Maren, who moved to Nashville a decade ago, made her decision after calling out the country music scene’s inadequacies over racism, misogyny and gender representation.

She candidly told the LA Times of the industry’s failings and said: “I thought I’d like to burn it to the ground and start over.

“But it’s burning itself down without my help.”

Maren continued: “I’m trying to mature here and realize I can just walk away from the parts of this that no longer make me happy.”

“Being one of the few women that had any success on country radio, everything you do is looked at under a microscope.

“You’re scrutinized more than your male peers, even when you’re doing well. So I’ve had to clear all of that out of my head this year and just write songs.

“A lot of the drama within the community, I’ve chosen to step outside out of it.”

During her career, Maren has scooped four number one singles on Billboard’s Country Music Chart.

She was also a six-time winner at the Country Music Association Awards.


Maren recently defied the wrath of online trolls as she stripped to a snazzy zebra-print bikini.

Off-stage, the star is a mom of one.

She shares two-year-old son Hayes with Ryan Hurd, has hit back at trolls in the past who have left negative comments under her sexy pictures.

In the caption, the My Church singer made a sly dig at the trolls who have previously left body-shaming comments under her more revealing posts.

“A camera self-timer is a useful tool for a**holes,” she wrote.

It came after she shared a huge update over a “tough” choice for her son.

The star was asked about her pets on X, formerly known as Twitter, where she shared the unfortunate news.

Over the weekend, a fan inquired about Maren’s pets, writing: “How are the pups doing?”

The country singer replied: “Pancake got [sic] rehomes because he was getting a bit aggressive so now June is our girl.”

Pancake is a bulldog puppy the hitmaker introduced to her fans back in 2018, while June is a larger white dog.


Maren has always kept things candid with her fans and recently told how she suffered an “identity crisis” while in the midst of post partum depression.

She discussed her battle with postpartum depression during an appearance on Sunday Today with Willie Geist.

During the segment, the To Hell and Back artist opened up about having her son, Hayes, during the Covid-19 pandemic.

She revealed: “I think a lot of identity crises happened there,” explaining, “Not just being a new parent and a new mother and dealing with postpartum depression for the first time, and reeling from that.

“Knowing my worth without someone clapping for me.”
