Maren Morris recently appeared as a guest judge on season 15 of RuPaul's Drag Race.

While she was there examining the drag queens' looks, outfits, and acting capabilities, the My Church singer spoke in a post-episode Untucked clip, giving an emotional address.

"Coming from country music and its relationship with LGBTQ+ members, I just want to say I’m sorry," she said. "And I love you guys for making me feel like a brave voice in country music. So, I just thank you guys so much for inspiring me."

Following applause, Morris added, "I’m gonna cry, I need to go."

The RuPaul's Drag Race Instagram account later shared the Untucked clip with the caption, "We love an ally! So grateful @marenmorris stopped by #Untucked to support our Queens with this heartfelt message."

Last year, Maren Morris raised over $100,000 in just one day after announcing a new line of t-shirts on Friday, 2 September, to support the Trans Lifeline and GLAAD Transgender Media Program.

She shared on Twitter, “Maren Morris: Lunatic Country Music Person”, and the phone number for the Peer Support and Crisis Hotline for trans youth: 877-565-8860.

Morris released the t-shirts a week after her online feud with country singer Jason Aldean’s influencer wife, Brittany Aldean, over alleged transphobic comments. 

The t-shirt references the moniker Tucker Carlson gave to “the fake country music singer” on his Fox News Show when he interviewed Aldean.

Morris has also shared her support for LGBTQ+ communities at other times, such as performing at Miley Cyrus' Pride Concert. 

"I've got a lot of guests," Cyrus previously joked on Instagram while announcing the concert event. "A lot of #Pride. AND A LOT OF WARDROBE CHANGES ... We brought A LOT of LOVE!"

She later captioned, “This feels like a peaceful protest. There are laws endangering the lgbtq+ community all around the country and even here in my home state - We can’t stop and we won’t stop doing everything in our power to create the changes we want to see not just here but AROUND THE WORLD! You’ve gotta start somewhere! So I’ve begun in Nashville, TN!”
