His Age and Early Life

Soon after Wallen’s career path changed to music when his dad gifted him a guitar. Wallen used to buy the chord notes from Walmart and self-learn the chords on the guitar by looking at the notes. Soon after when he started catching up on the notes he started putting words alongside the chord notes and that was when the music star was created.
