Music as a Religion? Maren Morris Might Think So.

In Maren Morris’ ‘My Church’ she uses traditionally religious rhetoric to communicate the depth of her feelings about music and songwriting. In an interview with Genius, Morris described it as ‘a road song’ saying, “I wrote it in a place of inspiration. I get a lot of my songwriting done while driving around Nashville—sometimes it comes to me that way. I tried to write about that feeling, that connection.”

The chorus of the country chart topper sings,

Can I get a hallelujah
Can I get an amen

Feels like the Holy Ghost running through ya
When I play the highway FM
I find my soul revival
Singing every single verse
Yeah I guess that’s my church

Check out the song, and see about the reference to music as religion for yourself.
