Texas raised, Nashville based country singer Maren Morris has had a star-making several years, swiftly transcending her promising early start as a writer (notably, contributing songs for TV’s Nashville as well as a host of big-name artists) to a Grammy winning superstar, breaking out with 2016 debut LP Hero, and teaming up with EDM artists Zedd and Grey for inescapable, ubiquitous 2018 monster of a pop tune, “The Middle.” On the heels of another round of Grammy nominations and her recent addition to this year’s impressive Bonnaroo lineup (graduating, notably, from her debut as a Club Stage artist in 2016 to a top-tier performer), Morris, prepping to release her highly-anticipated sophomore LP, just dropped an anthemic and empowering new tune, “Girl,” along with an announcement of her most extensive, globe-trotting headlining tour to date.
Set to bring the rising star to The Ryman Auditorium on March 13 (likely narrowly avoiding her Bonnaroo radius clause), the first trek of dates will feature fellow Nashville country breakout (and genre-bender) Cassadee Pope in the supporting slot (who also has a new album on tap), with later dates set to include kindred spirit RaeLynn. Dubbed “Girl: The World Tour,” this run is the latest testament to Morris’s staggering, well-deserved ascent, bringing a powerful, unrelenting new voice and attitude to the modern country landscape which long has and continues often not to give female artists their rightful due.
Grab tickets when they go on sale Tuesday, Jan. 22 at 10 a.m. CST right here (or through a number of pre-sales beginning Friday). Based on Maren’s stellar new single alone, we don’t expect them to last.
