Liberal country star Maren Morris ended up skipping the red carpet entrance at the CMA Awards show after attacking singer Jason Aldean’s wife Brittany over a post that she claimed was transphobic.

The 32-year-old country music star did not walk the red carpet at the 2022 Country Music Association Awards show along with the Aldeans and other country stars, despite being nominated for an Album of the Year for her recent album “Humble Quest,” Page Six reported in a piece published Thursday.

The “My Church” hitmaker was eventually spotted at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville with her husband Ryan Hurd just before the Album of the Year category was announced, the outlet noted.

After the winner, Luke Combs, was announced for his album “Growin’ Up,” Hurd and Morris were seen leaving the Tennessee venue.

Morris previously said she was thinking of  skipping this year’s award show because she wasn’t “comfortable going” after she got into a public spat on social media with Aldean’s wife, as The Daily Wire previously reported.

“Honestly, I haven’t decided if I’m gonna go,” the “Rich” hitmaker replied. “I’m very honored that my record is nominated. But I don’t know if I feel [at] home there right now.”

“So many people I love will be in that room, and maybe I’ll make a game-time decision and go,” she added. “But as of right now, I don’t feel comfortable going.”

The comments come after Morris attacked Brittany Aldean over a reel she shared on Instagram in promotion of her new clothing line, “Don’t Tread On Our Kids.”

“I’d really like to thank my parents for not changing my gender when I went through my tomboy phase,” Brittany captioned her post. “I love this girly life.”

Aldean responded to his wife’s post by writing in the comments, “Lmao!! I’m glad they didn’t too, cause you and I wouldn’t have worked out.”

Brittany then came under attack by several stars, including Morris, who suggested that the singer’s wife keep her mouth shut, as previously reported.

“It’s so easy to, like, not be a scumbag human?” Maren tweeted. “Sell your clip-ins and zip it, Insurrection Barbie.”

Brittany released a long statement explaining, “Advocating for the genital mutilation of children under the disguise of love and calling it ‘gender affirming care’ is one of the worst evils.” The entirety of her statement can be read here. She later posted a message on social media that her words were “taken out of context.”
