No joke… Maren Morris basically got door after door slammed in her face. How sweet must that revenge taste?
“I think about all of the freaking talent shows I’ve tried out for in my life and I’m so glad I didn’t make any of them,” she tells Rolling Stone Country. “It’s full circle, because I was rejected from The Voice. I was rejected from American Idol — and I’m happier for it now.”
MM has to be fairly content with how things played out. She got to go about things at her own pace and wasn’t under any Idol or Voice pressure. Her current hit ‘Girl’ is pushing the Top 20.
Morris isn’t the only country star that got denied from American Idol.
- Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott tried out for AI twice and never made it past the first round.
- Kane Brown was told the show didn’t need another Scotty McCreery.
- Chris Lane and his twin brother Corey got a bit of unwanted publicity, as they auditioned as a rap-duo. A terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad rap duo.
