Maren Morris is the new cover star for Women's Health, so it only felt appropriate to hear the country chart-topper open up about her mental health in the issue.
On Tuesday (May 21), the magazine's cover story hit the blogosphere and it sees the 29-year-old talk about the impact that Lady Gaga's A Star Is Born had on her and her husband Ryan Hurd. Similar to Mother Monster's character, Morris got her start as a songwriter and later married another singer/songwriter, so it was only natural that she was going to envision some common parallels. "I had no idea what I was getting myself into," she admitted to the publication of watching the hit film. "I had to go to therapy. Not the substance abuse part, but there were things that happened to [Lady Gaga's] character that happened to me. That movie rocked us both. We were like, 'We can never end up like this. Cool?'"
Morris also went on to admit that she still deals with anxiety prior to hitting the stage, a battle that she endures every night of her current "Girl: The World Tour." "It's stage fright. Some parts of it never go away,” she explained. "When I get out there and relax into it, I'm fine. It’s a gift to sing well and make people emotional, so I don't take it for granted."
