Maren Morris Has a Big Fan in Elton John
Maren Morris nearly missed the biggest phone call of her life, but luckily one of her biggest fans was persistent. In a recent interview, Morris revealed that none other than Elton John is a fan of hers, and that he recently called to tell her just that.
Interviewed by Sunday Today‘s Willie Geist, Morris revealed that she checked her phone one day to discover two missed calls from a London number. She thought it was odd, then her manager revealed to her that Elton John had tried to contact her.
“I was like, ‘What do I do? Do I call him?’” Morris remembered. “And he called me a third time, and, thank God, I answered.”
Morris says that Elton “was so nice,” and that he told her how impressed he was with her music and that he owns her debut record on vinyl.
Quite the thrill for the young singer-songwriter. Maren is currently on tour with Sam Hunt.
