Early life, family and education
Caleb was raised alongside his brother in Montgomery, by their parents who prefer to be left out of the spotlight, thus not a lot is known about them.

He attended a local high school in Montgomery, and was interested in various activities as he practiced singing and playing the guitar, appeared in a couple of plays, and also enjoyed playing soccer. Upon matriculating in 2010, Caleb enrolled at Auburn University, from which he obtained his Bachelor’s degree in 2013.
