Maren Morris became a hit with country music fans back in 2016 with her song, “My Church.” Now, she is declaring herself a member of the LGBTQ community.

“Happy to be ‘B’ in LGBTQ+” Morris wrote on Instagram as she held a pride flag in the photo.

While Morris has not spoken out regularly about her religious views, her songs have had themes playing off of biblical principles. “My Church” uses the imagery of the power of the Holy Spirit relating back to how she feels about listening to music on the open road. Her song, “Dear Hate,” also uses imagery about the Garden of Eden to explain how love conquers over evil.

Morris’ announcement as a member of the LGBTQ community comes just months after she filed for divorce from her husband, Ryan Hurd, whom she shares a four-year-old son with. Morris and Hurd’s divorce was finalized in January.

As TODAY reported, Morris described in 2022 how becoming a mother and going through postpartum depression dramatically shifted her perspective on life.

“Not just being a new parent and a new mother and dealing with postpartum depression for the first time…but also just knowing my worth without someone clapping for me,” Morris said.

Cultural icons have also played a major role in shaping Morris’ personality. Since she rose to fame, Morris has also become known as a friend to none other than superstar, Taylor Swift.

“…she’s been so supportive of me and my career over the years,” Morris told People. “She’s setting a high bar.”

Pray for entertainers like Morris that she would no longer have to find her identity in the latest trend, fame or A-List relationships. As someone who has already admitted that she has gone through an “identity crisis,” pray that God transforms and renews her mind to be set on Him and that she may truly have an encounter with Christ.
