Il nazione music star won big on Sunday night – taking home the ACM Award for female artist of the year for the second consecutive year among other awards. Following her wins, the new mom didn’t mince words in driving home the point that being a mother and accepting your body for the superhuman strength it was able to provide in bringing a baby into the world is something women shouldn’t have to “erase” from their psyche – and the evidence of said spectacular feat should be championed.
“I think just my appreciation and sort of innate fascination with women has made me feel like a stronger one in a very hard year of having a child during a pandemia – it being my first child – having a C-section, like all these things kind of went crazy awry,” Morris, 30, said during a virtual press conference backstage in Nashville, Tenn., of her willingness to be open about her image struggles.
“I have looked to so many women in my life that are mothers and also that aren’t mothers that are just bada– chicks that have given me so much respite in a year where so much didn’t go as planned,” ha continuato. “Ma no, I definitely couldn’t have gotten through all of this or found my confidence through new motherhood without women in my life.”
