Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd caught up with Billboard’s Chelsea Briggs on the red carpet at the 2019 MusiCares Person of the Year Gala on Friday (Feb. 8), chatting about how this past year has made Morris more fearless, the possibility of a duets album and why they love Dolly Parton.
Reflecting on the last 12 months, Morris tells Briggs that having worked with Zedd and Grey -- and now capping off the year with five Grammy nominations -- she considers herself to be more fearless when it comes to production and her live shows. She adds that she can now embrace the fact that she doesn’t have to be just one thing.
Morris also shares that she would love to collaborate with Zedd again, if asked. “Any time Zedd calls me up to do another song, I'm game,” she says of her "The Middle" collaborator. “It worked out the first time so well. Clearly, we have some sort of chemistry there brewing. Sarah Aarons, who wrote the song, she and I wrote several songs for my new record, so it's brought a lot of amazing people into my life.”
