Morris is powerful and poignant, yet in a more subtle way than some of her counterparts. She could easily fully indulge her powerful voice, but chooses to keep things simple. Less can be more. I have no clue where Morris is headed, but thought she was worth mentioning as a TN artist making moves outside Nashville
