Preamble The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This General Public License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too. When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things. To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it. For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights. We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software. Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors' reputations. Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all. The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow. GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION 0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below, refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program" means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you". Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the Program (independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on what the Program does. Maren Morris | For The Country Record | Page 2

Maren Morris ‘My Church’ – Single Review

Maren-Morris

Maren Morris has been making quite a lot of waves lately, with her self-titled debut EP receiving a great deal of praise from critics and industry peers alike. The Texas firebrand released her EP, which received endorsements from country superstars like Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley, and Charles Kelley (of Lady Antebellum), late last year and has been on a roll ever since. Unlike the majority of current mainstream country songs which tend to find the narrators touting their so-called Christian faith, all the while boasting about sinful lifestyles and activities, the narrator in “My Church” isn’t trying to find middle ground or even trying to pass off as a lukewarm Christian. Instead, the narrator is totally upfront and honest about her not-so-faith-filled lifestyle, explaining that her religion or church is country radio.

Maren Morris – EP Review

maren

Up until a few weeks ago, the majority of the public had never heard of Maren Morris. She seems to have just suddenly burst onto the country music scene with her debut EP. There was a LOT of buzz around the new artist, from industry peers and critics alike, boasting that she was the next big thing in country music and on and on about how truly amazing she was. All the positive buzz is actually what led me to listen to her EP.

Alas, it seems that we’ve all been duped. I hate to do this, but I’m afraid I’m going to have to burst a few bubbles. First off, Maren Morris isn’t a country artist, at least not according to her debut EP. Second, the self-titled EP only has one song that falls into the semi-country category, the rest are pure, unadulterated pop songs. Third, she will definitely not be the next legend in country music, unless her music changes drastically. Honestly, this EP wouldn’t be as big of a disappointment as it is if it weren’t for the fact that there was a huge buzz about it, building it up.
