Where Is Koe Wetzel from and What Is His Real Name?
Musical artist Koe Wetzel is an expert in combining country music and rock-and-roll, churning out weirdly delightful music and hit songs. He has been in the musical field since forever, but it was from 2015 that he gained traction.
The 'Drunk Driving' singer has sold over 200 thousand copies of albums and gathered over 100 million streams and views. He also has garnered millions of fans who wonder,
What is Koe Wetzel's Real Name?
Koe Wetzel doesn't seem like a real name for someone born in the south, and that is because it isn’t. Wetzel revealed his full name during a Twitter interaction with his fans in February 2018.
A Twitter user named Samantha Schwenke asked Wetzel what his real name was. Replying to the person’s tweet, he said that his real name was Ropyr Madison Koe.
Wetzel is the singer's family name, making his full name Ropyr Madison Koe Wetzel. He has also used his full moniker in his Facebook account, which is inactive since 2016.
Where Is Koe Wetzel From?
Wetzel was born on July 14, 1992, in Pittsburg, Texas. The 28-year-old got inclined to country music because of his family, specifically his mother, Julie Wetzel.
Julie is a country music artist who traveled from one town to another for her shows in the Opry circuit — a phrase used to denote the country music concerts held all over Texas. Wherever she performed, Wetzel went with her, being inspired every day.
While his mother inspired him to take music, his family members contributed to his musical evolution.
It was his grandfather who introduced him to Creedence Clearwater Revival, an American rock band. And, his father got him into the world of hip-hop as he had a connection with rappers like Notorious B.I.G., Tupac, and 50 Cent.
With time, he developed a liking for alternative rock. He listened to Garth Brooks, Johnny Cash, George Jones, Willie Nelson, Smashing Pumpkins, Soundgarden, and Nirvana.
Does Koe Wetzel Have a Wife?
Wetzel has a lot of female fan following who would love to be his partner.
In 2018, a Twitter user shared that his wife would give him up for a pair of tickets to Koe’s concert.
@959theranch @MaloneRanger959 I'm not sure everyone stands on this but my wife said that she would trade me to Malone for a pair of those @KoeWetzel tickets. I'm pretty easy on the eyes, but I'm still not sure who gets the better end of the deal. #manbarter. — First Responder Foundation (@frfusacharity) July 13, 2018
In another instance, the Texas native randomly asked on Twitter whether the state of Utah sold alcohol. Hilariously, a Twitter user named Tiana Martinez teased him, saying, “No but we sell extra wives in case you need more than one.”
The examples are only a few compared to the love and adoration he gets from his fans. Having said that, Wetzel has never actually revealed his relationship status, albeit making remarks about his dating life here and there.
On October 30, 2016, he took to Twitter to reveal that he tried to make a girlfriend that day but failed. Aside from rare mentions like that, Wetzel has shared nothing about his love life.
