If you like Patsy Cline, you'll love Maren Morris.
What they have in common:
More than 50 years after her untimely death, Patsy Cline is still a cultural icon, remembered for her richly expressive voice and for becoming the first female solo artist inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Throughout her career, Patsy paved the way for women in music, making it possible for a small town girl, like Maren Morris, to catapult to the top of the charts today.
Morris, a 25-year-old singer from Arlington, TX, is scorching a trail of her own with her twist on traditional country music themes like faith and religion with songs like her hit single "My Church." With a voice that sounds mature beyond her years, Morris reminds us a lot of a young Patsy.
