Country music sensation Maren Morris has been re-energised thanks to a recent backstage meeting with Bruce Springsteen.
The My Church singer's music director is E Street Band star Max Weinberg's drum technician and he managed to get Maren up close and personal to her hero at a gig.
Morris had always admired The Boss from afar, but she was stoked to actually meet him and land a VIP spot for the show.
"I'd never seen him live until recently," she tells Rolling Stone magazine. "We got to see Bruce's guitars underneath the stage and watch the show from, like, two feet away. I could see the label on his jeans.
"I was like, 'Oh my God, he's so good looking, he does not age'.
"After seeing him play for four hours, I was like, 'I have no excuse to perform an off show'."
