Kelsea Ballerini tells KIAI that she dislikes her husband, Morgan’s, board shorts.“I love him so much, but he thinks that board shorts, Hawaiian swimming trunks are pants, not cute-casual, could be gym shorts, but like Hawaiian print and neon.

Maren Morris tells Billboard magazine that she received negative feedback from fans for recording the pop song ”The Middle” with Zedd. ”I’ve gotten s*** for genre-blending from the get-go, but after the 2017 Grammys when I performed with Alicia Keys, I felt like, “We can do this.” The amazing thing about country fans is that they’re loyal, and my music has always been a little bit of everything.”
Zedd says; ”Maren is so much more than just country. And I’ve hated how people have put me in boxes my whole career, like, “Hey, you’re an EDM guy doing pop.” No, I’m a musician who enjoys making music. I made metal for 10 years, and before that I made classical music. Literally, the first time I ever heard Maren’s voice was on the demo for “The Middle.” But to me, this was just about who sounds the best.”
Lauren Alaina tells Sounds like Nashville that she never tours without adult onesies to sleep in. “I always have to have a onesie because we’re still all on the same bus…and if you know me you know I’m obsessed with onesies, but it’s like a real thing. Like, I sleep in them. I sleep in onesies because I get really cold at night and I do not like to be cold. The boys are all like, hot-natured, and they’re men, you know? I’m like the girl on the bus that’s freezing, so I’ll wear onesies. I cannot be on the bus without a onesie. If I forget it, which I don’t…if I did forget it, it’s on my packing list. I have a list and it’s like third on the list… a onesie. But if I forgot it, we’d be going to Target and getting one. I mean, that’s how crazy I am about having a onesie..”

And, with all the nostalgia of everything right now, we know we’re essentially a pop band.”
