On ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race,’ Maren Morris apologises for how country music treats LGBTQ+ people.

Maren Morris continues to serve as an ally.

The country singer appeared as a Season 15 guest judge on “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” where she shared a heartfelt moment with contestants about the rocky relationship between the country music industry and the LGBTQ community.

“I just want to say I’m sorry coming from country music and its relationship with LGBTQ+ members,” Morris said in a clip posted on the show’s Instagram page Saturday. “I appreciate you making me feel like a strong voice in country music. So I just wanted to say thank you for inspiring me.”

“I’m going to cry, and I have to go,” the Grammy winner added.

The queen of drag “Just you being here shows you’re an ally,” mistress Isabelle Brooks said to the “Circles Around This Town” singer.

Spice said on “RuPaul’s Drag Race” that they “loved hearing Maren share her story because a lot of times with country artists, they can’t really express their more progressive ideals.”

“Just her presence here shows she’s down to roll with the LGBT,” Spice said.

This is not the first time Morris has expressed her support for the LGBTQ community. In August, the country singer made headlines when she called out Brittany Aldean, the wife of country singer Jason Aldean, for making transphobic comments on social media.

Aldean captioned a video of her before and after makeup on Twitter, “I’d like to express my gratitude to my parents for not changing my gender during my tomboy phase. I adore my girly life.”

Morris responded to Aldean by writing, “Isn’t it so simple to not be a scumbag human? Insurrection Barbie, sell your clip-ins and go.”

Brittany Aldean later appeared on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show, where the conservative political commentator referred to Morris as a “lunatic.” Morris retaliated by selling a T-shirt that said, “Lunatic country person.”

She raised more than $100,000 in sales for organisations that support transgender people.

Morris stated in September to the Los Angeles Times, “I don’t have feelings of kindness when it comes to humans being made fun of for questioning their identity, especially kids.”

“When they go low, we go high,” Morris explained to the outlet. “Any form of resistance is not carried out with kind words. And there are a lot worse names I could’ve used for (Brittany Aldean).”

Morris went on to say that “In country music, I despise feeling like I have to be the hall monitor for treating people like human beings. It’s draining.”

“However, there is a very insidious culture in which people feel very comfortable being transphobic, homophobic, and racist, and that they can wrap it up in a joke and no one will ever call them out on it.”
