Near to her heart. Maren Morris explained why she gets so wound up when it comes to issues affecting the LGBTQ+ community after her recent clash with Brittany Aldean.The 32-year-old songwriter opened up about her passionate stance during an eye-opening interview with GLAAD ahead of the organization’s annual Spirit Day campaign.

Morris recalled growing up in Arlington, Texas, and being surrounded by the queer community from a young age.“It was always just very normal,” she explained on Thursday, September 29, noting that she was involved in theater throughout school and had gay-identifying friends. “My mom was really close to her uncle growing up, who sadly died in the early ’90s of AIDS.

It was just always a conversation in our household that we’re all the same and there is no ‘us’ and ‘you.’ … I definitely feel like it hits closer to home for me now, having a son — and I have gay family members.”Morris pointed out that she “didn’t realize how important” that mindset of equality was until she became an adult and started “solidifying” her own views.
