Since the 2016 release of “My Church,” Arlington, Texas, native Maren Morris has become a commercial success as well as a critical favorite. With her mix of thought-provoking lyrics and a fresh attitude, Morris is one of today's fastest-rising country stars.
The 28-year-old Grammy-Award winner became a crossover success in 2018, teaming with Zedd and Grey for one of the biggest pop hits of the year, “The Middle.” And there’s no stopping her in 2019, either, as Morris delivered her masterful sophomore album, Girl, on March 8.
Unlike her debut LP Hero, Morris’ second album features a handful of love songs, inspired by her finding her soulmate (she married fellow singer-songwriter Ryan Hurd in March 2018). But Cupid’s arrow didn’t take away from Morris’ sharp wit or vocal prowess, as Girl sees the same clever wordplay and awe-striking vocals fans have grown to love.
