Maren Morris has been in the music business since the age of 11.  And she received a breakthrough with her EP in 2016, and her first single, “My Church,” which won her a Grammy.

Even with all the accolades, Morris still is hurt when people don’t consider her country:  “I still can get hurt when people claim I’m not country, but when I stood there accepting @cma song of the year, I realized it’s much harder to forge your own path & sound than attempt to be a knock-off of someone who’s already pioneered the genre,” said Morris.
