You can’t judge a book by its cover, right? If you could, you might think that Maren Morris is fragile and delicate with her diminutive size, but looks are most definitely deceiving. Maren has a heart as big as Texas and a killer sense of humor, and when she’s passionate about something, she isn’t afraid to speak up.
Can I get a hallelujah?
On Feb. 22, Maren took a moment to talk about what moves her musically. She also took a stand about the future of music. Not just country music but “good music.”
In a series of tweets, Maren shared some very thoughtful posts, starting with one that declared a sisterhood among her fellow performers. “In a world where girls are a lot of times pit against each other, I have to say, ‘HELL no.’”
It turns out that much of what inspired the Grammy winner’s thoughts was her participation in “Cayamo 2017,” a songwriter’s festival/cruise that also included Kacey Musgraves, Ruston Kelly, Lee Ann Womack, Emmylou Harris, Maren’s boyfriend Ryan Hurd and many more. She even admitted to becoming emotional during one performance.
The talented Texan then had some words of empowerment to her fellow musicians — both the aspiring and the established.
But it wasn’t just fellow musicians that Maren wanted to speak to. She had some thoughts for listeners, too. Not necessarily fans, but anyone who has ever listened to her music, and it’s one of the sweetest messages we’ve ever read.
If Music Row had a mayor, we’d nominate Maren.
