If it’s not country enough for you, change the channel,” Morris says now.
Then there is talk of Morris’ vast array of collaborations, beyond just “The Middle.”
“Common” is a song she sings with Brandi Carlile (who’d written her a thank you note because she is grateful that her daughters get to grow up in a world where there’s a woman like Morris in country music).
And even more recently, Morris was initiated into the all-girl group the Highwomen that Carlile and Amanda Shireshave formed.
Carlile has become such a close friend of Morris’ that she joined her onstage at her recent show at the Ryman Auditorium, along with Miranda Lambert, Cassadee Pope and Natalie Hemby.
