Country star Morgan Wallen surprised a dad singing one of his songs while going through a crowded TSA pre-check line at the airport in Nashville, Tennessee.

The 29-year-old country singer had most likely planned to sneak right through the airport without anyone noticing him given he was wearing a hat and a hoodie, WhiskeyRiff.com reported.

However, those plans changed when he came upon a dad — John Jones, father of former University of Tennessee lineman Jack Jones — who was singing Morgan’s “Chasin’ You” song from his debut album.

Wallen heard the tune and decided to join in, appearing right next to the surprised dad and singing his song while the two were trying to get through security.

Jones’ daughter was even able to grab a quick selfie with Wallen, who was all smiles in his incognito look. Her brother later posted the picture on Twitter.

“My dad was just going through TSA pre check at BNA in Nashville singing ‘Chasing You’ to himself and [MorganWallen] started singing it with him from right beside him,” Jones tweeted. “Also lil sis got a picture. Pretty cool moment.”

Wallen’s latest album, “One Thing at a Time,” has been blowing up the charts and breaking streaming records, Billboard magazine noted.


The country star’s career continues to soar after it seemed like it was over when he was caught on video using the N-word after a drunken night in January 2021. The music industry immediately slammed him and said it was removing his music from numerous platforms, as The Daily Wire previously reported.

Wallen apologized and said he was both “embarrassed and sorry.”

“I used an unacceptable and inappropriate racial slur that I wish I could take back,” the country star shared at the time. “There are no excuses to use this type of language, ever. I want to sincerely apologize for using the word. I promise to do better.”

Despite all the backlash against him, Wallen’s “Dangerous: The Double Album” broke a Billboard record after it remained in the Top 10 of Billboard’s 200 chart for 86 weeks, The New York Times noted.
