Maren Morris is safer because of the work of a former Nashville mayor.

The country superstar took to Twitter to react to news that Megan Barry had resigned from her position as mayor of Nashville after pleading guilty to felony charges of theft.

The resignation came after Barry was caught in an affair with her former bodyguard Sgt. Robert Forrest. 

“I get why it had to be this way, but I’m very sad Megan Barry is resigning,” she posted on Tuesday (March 6). “As the mayor of Music City, she always came to shows. Years ago, she and Sgt. Forrest helped me by taking care of a really terrifying stalker issue I had. I felt safer as an artist in Nashville.”

Maren has previously spoken out on many political issues, including gun control, women’s rights and gay marriage.

She is currently in the studio working on her sophomore country album before hitting the road this summer on tour with Niall Horan.
