On Friday, Maren Morris reacted to a FOX News chyron that labeled her a “Lunatic Country Music Person.” That chyron came from Tucker Carlson Tonight, where Brittany Aldean was appearing to discuss her role in the ongoing argument that began last weekend. “The Bones” singer embraced the label. Check out her post below.
“#NewProfilePic,” she captioned a screenshot of the chyron.
Several celebs and fans alike praised her for the tweet.
“They’re talking about you more than America’s problems,” replied one Maren-inspired fan account.
“Is that for real? That would be my next album cover if it happened to me,” suggested one fan.
“AN HONOR,” replied another fan.
“COUNTRY MUSIC PERSON..as if you don’t have over a billion streams and are Grammy award winning,” chimed in another.
“This just made me full on CACKLE,” replied another fan.
The comments just kept coming after Maren Morris posted the tweet on Friday morning.
“New album title,” suggested another fan.
“see the thing about you, you have talent. insurrection barbie is only relevant bc her husband has like 3% talent,” offered another.
That sparked a reply from another fan defending Jason Aldean.
“Barbie’s husband is 1000x more accomplished than Karen [sic],” the Aldean fan suggested.
“LOL,” someone else replied.
If it’s not an album title, maybe it can be a book. Another fan offered that suggestion.
“Well now you have a title for your autobiography,” they added.
“I would buy that book!” another fan replied.
“Obsessed with them giving you a gender-less pronoun, too. It’s beyond parody at this point,” another fan replied.
How Maren Morris and Brittany Aldean Got Here
Last weekend, Cassadee Pope subtweeted the wife of Jason Aldean, who had made comments about gender identity on Instagram. The comments led to Maren Morris giving Brittany Aldean a new “nickname.”
Brittany Aldean embraced the phrase. She used it on Instagram stories, and country singer RaeLynn adopted it into her own Instagram post. That led to Aldean launching a “Barbie-inspired line” for her brand.
That led to Brittany’s appearance on FOX News on Thursday. That’s where Maren Morris spotted the chyron.
“I was extremely surprised,” Brittany Aldean told Tucker Carlson. “I’m advocating for children. I think that children should not be allowed to make this life-changing decisions at such a young age.”
The whole ordeal led to Jason Aldean’s publicity firm parting ways with him after 17 years, also on Thursday.
“Music has always been and remains The GreenRoom’s core focus,” the firm said in a statement. “So we had to make the difficult decision after 17 years to step away from representing Jason. We aren’t the best people for the gig anymore but will always be big fans of his music – he is one of the greatest live entertainers in country music.”
