Maren Morris relishes her role as a mother to toddler son Hayes, but she holds her own mother, Kellie Morris, up as one of her biggest role models. She tells us: “Definitely my mother. She's such a hard worker and she and my dad own a small business in Texas and I feel like nothing's been handed to her. She grew up in poverty and she really made something of herself without even a college degree. She's just such a street-smart go-getter and so I feel like that's been instilled in me from day one because of my mom.”
Maren's Mother's Day weekend includes a performance at the iHeart Country Festival in Austin, TX on Saturday (May 7th).
She sits inside the Top 20 and climbing on the country charts with “Circles Around This Town.”
