Hardy, Ernest, and Morgan Wallen Share the Story of Their First Kisses

Put this trio in a room together and you’re sure to get some laughs! Hardy, Ernest, and Morgan Wallen shared the story of their first kisses on This Past Weekend with Theo Von.

First kisses are memorable moments in one's life, filled with a blend of excitement, anticipation, and often a touch of awkwardness. These country artists may be famous for their music, but they too have their own tales of those unforgettable first kisses that anyone can relate to.

Hardy reminisced about kissing a girl named LeeEllen when he was around 13 years old. Wallen and Ernest ragged on him for his “late start,” sharing they were much younger when they did the deed. Wallen, who did not really remember his first kiss, knew he kissed his 12-year-old babysitter when he was only seven. Ernest remembered every detail about his first kiss with Virginia Bane Burkhart. He said ‘My mom tells this story because she picked me up from school that day. My little preschool ass jogging down the steps. Mom was there and she said, “How was your day at school?” And I said, “I’m gonna marry that girl in the pink panties!”’

Hardy, Ernest, and Morgan Wallen may be country music sensations, but their stories of first kisses serve as a reminder that beneath the fame, they are just like the rest of us, who have experienced the sweet and memorable moments of young love. First kisses are often the stepping stones to greater romances and, for these artists, a source of inspiration for their lyrics. So, the next time you hear one of their songs, remember that behind those melodies, there could be a story of a memorable first kiss that has shaped their music.
