Maren Morris is pretty excited about the recent interview she did with Playboy.

She posted to her Instagram a quote from that interview saying, “[Marriage] taught me that I’m not always right. I’ve been doing this music thing for so long that it’s how I’m conditioned. Letting someone else in and letting him be a part of that with me has been a bigger struggle than I imagined. It’s so easy to fall in love, but to stay in love and to fall deeper into love? That’s work. It’s not giving up your stance but allowing yourself to listen. You both could be right; just because you disagree with somebody doesn’t mean they’re wrong. // @playboy.”

Maren also told Playboy what she is quite sick of, “‘What’s it like to be a woman in the music industry today?’ is the question I’m most sick of being asked. My husband is an artist as well, and no one ever asks him what it’s like to be a man in the industry today. What would he say? ‘Same as it ever was.’ I never know how to re-answer that question. I don’t know how to answer it in the first place, actually, because I don’t want to be remembered for being a great female artist. I would like to be known as a great artist.”

Morris even gave her thoughts on her album’s title track “Girl” and being in love and sharing her life with her husband Ryan Hurd, “I learned that it’s not a weakness to be vulnerable with somebody else, to share all your light and your darkness with them, to trust that they won’t trample your heart or judge you. That was such a learning curve for me, because I used to think if you were vulnerable and admitted how much you needed someone, you were being submissive.”
