Morris is currently in the midst of her Girl: The World Tour,” which continues in the U.S. through November. She is set to perform at the iHeartRadio Music Festival this weekend and the Maui Songwriters Festival in December.

Over the last few years, Maren Morris has grown from largely unknown performer to one of country music’s biggest rising stars Despite being dubbed a country singer, her musical taste skates a pretty wild line between country and pop. She has put out both prosperous country and pop tracks.

Wednesday 15th November. Shepherds Bush Empire, London. Maren Morris. It’s a crisp winter evening in London Town as we look forward to another country night out with a super talented female. It’s somewhat ironic at a time when there is so much great new female country talent like Maren, Margo Price, Ashley Monroe, Angaleena Presley, Amanda Shires and Nikki Lane to name just a few that they are all so woefully recognised within the Nashville country establishment. Their loss is our gain especially as we can still see these great singer songwriters in relatively small venues.

Whitters takes the only two songs on the album she didn’t write–City Girl” and Pocket Change”–and owns them confidently. Her blithe version of City Girl,” written by the Wrights, was featured in the 2015 season of Nashville, while her interpretation of Mando Saenz’s indignant Pocket Change” gives the song a droll feminine spin.

Although Morris has worked hard for all of her achievements, she’s aware that she’s an anomaly. Because even in 2019, country music favors mostly men.

I took my first trip to Nashville when I was 16 and fell in love,” Whitters says. I immediately knew I wanted to move here.” A year later, she did. She also enrolled in college, and paid her proverbial dues as a nanny, waitress, and salon receptionist before signing with left-of-center lighthouse Carnival Music in 2012.

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.

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.

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.

Yes, Maren Morris has won a Grammy! The country singer earned four Grammy Award nominations at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards for her album ‘Hero’. The album was nominated for Best Country Album, but it was single ‘My Church’ that won Best Country Solo Performance.

Asaph, Katherine St. (March 9, 2019). “Maren Morris: Girl” Pitchfork Retrieved March 12, 2019. Morris immediately began writing and released her first album, Walk On, just three years later.

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.

Maren Morris has now released two studio albums, her album ‘Hero’ was released on 3rd June 2016, and then ‘GIRL’, dropped on 8th March 2019. Her debut ‘Hero’ reached Number 5 on the Billboard 200 chart and Number 1 on the Top Country Albums chart. Likewise, ‘GIRL’ debuted at Number 4 on the US Billboard 200, showing Maren Morris to be a country superstar.

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.

The album’s lead single ” Girl ” was released on January 18, 2019 and was described as “an upbeat, optimistic single with a strutting, indie-rock guitar sound”. The album’s first promotional single “Common” features Brandi Carlile and was released on February 8. 5 ” The Bones ” was released on February 22 as the second and final promotional single of the album. 6 On May 20, the song was sent to radios as the second single of the album.

Maren Morris enlisted the talents of Hozier for a new rendition of her current single, The Bones.” Maren co-penned the tune, which is featured on her 2019 album, Girl, with Laura Veltz and Jimmy Robbins.

At 23, Morris set aside her dreams of being an artist to pursue songwriting full-time in Nashville. She was somewhat successful, landing cuts with Kelly Clarkson and Tim McGraw. But it was when she wrote a song called My Church” that she had trouble giving it away to another artist. Morris ultimately released the song independently on Spotify, and it gained 2.5 million streams in just one month.

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.Maren Morris

But as it turned out, the allure of forming the group, a 2019 response to the 1980s outlaw country supergroup The Highwaymen, which included Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and Kris Kristofferson, at a time when female representation in country music, or perhaps more accurately, on country music radio, is at an all-time low, was too good for any of them to pass up.

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.

There are a lot of gatekeepers that just do not give the same time of day to a new female artist as they would do to a new male artist, and that’s just the long and the short of it,” Morris says.

All My Favorite People” is one of the more detailed songs on this album, and also the one that most echoes the themes of the 2016 Morris: a nod to weed smoking, an assertion that we love who we love.” But Kacey Musgraves — a Morris contemporary and peer in jolting country music’s center with the occasional drug reference — is now a Grammy album of the year winner , and even Luke Bryan is slipping notes of tolerance into his songs. These gestures now feel less urgent. What seemed audacious just a few years ago is now pro forma.

I love leaving a show and feeling like I’ve just gone to the theater. I respect people who can take that size of a production and make it seamless. And so I’ve realized I’m two different people sometimes. I’m this girl from Texas who loves writing songs and playing honky-tonks. Then there’s this pop element where it’s larger-than-life production and people are leaving the show exhilarated. I love both of these people that I’m becoming. I don’t want to be contained. I don’t want to be barricaded in by politics or genres or being a woman. With every move I’ve made, it’s pretty clear that there are no limits.
