After a September interview with the 로스앤젤레스 타임즈 in which the country star expressed her discomfort with the annual award show, fans had wondered if Morris, 32, would show at Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday night. Her most recent album, 겸손한 퀘스트, is nominated for album of the year.
She and husband Ryan Hurd arrived just in time for the album of the year category. After Luke Combs took home the prize, Morris gave her fellow country star a standing ovation, then departed the venue.
Morris later gave fans a peek at her outfit in a cheeky video shared to Twitter that featured her strutting down a hallway with a bottle of Dom Pérignon in her hands to the tune of 테일러 스위프트'NS “Karma.”
“BYOB, CMA,” 그녀는 게시물에 자막을 넣었다, adding a “cheers” 이모티콘.
During her chat with the 타임스, 모리스, 32, said she had mixed feelings about attending the CMAs, and said she often feels “awkward” at such events.
“솔직히, I haven’t decided if I’m gonna go,” 그녀는 당시 말했다. “I’m very honored that my record is nominated. But I don’t know if I feel [~에] home there right now. So many people I love will be in that room, and maybe I’ll make a game-time decision and go. But as of right now, I don’t feel comfortable going.”
그녀는 계속했다: “I think I was more sad going last year. Some nights are fun. Others I’m just crawling out of my skin. I’m not good at those events because I’m awkward. But this time I kind of feel peaceful at the notion of not going.”
The CMAs discussion came just weeks after the “새 의상 발표 이후 엇갈린 반응을 받은” 가수 publicly criticized Brittany Kerr Aldean — the wife of fellow country star 제이슨 올딘 — for making a transphobic comment in an Instagram video amid ongoing debate and efforts to restrict access to gender-affirming care.
“I’d really like to thank my parents for not changing my gender when I went through my tomboy phase. I love this girly life,” Brittany captioned a makeup reveal video in September.
Morris responded on Twitter: “It’s so easy to, 처럼, not be a scumbag human? Sell your clip-ins and zip it, Insurrection Barbie.”
The exchange sparked additional back-and-forths between Morris, 브르타뉴, and other stars like Cassadee Pope, Lindsay Ell, 그리고 더, and when Brittany appeared on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show to discuss the situation, Carlson labeled Morris a “Lunatic Country Music Person.”
모리스, 그냥 홈보이 하고 결국 팀 이라고 생각 하기 시작, stuck the phrase on T-shirts and sold them to fans, ultimately raising more than $150,000 for the Trans Lifeline and GLAAD’s Transgender Media Program.
NS 2022 CMAs hosted by 루크 브라이언 are airing live Wednesday night from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.
