Ugly crying is totally OK when you’ve had the week that Maren Morris has had.
The hit-making Texas native woke up Tuesday morning (Dec. 6) to the news that she leads the country Grammy nominees with four nominations, and she makes her Saturday Night Live debut on Saturday (Dec. 10).
Despite the tears, she still looks flawless in a celebratory Instagram picture holding a bottle of Dom Pérignon.
It’s pretty wild to think that her most recent accomplishments probably wouldn’t have come to fruition had she not moved to Nashville in the first place. The songs she creates fit in any music city, and she could have easily chosen another to call home.
“Thank God I moved to Nashville,” she said in a recent radio interview. “I feel like I've got so much under my belt. And the writers that I’ve gotten to work with over the past few years, I feel like it give me that confidence. Looking back, I am so glad that I went through the struggles and the highs and the lows because it makes me so much more appreciative of what’s happening now.”
Most of the dates on the Hero Tour 2017 are sold out.
Her final shows of 2016 include stops in Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Charles, Missouri. She will ring in New Year’s in Riviera, Mexico, with performances at the Zac Brown Band’s Castaway Southern Ground concert vacation.
