Most people watching the 2017 Grammys may have just been introduced to the newcomer. But this young Country crooner has worked hard and earned her spot alongside Alicia Keys. Maren Morris has been behind the scenes writing music for Country and Pop’s biggest artist including Kelly Clarkson and Tim McGraw. Clarkson’s “Piece by Piece” is her most personal record which was inspired by a conversation with her sister and family. Morris really captured the former American Idol’s thoughts. Clarkson love it so much that she named her seventh album after it.
Maren Morris’s debut single My Church was posted on her spotify in 2015. She wasn’t signed to a label at the time and after the song spread like wildfire online it opened up doors for her as solo artist. Her co-writer Ryan Hurd is also her boyfriend. The couple began working together in 2013 and recently went on tour together. The 26 year old was born in Arlington Texas and grew up in Nashville.
In 2016 she earned $2.5 million.
