Maren Morris is giving us a peek at how it's done, by appearing topless in Playboy just days after saying country music needs to embrace sexuality.

Stripping down to nothing but her red jeans and cowboy hat, the country singer is showing off more than we've ever seen of her before.

Sharing two sexy shots, Morris teased her upcoming spread with the caption, "Strip it down. something with @playboy is coming next week."

Staying topless, but adding an extra layer, Morris also showed another snap from the set wearing printed cowboy boots, and clutching her bare chest.

Looking playfully at the camera, the 29-year-old star shows off her curves while seductively positioning her body sideways on a chair.

It appears Morris stays topless most -- if not all -- of the shoot.

The photographer, Harper Smith, shared another snap from her spread, showing her bare chested and in black and white.

These pics come days after the singer spoke out about stereotypes in country music.

Morris told BBC, she wished the country genre would celebrate sexuality the way they do in R&B and hip-hop.

"The stereotype is you've either got to be this religious, virginal conservative, or the wronged woman burning the house down," she said.

Adding, "People in pop and R&B are confident and sexy and sexual, and they're celebrating it - so why don't we, in country, write these songs?"

Morris, who admits she grew up listening to Chaka Khan and Beyoncé as much as country legends like Shania Twain and Dolly Parton, said that's why she didn't hold back with her newest album, GIRL.

"It's just a really fun, sexy song about wanting to jump someone's bones," she told BBC. "Real life stuff!"

But with risks, comes backlash.

The country star's already getting slammed by some for her provocative Playboy shots and risqué lyrics, but she's not sweating it.

Taking to Twitter, Morris addressed the haters, saying, "Some can slut-shame me for my lyrics about sex, and you can put me in your little box, but I just want to live and love."

Adding, "I recently accepted myself and will put these photos in a frame because I'll never get this moment back."

Morris' Playboy spread appears in the magazine's "Gender + Sexuality" edition and drops next week.
