Morgan Wallen graciously thanked his dad, Tommy Wallen, for making him the father he is today for his 2-year-old son, Indigo “Indie” Wilder Wallen, in a newsletter sent to his fans on Friday, June 16.

The newsletter, which was sent to his mailing list, also included a special Father’s Day merch sale, which gave fans 15% off all merchandise in his store, and photos of Wallen with his dad and son. 

“Happy Father’s Day to all you dads out there raising up good ole boys and girls,” Wallen shared. “And to my dad, thank you for being an example of what a good father is. Grateful for your guidance and support.”

Wallen went on to share a message of gratitude for his father for being a good role model. 

“Wouldn’t be the father I am today without you. I’m so blessed to have Indie & thank the Lord every single day he chose me to be his daddy!”

The record-breaking hitmaker has been open about how fatherhood has made an impact on his life.

“I think the most important thing for me over the past couple of years, I’m a dad now,” Wallen said in a recent interview with Breakfast Television. “That’s really given me something different to live for.”

Wallen continued, “I don’t know if I’d say I was selfish, but I probably was before that. But now, things just have a whole different meaning for me. So even in the highs in the lows, I always have him. All the time, he’s there. He’s what’s important to me.”

In May, the East Tennessee native recently rang in his 30th birthday by spending some quality time with his son, Indigo, who will turn three on July 10.

The father/son duo was all smiles as they posed for photos while cruising around in a UTV.

“Celebrating 30 w my dawg,” Morgan Wallen captioned the sweet snapshots.

Wallen is gearing up to resume his One Night At A Time World Tour in late June when he returns to the stage at Chicago’s iconic Wrigley Field for back-to-back nights at the home of the Chicago Cubs. 

On Thursday, June 22, Wallen will be joined by HARDY, ERNEST, and Bailey Zimmerman, and on Friday, June 23, Parker McCollum, ERNEST, and Bailey Zimmerman.

Wallen’s sold-out headlining One Night At A Time World Tour kicked off with two sold-out shows at American Family Field in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in April.

Produced by Live Nation, the trek will feature support from ERNEST and Bailey Zimmerman on all dates. HARDY and Parker McCollum will also appear on select dates.

The One Night At A Time World Tour marks Wallen’s first-time ever headlining stadiums across the globe for multiple nights.

The tour is in support of Wallen’s latest album, One Thing At A Time, which recently claimed the top spot on the Billboard 200 chart for a 13th non-consecutive week.
