About Test Copy

EARLY LIFE

A young Maren Morris began to showcase her performance skills at the early age of 10, performing on the family karaoke machine every chance she could. By age 14, Maren learned the guitar and put those skills to use when she self-released her debut album, Walk On, in 2005. Morris went on to release a follow-up album, All That It Takes, in 2007 via the Smith Music Group before self-releasing her third album, Live Wire in 2011. Determined to break into the music industry, Morris packed up and made the leap to Nashville, Tennessee.

MUSIC CAREER

Maren Morris’ move to Nashville paid off when she landed a deal with Big Yellow Dog Music where she wrote songs for A-listers such as Tim McGraw’s “Last Turn Home” and Kelly Clarkson’s “Second Wind,” co-writing the former with her now husband, Ryan Hurd.  

On August 14, 2015, Maren Morris dropped her self-titled EP on digital outlets, racking up over 2.5 million streams in just over a month. The success of her EP caught the ears of Sony Music Nashville who would later help her re-release the EP with the breakout hit, “My Church,” as the lead single. With a label now backing her, Morris managed to take “My Church” to the top of the charts, hitting No. 5 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.

Maren Morris released her major label debut album, Hero, on June 3, 2016. That same week, she hit the road with Keith Urban on the hugely successful RipCORD World Tour. In 2017, Morris earned four Grammy nominations and took home the award for Best Country Solo Performance for the single, “My Church.” With anticipation building for her sophomore studio album, Morris has kept her name in the spotlight and on top of the charts by collaborating with major pop superstars Niall Horan (“Seeing Blind”) and ZEDD and Grey (“The Middle.”)
