Is Maren Morris “Too Much” for Country Music?

She’s ruffling a lot of feathers these days!

Maren Morris tells GQ magazine that she doesn’t understand why people think she is rebellious. “I kind of look back at the history of the women I’ve looked up to in country music and I think to myself, like, is what I’m doing that rebellious? Because I look at Shania Twain, and how she would play with sounds and genres, and they were huge. And what she would wear on stage. I mean, she was vilified even then for looking “too pop.” But that was like 20 years ago. The adage is always, “Oh it used to be so wholesome.” I’m like, have you seen what Dolly used to wear? … And then I think about the Dixie Chicks, and “Goodbye Earl”, where they killed a guy in a song, but it was funny … things like that, those were really pushing the envelope.”

What do you think?  Is Maren “too much” for country music these days?
