Maren Morris recently made the decision not to share pictures of her infant son Hayes on social media after many rude and critical comments were made, particularly from other moms. Backstage at the ACM Awards Wednesday (Sept. 16th) night, Maren addressed the mom shaming that happens too often for her liking. ["I mean, I guess I shouldn't be shocked because I've had plenty of trolls come after me before and I can definitely have thick skin when it comes to someone saying my music is terrible or I'm ruining the sanctity of country music, but for some reason it feels like an extra betrayal when it's another mother shaming another mother, and I just feel like we need to all give each other some grace and I would never do that and I've learned to be less judgmental all around just by being a mom because it's extremely humbling."] SOUNDCUE (:29 OC: . . . it's extremely humbling.)
Maren took home the trophy for Female Artist of the Year for the first time at this week's ACM Awards. She also won for Vocal Event of the Year as part of the Miranda Lambert-led group performance of "Fooled Around And Fell In Love" along with Ashley McBryde, Tenille Townes, Caylee Hammack & Elle King.
