Elton John Is A Big Fan Of Marren Morris

Maren Morris has discovered that one of her fans is a VVIP in the music world. The “My Church” singer revealed in a recent interview with the Today Show that none other than Elton John is a big fan of her country jams.

The way she found out was pretty unique as well. The 27-year-old country singer checked her phone and saw that she had “two missed calls from this South London number.” Confused, she didn’t call back, but on a third ring she picked up because her manager tipped her off that it was Sir Elton John trying to get a hold of her. “I was like, ‘What do I do? Do I call him?'” Morris explained. “And he called me a third time, and, thank God, I answered.”

When she spoke to him on the phone, John sang her praises and asked if the two could link up in the future. “[He said,] ‘I’m a huge fan of what you’re doing. And I have your record on vinyl; someone sent it to me,'” Morris revealed. “‘And I just I love what you’re doing. And I hope that we get to meet in the future soon.'”
