Kylie Rae Harris' 'Twenty Years From Now' Offers Heartfelt Message For Her Daughter: Exclusive

By Billboard

Maren Morris visited the Watch What Happens Live clubhouse on Tuesday night (March 19), where she shared some personal details about her wedding to singer-songwriter Ryan Hurd, as well as detailed her failed attempts at reality singing competitions like American Idol and The Voice.

“I feel like a stalker!” Morris admitted when Andy Cohen asked about her vows. “It really was in defense. He said, ‘I promise to love you through everything...the blah blah blah to this. Watching Real Housewives to this.’”

She says Hurd often watches Real Housewives of Beverly Hills with her but will never admit it. “He likes to pretend he doesn’t, but he somehow knows all of the information of the inner workings of what’s going on,” she said.

A big fan of the series, Morris confessed that she only watches Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. “That’s my home base. I think if you’re going to commit and watch for this many seasons, I can really only be loyal to one,” she explained. “There’s too many stories to keep straight, even on this one.”

One fan called in to ask how Morris feels about being rejected from American Idol and The Voice while both shows have had contestants covering her songs.

“That’s not even it. I was rejected from America’s Got Talent. There was a ton that I didn’t make it to. Thank God!” she exclaimed. “Now people cover my songs for their auditions on those shows. Not only is it really nice to have my song on a national television show, I get to collect the check and have some sweet revenge.”

One of the songs contestants have covered includes “The Middle,” Morris’ collaboration with Zedd that saw massive chart success last year. When Cohen asked if she ever chatted with the pop stars who originally recorded the song like Demi Lovato and Camila Cabello, she said she came into the project very late in the game.

“I do know that Demi and Camila chose other songs to do at that time. It wasn’t like Zedd rejected them, they’re huge stars,” she said. “I come from the country world. I’m a songwriter but on this song, I just knew it was such a hit. I didn’t care that I wasn’t a writer on it. Thank God I made the right decision.”
