Maren Morris Sparkles In Cleavage-Baring Dress At CMA Awards
Maren Morris sparkled at the Country Music Association Awards on Wednesday while performing her hit song “The Bones.”
The 30-year-old new mother looked gorgeous in a Kardashian-style dress which featured a deep-v neckline, a tie at the waist and a high leg slit. The silver dress sparkled as she sang in front of a glowing moon, and her band also seemed to glow in all white outfits.
The singer won Single of the Year and Song of the Year for “The Bone,” and also took home the award for Female Vocalist of the Year.
While accepting her award for Female Vocalist of the Year, Morris used her time to shine a light on the black country singers who she called “as country as it gets.”
“I just want them all to know how much we love them back and just check out their music after this. It’s Linda Martell, Yola, Mickey Guyton, Rissi Palmer, Brittney Spencer, Rhiannon Giddens,” she said. “There are so many amazing black women that pioneered and continue to pioneer this genre, and I know they’re going to come after me, and they’ve come before me, but you’ve made this genre so, so beautiful. I hope you know that we see you. Thank you for making me so inspired as a singer in this genre.”
On Friday, she thanked her fans on Twitter for “accepting her,” though she feels “hurt” when people say she’s “not 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 is much harder to forge your own path & sound than attempt to be a knock off of someone who’s already pioneered the genre. Thank you for accepting me.
