“This is one of the most exciting things for me personally just because I’ve always loved fashion and I’ve loved pushing the envelope, and I just feel like taking it to the next level with Wilhelmina,” she told People. “For me to be their first country music signing of the agency is incredible. Bridging that fashion and country music gap is such an amazing step forward for them and our genre. And I think it will certainly bring country music and its artists into the conversation with the high-fashion world.”

Maren told People that the partnership will involve photoshoots for fashion magazines and fashion companies to styling for red carpets and upcoming album artwork.

“I think it’s important to establish you don’t need to look like this person to believe you’re worthwhile and beautiful,” she said. “I think it’s been really inspiring to see my fans and young girls and girls my age look at me as someone to model after—you doesn’t need to look perfect or sound perfect.”
