Home / Music News / Maren Morris praises outgoing Nashville mayor for past help with a “stalker issue”


Amid the news that Nashville’s mayor, Megan Barry, has resigned, Maren Morris has shared her support for the politician. The “Rich” singer revealed on Twitter that Barry once helped her through a “terrifying stalker issue.”

“I get why it had to be this way, but I’m very sad Megan Barry is resigning,” Maren writes on Twitter. “As the mayor of Music City, she always came to shows. Years ago, she and Sgt. Forrest helped me by taking care of a really terrifying stalker issue I had. I felt safer as an artist in Nashville.”

The Nashville mayor resigned earlier today after she pleaded guilty to stealing thousands of dollars from the city in connection with an extramarital affair with Forrest, her bodyguard.

“It has been the honor and it has been the privilege of my entire professional life to have had the blessing of this opportunity to be your mayor. I love you, Nashville,” the former mayor writes on Twitter following her resignation. Vice Mayor David Briley will take over as mayor starting today, Tuesday.
