Maren Morris recently missed — and then received — a phone call from music royalty. She recently told Sunday Today‘s Willie Geist that she noticed she missed a couple calls from a South London phone number. The third time the call came in she answered and it was none other than Sir Elton John. He reached out to tell Maren that he is a "huge fan," and that he owns her debut album, Hero, on vinyl.
According to Maren, Elton said, “‘I just I love what you’re doing, and I hope that we get to meet in the future soon.'”
Maren said she tried to take the call outside to where her boyfriend, fellow artist Ryan Hurd, was to have a witness to the call but before she could make it out the door the call was over.
Maren is nearing the top of the charts with "Craving You," her duet with Thomas Rhett.
She is currently on the road with Sam Hunt. The 15 in a 30 tour plays in Missouri, Illinois and Ohio this weekend.
