GIRL, the new album from superstar Maren Morris, is out now.
The album was released Friday March 8 —International Women’s Day—through Columbia Nashville/Sony Music Entertainment Australia.
The album, Morris’ second, features history-making title track ‘GIRL’—which is this week spending its second week at #1 on the The Music Network’s national Country airplay chart. It also had the highest debut on Billboard’s Country Streaming Songs chart by a female artist and the highest weekly streams by a female country artist ever in the USA —as well as Brandi Carlile collaboration ‘Common’ and ‘The Bones.’
GIRL comes three years after Morris’ breakout debut album HERO and explores how her life has changed since then—a skyrocketing career, falling in love, becoming engaged and then married—and the highs and lows in between.
Morris is fresh off the heels of five Grammy nominations including Record of the Year and Pop Duo/Group performance for her massively acclaimed hit ‘The Middle’ with Zedd and Grey, Country Solo Performance for her Elton John cover ‘Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters’ and Country Duo/Group Performance and Country Song for her Vince Gill collaboration ‘Dear Hate.
‘The Middle’ broke the record for most weeks atop Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, also making Morris the first country artist to top that chart. ‘The Middle’ was also the second most played song on Australian commercial radio in 2018. Morris was the most played female artist on US country radio in 2018 and 2017, fitting for the artist who was awarded Top Country Female Artist at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards and New Female Vocalist of the Year at the 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards in 2017.
Morris is a Grammy award winner for Best Country Solo Performance at the 59th Grammy Awards and was named New Artist of the Year at the 50th Annual CMA Awards. The 28-year-old singer-songwriter from Arlington, Texas got her start playing in bars around her hometown and quickly made a name for herself with her Gold certified debut album HERO and its Platinum ‘My Church,’ Gold ‘80s Mercedes’ and ‘I Could Use A Love Song.’ HERO and its singles topped charts, set Country radio records, and were some of the most critically acclaimed of 2016.
