Maren Morris can skip CMA Awards after Brittany and Jason Aldean feud

Country singer Maren Morris has still not decided whether to attend this year’s CMA Awards amid her bitter feud with singer Jason Aldean’s wife, Brittany.

“The Bones” hitmaker, 32, earned one nomination but admits she doesn’t feel “comfortable” attending the annual awards ceremony in person.

“I am very honored that my record has been nominated. But I don’t know if I feel [at] home there now,” she told the LA Times. “There will be so many people I love in that room, and maybe during the game I’ll make a decision and go.”

Morris’ hit “Humble Quest” is nominated for “Album of the Year,” while Aldean is competing for “Musical Event of the Year” for his Carrie Underwood duet “If I Didn’t Love You.”

“I don’t feel comfortable going,” Morris told the outlet. “Some evenings are fun. Others I just crawl out of my skin. I’m not good at those events because I’m clumsy. But this time I feel a little peaceful at the idea of ​​not going.”

It all started in August when the “You Make It Easy” singer’s wife thanked her parents for “not changing” her gender during her “tomboy phase” in an Instagram clip.

“Lmao!! I’m glad they didn’t either, because you and I wouldn’t work it out,” her husband commented in her comment section.

Morris hit Brittany over the post, tweet,,It’s so easy to, like, not be an asshole person? Sell ​​your clip-ins and zip them up, Insurrection Barbie.’

Brittany later responded to Morris with, “Karen Morris. Thanks for calling me Barbie.” Jason Aldean and his PR agency The GreenRoom split after 17 years after Brittany took over.

In her LA Times interview, Morris was asked if she regretted saying anything to Brittany or asked her team for help with responses.

“No, I just shot it off. I hate the feeling that I have to be the hall monitor to treat people like people in country music. It’s exhausting,” Morris said. “But there’s a very insidious culture of people who are very comfortable being transphobic and homophobic and racist, and that they can wrap it up in a joke and no one will ever call them out for it. It just becomes normal for people to behave like this.”

“I have no feelings of kindness when it comes to people being fooled into questioning their identity, especially children,” she added. “The whole ‘When they go low, we go high’ thing doesn’t work for these people. Any resistance movement is not done with kind words. And there are much worse things I could have called her.”

The CMA Awards 2022 will take place on November 9.
