"Country Star Maren Morris Celebrates Self-Love with Empowering Cover of "Dancing With Myself""

Maren Morris has put her own spin on Billy Idol’s classic hit “Dancing With Myself” just in time for Singles Awareness Day. The country singer has reimagined the 1981 new wave anthem, giving it a fresh sound and a new message.

Morris’ cover of “Dancing With Myself” is a celebration of self-love and independence. The song, originally written by Idol and Tony James, was inspired by Idol’s experiences of going out alone and dancing by himself in New York City clubs. Morris’ version takes on a new meaning, as she sings about embracing being single and enjoying her own company.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Morris shared her thoughts on the song and its relevance to Singles Awareness Day. “I’ve always loved this song and its message of not needing anyone else to have a good time,” she said. “Especially on a day like Singles Awareness Day, it’s important to remember that being single doesn’t mean you’re alone or missing out on anything. It’s about enjoying your own company and celebrating that, instead of stigmatizing it.”

Morris’ cover of “Dancing With Myself” stays true to the original’s new wave sound, but adds a touch of country flair with her powerful vocals. The music video, directed by Harper Smith, features Morris dancing alone in a dimly lit room, surrounded by disco balls and neon lights. The visuals perfectly capture the song’s message of finding joy in being alone.

The release of Morris’ cover comes on the heels of her recent single “Better Than We Found It,” which addresses social and political issues in America. The singer has been using her platform to speak out on important issues and promote self-love and acceptance.

Fans of Morris have been eagerly anticipating new music from the singer, and her cover of “Dancing With Myself” is a welcome surprise. The song is now available on all streaming platforms, and the music video can be viewed on Morris’ YouTube channel.

As for Singles Awareness Day, Morris hopes her cover of “Dancing With Myself” will inspire others to embrace their independence and enjoy their own company. “Being single shouldn’t be seen as a negative thing,” she said. “It’s a time to focus on yourself, your own happiness, and your own journey. And that’s something worth celebrating.”
