Contributions to country radio: Along with showing indie artists that they can make it on radio, Maren Morris brings a soulful country sound to radio. Chris Stapleton has been the male trailblazer of this genre, bringing his soulful version of country music to radio with "Nobody to Blame" and "Tennessee Whiskey." Morris has a more pop influenced sound, but has equal soul and country in her debut EP and single. She shows artists that they can have influences outside of country music and incorporate that into their music without totally betraying the country sound and lyrics that are supposed to be in a country song. "My Church" will not only let people know the kind of songs that country radio should be full of, but is also good music. It's a song that people will blast in their cars, but also appreciate lyrically. It's a very solid addition to country radio.
