Maren Morris doesn’t believe in gatekeeping in country music. It’s for everyone to enjoy!

The singer shared her thoughts on Instagram after being stunned by an unexpected question in Mexico, reports Whiskey Riff. She was being interviewed while on tour with Niall Horan. “People in Mexico think country music is primarily for white people. How do you want to change that?”

“Country music is about your story, your heartache, your rise, your hometown,” she responded.

She added in her Instagram post: “It’s not specific but it’s so specific. That’s why it’s beautiful. I want to demonstrate and celebrate that. So here it is. A song being sung to a bilingual and trilingual crowd and them just feeling it. Genre, country, language, skin color, background… music is the only language we shouldn’t be confused over.”
