The country duo say they’re impressed with all of the fantastic music that’s out right now — but perhaps none more than Morris.
“She’s [Morris] killing it at the moment. We’re so proud of her,” John tells the PEOPLE/Entertainment Weekly Network. “She’s been in town a few years, and I remember the first time we heard her sing — she’s a very understated human — and we saw her perform karaoke one night, and we were like, what the hell, this girl is ridiculous. And fast forward [to now], and she’s just blowing it up.”
“She’s in it for all the right reasons. Not only is she beautiful, she’s talented, she loves what she does, [but] she’s got a lot of heart. It’s only the beginning for her.”
