and earned a gold record. In 2019 Wallen returns with the two singles, “More than my Hometown”, and “This Bar”. In 2020 He started working on his double album called Dangerous.
The first part of the songs of the album is about love and relationships, while the second part of the album’s songs is more about himself, his friends, his lifestyle, and his hometown. After his album Dangerous was released in 2021 it worked up the highest number of first-week streams of a country album to date.
Morgan Wallen has not remained the preacher’s son, with his fame came other issues to deal with, one being in and out with the law at local bars in Nashville and getting charges, and another being what was portrayed as racist slurs on the radio.
This trouble with the racist slur led to him being dismissed from his producer at the time and the Album Dangerous was his major comeback. COVID allowed Morgan Wallen the time that he need to be able to work on such as big project as a double album like Dangerous.

Somebody’s problem was thought up because of a joke Ernest had made on the interstate one day. He had said, “Look at that girl in the car beside us”, and Morgan replied, “I wonder who she is”.
Ernest commented back “somebody’s problem” so the song is about not being to get over the pretty girl he saw that was somebody’s problem but not his because he could treat her better than anyone else had.
