We’ve Got Our Fingers Crossed For Maren Morris

Maren Morris is no stranger to award shows appreciating her work. Since the singer-songwriter rose to prominence in 2016, her music has been both loved and critically acclaimed.


At her very first Grammy Awards in 2017, the country queen was nominated for four awards. She won Best Country Solo Performance for “My Church.” She’s also been nominated at the Grammys every year since. This year, her hit “The Bones” is up for Best Country Song. The ceremony is just around the corner, so fans are staying tuned to see if she brings it home.


Maren Morris has also been notably included in the American Music Awards, Billboard Awards, and Country Music Awards. She’s an impressive performer with a stellar career trajectory. 


Yet, many believe her best is still to come. Her heartwarming new collaboration with her loving husband might have something to do with that. Fans near and far are still swooning at the match made in country music heaven. There may even be some ACM love in the duo’s future, as well.
