Maren Morris is taking on "shaming" Twitter followers who are judging her clothing choices and appearance.

The country singer has been catching flak for her midriff-baring fashion choices, as well as a pair of pants with strategically placed slits she wore to perform at Madison Square Garden in New York last week.

Morris decided to troll critics of her style by tweeting a photo of herself with fiancé and fellow artist Ryan Hurd that read, "Hey, while prudes are complaining about my clothes, let's make babies." She posted the same photo and message to Instagram.

About half an hour later, she added, "Honestly, I'm over the shaming that goes on here. I'm a self-sufficient woman who loves her body. Get over it, thanks."

RaeLynn chimed in and offered Morris words of encouragement, as well as an anecdote about an insulin pump she wears to manage her diabetes: "You're beautiful, everyone else is stupid. I had someone judge my insulin pump. People don't even understand."

Brothers Osborne also showed support for Morris, tweeting, "This is why we should be required to take an ass-hole test before being allowed access to the internet. What is wrong with these people?"

Jason Aldean had the last country disc to go to the top with "They Don't Know" on October 1, 2016.

Rhett scored his best sales week ever for an album. His previous high was 63,000 with "Tangled Up."

Kelsea Ballerini celebrated her bachelorette weekend in Las Vegas. She shared a video of herself on board a plane goofing around and singing, “I’m ready to party with the best of ’em!”

She shared a photo of herself and her squad, and they all hit Jennifer Lopez’s All I Have residency at the AXIS auditorium at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.

Ballerini posted a shot of herself with Lopez that she captioned, “Don’t be fooled by the rock(s) that I got,” and also posted another shot of herself smiling and looking content, with her engagement ring prominently on display.
Ballerini got engaged to Australian musician Morgan Evans on Christmas Day in 2016. The couple are planning to marry toward the end of the year, and they’re using the same wedding planner who did Carrie Underwood‘s wedding.


Kenny Chesney continues to do his part to help provide relief from Hurricane Irma’s devastation. This time it was by helping a pair of teen brothers reunite with their mother after their home on the island of St. Johns was destroyed.
Jah-Haile Bruce and Jahbioseh Bruce survived the storm on the floor of a bathroom shower as the hurricane raged through the house.

Catching a boat sent to pick up evacuees after the hurricane, the brothers found their way to St. Croix, in hope of catching a flight to Philadelphia to meet up with their mother.

With no commercial flights available, Chesney stepped in, flying the teens to Philadelphia on his private jet. Anonymously.

CNN did some digging to find out that it was indeed Chesney who provided the private flight for the teens, who were beyond grateful. 

Chesney’s heartfelt good deed follows the singer’s recent formation of the Love for Love City Foundation, started to provide disaster relief for both the U.S. and British Virgin Islands.
