Reese Witherspoon’s Son Deacon Releases His First Single ‘Long Run’

Move over, Reese Witherspoon. There’s another star in the family. The Walk the Line actress and Ryan Phillippe’s eldest son, Deacon, is breaking into the music industry and just dropped his first-ever single.

On Friday, the 16-year-old released his song, “Long Run” featuring fellow artist Nina Nesbitt, in an Instagram post, writing, “Long Run out now on all platform hope you guys enjoy link in bio @ninanesbitt lets goooo.” It’s important to note, Deacon doesn’t actually lend his vocals to the song (something fans were quick to point out in the comments section). Instead, he produced, composed and provided the beats for the song.

“Won't you just stay for a minute, won't you just be for a minute,” Nesbitt sings in the chorus. “I just need to know that you're in it for the long run."

Of course, the Big Little Lies star showed her support for her son by sharing the single on her personal Instagram account. “New Song of the Summer! #LongRun So proud of my son @deaconphillippe... his first single with the incredibly talented @ninanesbitt is out now!” she captioned the post. “It’s the perfect summer bop with a sick beat and dope drops (is that what the kids say?!) check it out!”

The song wasn’t a surprise release, the 16-year-old announced the song’s release earlier this week by sharing its black and white cover art that features himself in a swearer with slicked-back hair. And it looks like he’s simply going by the name “Deacon.”

Now, is it too much to ask for a music video with a Reese cameo?
