Maren Morris gave an incredible performance on the TODAY plaza on Thursday morning, and while she was singing out her hits, she had the chance to speak with a wonderful audience member.
Lily, a teenage New Yorker who was introduced to Morris by anchor Savannah Guthrie, sang along to all of the hit-songs makers from her seat in the front row.
As Savannah escorted the musician to one of her biggest supporters, she remarked, Lily is blind, but boy, can she hear you.
Before their encounter, Morris had signed a guitar pick for Lily, and as soon as they were introduced, Lily gushed about it.
Lily appreciated the guitar pick a very lot.
The vocalist of “Circles Around This Town” 2-year-old son was the subject of her next query. What song of yours is Hayes’ favorite, and how is he doing? Lily enquired. And she learned the truth.
According to Maren Morris, his favorite song is ‘hummingbird’, probably because it’s about him as she wrote the song when she was pregnant. Hayes’ voice may even be heard in the song.
Naturally, that didn’t surprise super admirer Lily, who beamingly exclaimed, his name is in the record which she has.
The meeting ended with an embrace and a photo, but it’s clear that both Lily and Morris made an impression on the other.
Maren Morris Emphasizing Diversity In Country Music
The musician recently broadened her perspective by pursuing her crazy fantasies of appearing on Broadway and singing a once-in-a-lifetime duet with John Mayer in Nashville, which she claimed caused her brain to burst.
Additionally, she has been putting the focus on diversity in the field of country music.
Morris, whose most recent album, Humble Quest, was released in March, claims that giving birth to her son with her musician husband Ryan Hurd was a turning point in both her personal and creative life.
Maren Morris’s protest song “Better Than We Found It,” which she debuted in October 2020 and was inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, received a Grammy nomination for the best country song—her second this year and 13th overall. It is proof of Morris’ development into an outspoken, progressive voice in the generally conservative world of country music.
