Maren Larae Morri (born 1990-10-4 ) is an American singer and songwriter who has released two albums. As a country artist, she also incorporates elements of-pop, R&B, and rock into her work. When Morris was a kid growing up in Arlington, TX, he loved to sing. She began playing in front of an audience when she was only an adolescent and went on to tour the state of Texas. Before turning 20, she had three studio albums issued on indie labels. Around the same time, she moved to Nashville, Tennessee, to seek a career in country music. Streaming success for Morris’ self-titled EP in 2015 led to her signing a publishing deal and then a recording contract.
On Hero (2016), Morris released his third studio album, a mix of country and R&B, on Columbia Nashville. Following the mainstream success of the album’s first track “My Church,” she went on to have hit singles like “80’s Mercedes,” “I Could Use a Love Song,” and “Rich.” Morris teamed up with Grey and Zedd on “The Middle” in 2018. As a single, the song was a top-ten pop hit in a number of different nations. Girl, her fifth album, was released in 2019. The album blended country music with other genres and included guest appearances from a variety of musicians. “Girl” and “The Bones” were both number one hits. Humble Quest will be the title of Morris’ next
studio album, due in March 2022.
The two albums that Morris has released have both been certified for sales in the United States and Canada. On the Billboard Country Airplay chart, she has had three No. 1 singles and eight No. 10 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs list. One Grammy, five Academy of Country Music Awards, one American Music Award and five country music association awards are among the many honors Morris has accrued over the years.
In Arlington, Texas, on April 10, 1990, Greg and Kellie Morris welcomed Morris into the world. Initially, she sang LeAnn Rimes and Patsy Cline karaoke songs at her parents’ get-togethers and other social gatherings. Also in school, the singer started composing tales and poetry to hone her craft as a writer. Her father gave her her first guitar when she was 12 years old, and she began composing songs and playing in local bands. Morris, who cites Patty Griffin, the Dixie Chicks, and Sheryl Crow as early inspirations, has claimed that she began performing in bars and clubs all throughout Texas when she was a teenager. “I was the only one in my class who worked on the weekends!” said one student. In spite of her country roots, she has referred to herself as a “gangster June Carter” because of her ability to fuse multiple genres.
Writing songs in Nashville after moving there
Kacey Musgraves, a fellow Texan, encouraged Morris to leave her hometown and travel to Nashville at the age of 20 to pursue her music career. Both The Voice and American Idol rejected her during her auditions, which were the beginning of her devastation. She’s grateful for the setbacks now that she can look back on them. This is the first time she’s admitted to being happy since she didn’t make it on any of the talent programs she auditioned for in the past, as she previously told Rolling Stone Country.
After a series of unsuccessful auditions, she started creating songs for other artists, including Tim McGraw and Kelly Clarkson. It wasn’t until late in 2015 that she decided to release an eponymous EP on Spotify. When she accumulated 2.5 million streams in only one month, Columbia Nashville gave her a recording deal.”
Morris, who began with local performances before opening for groups like Little Big Town and Chris Stapleton, has said, “It wasn’t a deliberate choice to be an artist.” Was it more, am I prepared to confront my own perspective??” Normally, I would have been content to create songs and leave it at that, but a voice in my brain kept telling me that I had to sing them.”
Her Debut LP, “Hero,” and a Grammy Win for Her
Her first big label album, Hero, was released in 2016, along with the song “My Church.” “My Church” earned her a Grammy the following year after debuting at No. 1 on the country music charts. Three Grammy nominations in 2017 earned her the distinction of being the most-nominated country performer that year. Morris was nominated for five 2016 CMA awards, including Best New Artist, in addition to her Grammy accolades.
“I Could Use a Love Song” was nominated for a Grammy in 2018 for Best Country Solo Performance.
Collaborations and Touring As part of the Ripcord World Tour in promotion of her new album, Hero, Morris opened for Keith Urban. As well as headlining her own tour in the beginning of 2017, she toured with Sam Hunt as part of the 15 in a 30 Tour. Throughout June 2018, she will open for Niall Horan on the second leg of his Flicker World Tour in Oceania and North America.
Hits with Thomas Rhett and tourmate Niall Horan in 2017 and “Seeing Blind” with Zedd and Grey in 2018 round out her impressive discography. Dance/electronic radio stations mostly preferred the latter, and it peaked at number one.
Maren formed the Highwomen with Brandi Carlile, Natalie Hemby and Amanda Shires in 2016. On September 6th, 2019, they released an album of the same name.
Girl, Morris’ second album, was released in March of this year. When it came time to release a follow-up to “Girl,” Billboard charted it at No. 12 and nominated it for a Grammy Award for Best Country Song, while “The Bones” reached No. 12 on the Hot 100.
This year, Morris was named ACMs’ Best Female Artist and Best Song for “The Bones,” which she performed at the awards show.
