Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Maren Morris set to release her new song “GIRL” tomorrow, Thursday, Jan. 17. The highly anticipated new track can be heard for the first time when it makes its world premiere on the country radio airwaves beginning 4:00 PM CT/5:00 PM ET. Fans can tune into their country radio station of choice to hear “GIRL” for the very first time. Immediately following the world premiere of “GIRL,” fans will be able to stream and download the new song on all digital music platforms.
The rousing new recording was written by Morris and Sarah Aarons (“The Middle,” Zedd/Maren Morris/Grey), along with Grammy Award-winning songwriter and producer Greg Kurstin (Adele, Sia), who also produced “GIRL.”
Almost three years, to the day, from when “GIRL” will hit the radio airwaves, Morris was first introduced when her debut single, the now 2x Platinum, Grammy-Award winning, “My Church,” landed at country radio (Jan, 20, 2016).
Since then, Morris has gone on to release the Platinum “80s Mercedes”; Platinum “I Could Use A Love Song,” her first No. 1 country radio single as both the performer and songwriter; and most recently the Top-5 hit “Rich.” Tomorrow, “GIRL,” will mark the fifth career single for the 28-year-old Texas native and will serve as the first music to be released from Morris’ forthcoming 2019 album and follow-up to the 2016 critically acclaimed, RIAA Gold-certified album, HERO.
Before “GIRL,” Morris first began her musical journey 16 years ago when she first picked up the guitar at the age of 12. Two years later, at 14, Morris had immersed herself into the local music scene by performing in the nearby saloons and live music clubs of the Fort Worth/Arlington area, with her father at her side managing the budding singer/songwriter. Always the one to challenge, especially challenging herself, Morris pushed further without rest. Before she would turn 15, Morris would visit Los Angeles to be in the inaugural class of Grammy camp. Nearly 14 years later Morris would be a Grammy-Award winner, in addition to having the most nominations for a country music artist that year with four nominations to her credit including Best New Artist, Best Country Album (HERO), and Best Country Song (“My Church”).
It’s that journey, and the experiences and unique challenges along her path that has brought Morris from 2003 to 2019. When the powerhouse vocalist belts “Girl, don’t hang your head low. Don’t lose your halo. Everyone’s gonna be okay, baby, girl” it’s evident that those words are from a place of experience and lessons learned.
