Aslyn checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@aslyn) on Thursday (December 18), revealing that her grandfather Wally, the subject of the song ‘Wally’ on her debut album ‘Lemon Love’, had passed away. The Atlanta pop singer writes:
Hey everybody. I wanted to let you know on behalf of my family that my Papaw Wally passed away Thanksgiving Day. He was 87 years old. For those of you that don’t know, there was a song named “Wally” on my first record about the incredible love he had with my grandmother for their 55 years of marriage. Papaw was honestly one of the most inspiring men I’ve ever known. He always had something good to say, no matter his surroundings, and encouraged me to do what I do from the very beginning.
