I’m not sure how popular Maren Morris is in the country community amongst her peers and their spouses, but something tells me this is going to be a tough one to live down.
Apparently, she and fellow singer, Mickey Guyton were exchanging tweets about the attempted coup at the US Capitol building last night when Morris decided check some country wives.
Uh-oh. According to People, Morris and Guyton are referring to Brittany Aldean and Brittney Kelley (wives of Jason Aldean and Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line).
Online, Aldean has shown her support for the President, questioned BLM protests last summer, and criticized coverage of last Wednesday’s events at the Capitol.
Kelley’s husband had previously stated he did not vote for Joe Biden (which caused a rift in FGL-btw), and she had to adjust the caption of an Instagram post last Wednesday in which she initially referred to participants at the Capitol as “patriots,” but altered it when it became clear the mob was beginning to riot.
Here’s a later post, and a caption from her Insta story
“I do not believe in violence, or mobs/cults rioting or storming buildings. I do not believe ‘patriots’ are the people storming the building. I believe we all should be calling on God to protect our country and our people. No matter what ‘side’ you’re on, we can agree we are all human beings and we are all in it together. Love you all.”
Not sure what Maren is hoping to accomplish, I just know this is a huge political hot button in our country, Too hot to not hold some opinions close to the vest.
The fallout from this could be HUGE.
I can’t speak for the Aldeans or the Kelleys, but I get the feeling Maren’s not just gonna be off the Christmas Card list, but this could be the kind of shot that creates a wound that won’t heal.
Just ask the Dixie Chicks.
