Maren Morris is currently divorcing herself from the very music genre that gave her fame – saying that modern county music has become completely unrecognizable to her – and she transformed into a pure political posturing.
The singer first started her career with county music and, for a very long time, was known to be a Nashville darling, but has ended up going scorched earth on all her peers. This happened right after the singer dropped two new tracks only this week that speak to her disillusionment and anger over where things actually stand in the business.
In one music video for her new song, Morris can be seen simply walking away while a town is burning. While doing a follow-up interview about the music video with the LA Times, she hit that point home, saying, “I thought I’d like to burn it to the ground and start over. But it’s burning itself down without my help.”
She also added that she actually feels distanced from the stories that mainstream country artists are talking about in their songs these days – and that she is trying to avoid the same.
Morris also mentions that she is done trying to actually fit her musical style within the conventional county paradigm, noting that she does find the whole genre stale and lately out of touch.
She said, “After the Trump years, people’s biases were on full display. It just revealed who people really were and that they were proud to be misogynistic, and racist and, homophobic, and transphobic. All these things were being celebrated, and it was weirdly dovetailing with this hyper-masculine branch of country music. I call it butt rock.”
While Morris did not take any names, she might have been alluding to ‘Try That in a Small Town’ by Jason Aldean, among other names that she feels are apparently too hateful and political.
