The singer, who is married to fellow country artist Ryan Hurd, is not one to shy away from showing skin. At last week’s CMT Music Awards, Morris looked like a golden goddess in her 1970s-inspired mini dress.
But don’t expect Girl to be much like its predecessor, as Morris says she’s ready to try something slightly different. Because while the latter was a record centered on independence and breaking free from the stereotypes bequeathed upon women in country, Girl is more of an acknowledgment of her own personal journey toward embracing her vulnerabilities.
GIRL, out now via Columbia Nashville, has shattered the record for the largest ever debut streaming week for a country album by a woman. The album debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200, #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and continues to receive rave reviews. The album also features history – making title track GIRL” which had the highest debut on Billboard’s Country Streaming Songs chart by a female artist and the highest weekly streams by a female country artist ever.
It all began when Maren Morris was gifted a guitar at the age of 12. She began singing in local clubs and eventually released her own independent album at the age of just 15. She then released five songs on her self titled EP in August 2015, where lead single ‘My Church’ gained 2.5 million streams on Spotify in a month.

I have been to a few of the Country 102.5 Street Parties before and this one was the most disappointing. The headliner, Maren Morris, played 5 songs total. People before her played for longer. Huge disappointment.
The singer-songwriter’s major label debut peaked at No. 1 on the country charts and No. 5 on the Billboard 200, thanks largely to the smash single “My Church.” Morris earned a nomination for Best New Artist at this year’s Grammys, losing out to 30 Under 30 alum Chance the Rapper.
As a companion to the EP, Apple Music will also release a short film that takes fans behind the scenes in the studio as Maren shares the meaning behind each song.
Morris leads this year’s list of Country Music Association Awards nominees with six nominations— Album Of The Year, Female Vocalist Of The Year, Single Of The Year, Song Of The Year, Music Video Of The Year, and Musical Event Of The Year. This is Morris’ second time leading the CMA nominee list in four years, and the strongest showing by a female nominee since Miranda Lambert garnered nine nominations in 2014.
The Middle” revealed that Morris’s voice had a natural home beyond country music, but to be fair, so did her debut album, which showed how versatile her vocal approach is — capable of delivering aspirational pop, novel country and also impressive shades of R&B. Her voice is thin, but it’s not brittle; it cuts through a variety of production styles easily.
However, Morris also says the bullishness of contemporary cultural discourse tends to disillusion her, as we live in “such a noisy, chaotic, bullshit world, where we can’t hear an opposing opinion without completely shutting down.” That said, there are certain things she’s not willing to back down about, especially when it comes to embracing country music fans of different backgrounds and identities.
Later in 2016 Morris released her second radio single, ‘ś80s Mercedes,’ť which reached PLATINUM status by the RIAA, just before she tied for the most nominations with FIVE at the 50th Annual CMA Awards, including Album of the Year (HERO), Female Vocalist of the Year, Single of the Year (‘śMy Church’ť), Song of the Year (‘śMy Church’ť) and New Artist of the Year which she won, marking her first CMA Award. She was tapped by Billboard Magazine to receive the Billboard ‘BREAKTHROUGH ARTIST’ Award at the 11th annual Billboard Women in Music Gala as well as being awarded the Breakthrough Artist Award by the Music Business Association at Music Biz 2017.
Morris has once again begun a new year with a roar. In early 2019 Morris released to the world her brand-new song, ‘śGIRL,’ť while simultaneously announcing her headlining GIRL: THE WORLD TOUR which kicks off March 9 in Chicago, the same weekend that Morris’ sophomore major label album, GIRL, releases. The headlining world tour is slated for 40+ dates across the globe including stops in the U.K., Australia and New Zealand.
Morris’ first crossover hit was swift. She recorded her vocals in Nashville alongside EDM artist and producer Zedd only weeks before the song debuted — because Demi Lovato, Camila Cabello and Anne-Marie had all been considered for the spot previously. In fact, the duo Grey admit that they had no idea who Morris was prior to hearing her powerful vocals.
That said, it would be a lie to say that the past few years hasn’t seen Morris evolve from a relatively-unknown songwriter to a mainstream radio heavy-hitter who has, most certainly, become the center of pop culture’s attention. As someone who’s embraced a genre-bending sound — look no further than collaborations with the likes of Alicia Keys, as well as Zedd and Grey on their hit single, “The Middle” — Morris has built up a diverse fanbase that includes everyone from old-school country fans to progressive, far-left pop listeners. And while a few narrow-minded critics have labeled her embrace of pop as ” pandering ” to a wider audience, Morris’ work is far from that. If anything, she’s just putting a new twist on what she knows, as a twenty-something who grew up listening to everyone from Shania Twain to Lauryn Hill.
Named Who to Watch” by Huffington Post, The Tennessean and radio personality Bobby Bones’ Class of 2018, Kassi also caught the attention of country superstar Keith Urban. Describing her as such a unique, original creature,” Urban featured Kassi on his song Drop Top” for his latest album Graffiti U.
And as you might expect with all things Nashville, it made Morris … moderately successful. Country music has been clogged with dullish gentlemen for the last few years, and while Morris recorded some of the genre’s most promising music, some good it did her. She had a handful of hits — the cheeky Rich,” the desperate I Could Use a Love Song,” the howling My Church” — that tartly underscored just how ideologically robust the rest of the genre wasn’t.
They re-released her EP and selected the song My Church” to be the lead single. All of this happened in just a few months! By 2016, the song gained popularity and recognition on a national scale.
Many of her most forceful vocal performances on Girl” are far from country music, like the up-tempo soul number RSVP,” which with a few tweaks could easily make sense for, say, Monica or SZA. One of the finest moments is The Bones,” which nods to the Chainsmokers and Daya hit Don’t Let Me Down,” and features some of this album’s sturdiest songwriting.
When Cassadee Pope joined Maren Morris on Morris’ Girl: The World Tour , she was grateful for the opportunity to perform in front of larger crowds than she could draw on her own, at this stage in her career. Although Morris and Pope are good friends, on and off stage, Pope proudly “poached” some of Morris’ fans, who quickly became fans of Pope’s music as well.
This just doesn’t seem fair. I will always love you and the songs and albums I was lucky to make with you, Busbee. Rest well, my sweet friend. Women in country music are offered two potential paths, says Maren Morris.
Morris broke into the pop mainstream in 2018 with “The Middle,” an effervescent dance-pop tune she recorded with Zedd and Grey Reaching number five on the Hot 100, “The Middle” introduced Morris to new audiences, who were then given “Rich” – one of the album’s glitziest, cleverest songs – as a belated single from Hero ; it went to four Country Airplay, eight on Country Songs.

When Morris does lean in to country music’s past, it’s to lightly echo Dolly Parton’s chipper anthem 9 to 5” on All My Favorite People,” which features Brothers Osborne singing with an arched eyebrow, as if performing a Hee Haw” sketch. It’s a disruptive way to pay homage.
At the 2016 Country Music Association Awards, for example, she nabbed an impressive five nominations. It was an impressive feat in and of itself. As E! News put it, “How many artists can say that they were nominated for Single, Song, Female Vocalist and Album of the Year, as well as New Artist of the Year, in their first year on the country charts?” Indeed, not even country starlets Taylor Swift or Carrie Underwood had managed that. The following year, Morris won the Music Business Association’s prestigious breakthrough artist award , and received four Grammy nominations , winning for best solo country performance Her sophomore album , Girl, dominated the awards show circuit once again with five Grammy nods.
