Morgan Wallen and Son, Indie

Morgan Wallen shared a rare photo of his son, Indigo Wilder (Indie), on Instagram on Tuesday evening (June 8) and his fans are going crazy over the adorable father/son moment.

The image features Wallen embracing the 11-month-old and the caption throws it back to 2007 with lyrics from Montgomery Gentry’s chart-topping hit, “Lucky Man.” 

“1 more day to be my little kids dad…lord knows I’m a lucky man,” he wrote.

Wallen’s Instagram post has raked in over 630,000 likes and more than 3,700 comments. The post comes just days before the East Tennessee native is set to celebrate his very first Father’s Day. 

His son, Indie, who was born on July 10, 2020, turns one next month. Wallen co-parents him alongside his ex, KT Smith. 

The singer/songwriter has remained mostly out of the spotlight since early February when he was caught on camera using a racial slur. The 28-year-old recently surprised patrons at Kid Rock’s Big Honky Tonk & Steakhouse with a pop-up performance on May 19. He also attended Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa opening, and even shared a heartfelt performance of a brand new song called “Thought You Should Know.” 

Most recently, Wallen returned to social media by documenting a visit to Bass Pro Shop with little Indie. 

In recent weeks, Wallen’s music has been slowly reinstated on some radio and digital platforms.
