Twenty-six year-old Columbia Nashville singer/songwriter Maren Morris has quickly established herself with vocal styling’s that reflect her country, soul and pop influences.
Armed with sheer talent, honest lyrics and a completely magnetic presence, the Arlington, Texas native was named as one of CMT’s Next Women of Country as well as a CMT Listen Up Artist of 2016 and many 2016 Watch Lists including USA Today, Billboard, and Huffington Post to name a few.
Morris’ label-debut album, HERO, was released in June 2016 and one week after it was available, HERO entered the Billboard Country Albums chart at No. 1 and No. 5 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart, which spans across all genres.
With this, Morris became the first artist in the history of Columbia Nashville to open at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Charts with a debut album in the Soundscan era.
