Early and personal life

Maren Larae Morris[5] was born on April 10, 1990,[6][7] in Arlington, Texas, the daughter of Scott and Kellie Morris (née Pellam),[8] where she was raised with a younger sister, Karsen.[9] She is presently based in Nashville, Tennessee for her country music singing and songwriting career. She is dating fellow country music singer Ryan Hurd.[10]

Music career

Her music recording career started in 2005, with her debut studio album, Walk On, was released on June 14, 2005, by Mozzi Blozzi Music.[11] Her subsequent release, All That it Takes, was released on October 22, 2007, by Smith Entertainment.[11] Her third release, Live Wire, was released in 2011, by Mozzi Blozzi Music.[11] Her major label debut album Hero was released to critical acclaim in 2016.[12] Maren spent several years in Nashville writing songs for other artists, including "Last Turn Home" on Tim McGraw's 2014 album Sundown Heaven Town,[13] and "Second Wind", which Kelly Clarkson sang on her 2015 album Piece by Piece.[14]

2015: Maren Morris EP

Morris initially self-released five songs as an eponymous extended play, Maren Morris, on Spotify in August 2015.[15] The songs gained 2.5 million streams on Spotify in a month, with three songs appearing on Spotify's US and Global "Viral 50" chart. The success of Morris' EP attracted the interest of major labels, and she became signed to Columbia Nashville in September 2015.[16][17] The label re-released the five-song EP, on November 6, 2015, with "My Church" the lead single.[18] Following airplay on country radio, along with several in-studio appearances on satellite radio, this EP charted on two Billboard charts—number 27 on the Country Albums chart and number one on the Top Heatseekers chart[19]—and sold 2,400 copies in its debut week.[20] "My Church" reached number five on the Hot Country Songs chart and was certified Gold by the RIAA.[21]

2016: Hero

With the success of "My Church", Morris released her major label studio album on June 3, 2016, the week she started a tour with Keith Urban.[17] The album debuted and peaked at number five on the Billboard 200 chart, and number one on the Top Country Albums chart.[1]

Her debut single from the project, "My Church", hit number one on the Country Digital Songs chart in 2016 and reached the top five on the US Hot Country Songs chart.[2]

Hero earned Maren Morris four Grammy Award nominations at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards. The album was nominated for Best Country Album, "My Church" won Best Country Solo Performance and was nominated for Best Country Song. Morris was also nominated for the all-genre honor of Best New Artist.[3]

Morris was honored at Billboard Women in Music 2016 with the Breakthrough Star Award,[22] and she is set to receive the Breakthrough Artist Award at Music Biz 2017.[23]

Morris is currently on the road with her headlining 2017 The HERO Tour.[24] She joins Sam Hunt for his 15 in a 30 Tour later in 2017.[25][26]

In March 2017, it was revealed that a deluxe edition of the project would be released, featuring the songs "Bummin' Cigarettes," "Space" and "Company You Keep."[27]
