Several years ago, Maren Morris tried out for American Idol and didn’t even make past the first cut. In retrospect, she’s glad she didn’t take the reality show route to fame.
She tells Chelsea Handler on an appearance on her Netflix show, “I’m actually really happy I didn’t make it onto any of the shows I tried out for because I took a much longer road, but it’s on my terms now.”
Maren’s episode with Chelsea streams today (12/15/16) on Netflix. (Rolling Stone)
