Singer Maren Morris quits country music and blames the ‘Trump years’

(The Hill) – Singer Maren Morris has announced that she is leaving country music due to the effects of the “Trump years” on the music genre.

“After the Trump years, people’s biases have become clear,” the “Bones” singer said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times published on Friday. “It just exposed who people really are and that they are proud to be misogynists, racists, homophobes and transphobes.”

The Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter added that she is upset that music is being used “as a toxic weapon in the culture wars.”

Referring to Jason Aldean’s hit song “Try That in a Small Town,” which has sparked an uproar with conservatives, Morris said: “People are streaming these songs out of spite.”

She continued: “This is not because of true joy or love of music. It’s to own libs. This is not what music is about. Music is supposed to be the voice of the oppressed actual oppressed. And now it’s being used as a truly toxic weapon in the culture wars.

Morris first made political headlines last year when she criticized comments made by Aldean’s wife, Brittany Aldean, regarding gender affirming care for transgender youth last year. Morris then faced backlash from conservative TV host Tucker Carlson, whose Fox News show featured a badge calling her a “crazy country person.”

Morris made fun of the situation and raised $100,000 for pro-trans organizations by selling a t-shirt playing on the chiron.
