Legendary Country Singer Implores Maren Morris Not to Leave Country Music

In Sept. 2023, Maren Morris made the surprising announcement to step away from country music. The news came after several years of turmoil and disagreements with the actions of her fellow country music artists.

Morris took serious issue with Morgan Wallen’s use of the n-word in 2021. She followed that up a year later with a social media feud over transgender rights with Jason Aldean’s wife, Brittany.

Earlier this year, Maren Morris took on Jason Aldean himself, speaking out against his song “Try That In A Small Town.”

While many country music fans and television hosts cheered her decision to step away from country music, not everyone was on board. A very outspoken and beloved champion of the genre implored the “80s Mercedes” singer not to leave.

Lee Greenwood wrote an open letter for Fox News, criticizing Morris for, in his opinion, attacking the patriotism within country music songs.

“To suggest that country music is ‘too patriotic’ is to not understand country music at all. It’s in our very name: Country music,” Greenwood wrote. “Our music is written for love of our country, our heart for America.”

“Morris would be wiser to stay in country music, where she could continue the conversation and present her interpretation of what it means to be an American today.” – Lee Greenwood to Fox News.

Maren Morris has yet to respond to Lee Greenwood’s open letter, but it seems she’s been too busy dealing with her personal life.
