Maren Morris declines to walk the CMA Awards red carpet in 2022, citing discomfort.

The country singer, who is up for album of the year, sat off Wednesday's 2022 CMA Awards red carpet but returned halfway through the ceremony.

Maren Morris decided not to attend the red carpet at the 2022 CMA Awards despite being nominated for one of the night's most prestigious awards.

Morris admitted to having mixed emotions about attending the CMA Awards and frequently felt "awkward" at such gatherings during her interview Times.

At that moment, she admitted, "Honestly, I haven't decided if I will attend. "Being nominated for my record is a great honor for me.

But I don't know if I now feel at home there. There will be so many people I care about in that room,

so I may decide to go at the last minute. However, as of now, I don't feel confident going."

She said, "Last year, I believe my sadness was more incredible. Some evenings are enjoyable. Other times, I'm simply bursting out of my skin.

I'm awkward. Thus, I could improve at those gatherings. But this time, the idea of staying home makes me feel somewhat calm."
