Announced in December 2017, Morris (already a Grammy winner) was made the Honorary Chairwoman for the Texas Music Project – an organization that actively supported her talent at a young age. Morris had spent many a night playing Lone Star State honky-tonks and writing her own brand of music well before making her move to a larger stage in Nashville, Tennessee. The Texas Music Project was proud to have her as an ambassador for the work that they do.

Following in the footsteps of fellow Texan Kelly Clarkson, Morris had looked to market her talents in the reality singing competition scene. She auditioned for two popular mainstream television shows but had been declined by both. However, she didn’t let that stop her, and by 2016, contestants of those very shows sang her massive hit “My Church” as part of their performance for the judges.
