Morgan Wallen has had his ups and downs in 2020 like all of us, but the singer woke up on New Year’s Day (1/1/2021) full of hope for 2021.
He shared a lengthy post to Instagram writing, “I wanted to make a more serious post for 2020. I don’t really take pics of just me but this was a part of a photoshoot that I scrapped so I’ll just use this one. I could easily have a bad attitude towards the year, and I do in some ways.”
Morgan continued, “I woke up in a reflective spirit today, as I’m sure a lot of y’all did. Instead of lingering on the many negative things that plagued us all, I decided to go the other direction. Most of the negative things for me were public knowledge anyways. Me, some family and friends were at dinner last night and we all shared our lowest and highest point of the year. I’m gonna share some of my 2020 highlights with you.”
He reflects, “My son was born and it was/is the most incredible, scary, beautiful thing of my life. He is healthy, happy, hell he’s even funny already. I know I’m always gonna be a little wild and crazy, but I pray that he knows my heart and that I show him a fraction of the love of Jesus my dad and mama have shown me. I learned that real friends are something to be treasured. I hold my real ones and my family at a higher value than I ever have before.”
Wallen added, “My musical career grew in a way that I never could have imagined. That’s because of y’all. My band, crew, friends I write songs with and who write songs for me pour our heart and soul into the music and I don’t think I can ever put into words how grateful I am that y’all appreciate it the way you do. All in all, I’m far too blessed to complain, wouldn’t do no good anyway. I’m trying to learn every day, and my soul feels content. I don’t know what else I could ask for. Except a farm, and I’m working on that.”
He closed with, “Thank y’all for rocking with me thru the good and bad. I truly love y’all and I hope 2021 is better for us all. God bless y’all and God bless country music Amen.”
