Morgan Wallen's 2-Year-Old Son Helped Him Make His New Album

Morgan Wallen's son Indie might have a future as a producer. The 2-year-old got some experience in the studio while Wallen was recording his 36-track album, One Thing at a Time.  

Wallen says Indie began joining him and producer Joey Moi in the studio while he was recording, and that his toddler "brought a new energy" to the recording process. 

"He started coming in there and banging on guitar strings and, you know, delete songs for Joey and stuff like that," Wallen jokes with Billboard. "But honestly, he brought a lot of joy into the room. He brought a new energy that we hadn’t had in there before.” 

Wallen adds that by the end of the recording process, Indie was a true professional, often sitting on Moi's lap and helping him at the production console. 

Wallen also brought his sister Ashlyne into the album-making process — the siblings duet on a faith-based track called "Outlook." He and his sister have been singing together since they were young. 

"We’ve always been super, super tight,” Wallen says. “We grew up in church singing hymns and stuff and learning how to harmonize with each other and sing three-part harmony."
