Country music singer and songwriter Maren Morris became a household name when she released her single, ‘My Church,’ which was on her fourth studio album, Hero (2016). Since then, she’s released an additional two albums — Girl (2019) and Humble Quest (2022).
When not on stage or in the studio, the 33-year-old Texas native is often turning heads on a red carpet. As seen below, she didn’t disappoint when she attended the 34th Annual GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) Media Awards ceremony in New York City.
Morris rocked a bluish-purple double-cut dress with a hip-high slit and heels as she accepted the GLAAD Excellence in Media award. Below is a snippet of her acceptance speech, in which she recounts standing up to then-Fox News talking head Tucker Carlson who called her a “lunatic” for standing up to transphobia.
(Morris took the moniker Carlson used — “country music lunatic” — and printed it on t-shirts and raised $150,000 for LGBTQ+ charities.)
Morris includes another jab/joke in her speech about “not wanting to gloat” nor to “insult the recently unemployed.”
