Caleb Followill is an American musician famous for being the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist for rock band Kings of Leon. He had a soft spot for music since he was a child but his deeply religious background forbade him from exploring the kinds of music he never knew existed. Caleb explains that as a child, he had a radio that was literally always with him and that music gave him his own little world.

In 1999, Anthony Caleb and his brother Nathan decided to call their group ‘Kings of Leon’ (after their grandfather) seeing that it comprised only of boys from the family. One would think that the Followill boys will come together to form a gospel troupe but on the contrary, they have had their own huge share of debauchery with Caleb being the leader of the pack.

Caleb Followill parents
Ivan Leon Followill (father)
He was a preacher in a Pentecostal Church and while his kids were younger, traveled every now and then with his family. He was the strict clergyman who forbade his kids to watch TV or listen to any music that wasn’t ‘Jesus music’. His sons were always inclined to various forms of music but couldn’t pursue their interests until 1977 when Ivan and Betty divorced amidst his failed battles with alcohol. Now Ivan is married to Kathy Manuel-Followill and is a step-father to her 2 sons.
It was a difficult time for the Followill family as they watch their father ‘fall apart’ after they held him in high esteem for years. After the divorce, Caleb began questioning everything and was finally free to explore other kinds of music. This was how his career in music was birthed.
BettyAnn Murphy (mother)
Her family was always traveling with Ivan on his ministry journeys and it just was better to home school her kids. The Kings of Leon rehearse and write songs at the basement of Betty’s house.
Tom Murphy (step-father)
BettyAnn got married to Tom in 2002. Since then they live together. Tom and BettyAnn do future financial security planning.
