Maren Morris Takes Over Jimmy Kimmel Live As a Guest Host

Maren Morris added to her resume this week as she stepped in as a guest host on Jimmy Kimmel Live! 

Jimmy Kimmel took the summer off to spend time with his family, he shared, “There’s nothing wrong, I’m healthy, my family’s healthy, I just need a couple of months off.”

So, while he’s off on summer vacation, the show must go on – and on it goes with guest hosts like Modern Family’s Julie Bowen, Will and Grace‘s Sean Hayes, and many more to be announced.

But this week kicked off with Maren in the host chair, and she did a great job…which started with a laugh filled monologue, that mixed her comedic talents along with her singing abilities…

During her guest hosting duties on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Maren got to interview one of her idols – Willie Nelson.

Maren also got to chat with Real Housewife Sutton Strackle

and Megan Stalter from Hacks – one of Maren’s current favorite shows appeared on JKL! with Maren as host.

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
