Maren Morris sure seems like the hottest thing going in Nashville these days, especially with the release of her newest album, Girl. That makes it all the harder to believe that there was a time when the singer-songwriter was literally shunned by television’s hottest talent shows.

The talented Texan appeared on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” and when a call-in viewer asked her what it felt like to be rejected by “American Idol” and “The Voice,” but then have her songs covered by contestants.

After Andy expressed his shock, Maren also added “America’s Got Talent” to the list of rejectors. But she then put a positive spin on the now laughable incident. “Not only is it really nice to have my song on a national television show, I get to collect the checks and have some sweet revenge,” she laughed.

Atta girl!

Maren’s star only continues to soar and her calendar reflects her success. The “Girl: The World Tour” with RaeLynn and Cassadee Pope kicked off in January and she currently has dates on her calendar through October with international stops in Germany, Switzerland, Netherlands, U.K., Canada, and Australia, and domestic shows in across the United States.

If you’re heading to one of Maren’s many tour stops this year, pay close attention to the atmosphere, specifically the smoke and bubbles. In a tweet, she confirmed that the fog is “rainforest” scented and the bubbles, cotton candy…scented, not flavored. Don’t eat the bubbles, folks.
