Maren Morris found fame in the country music industry when she jumped in the scene back in 2005. Her success has only continued to grow through the years and we are always anticipating her new music. Let's take a look at what her life looked life before she became famous... 

Maren Morris was born on April 10, 1990 in Arlington Texas. At the age of 12, her father bought her her first guitar and she absolutely fell in love. Maren's music recording career started in 2005 with her debut studio album titled Walk On being released. Her second album, All That it Takes was released in 2007. Maren went to the University of North Texas and graduated in 2010 before releasing her third album, Live Wire, in 2011.

Maren Morris' major debut wasn't until 2016 when she released her album Hero. This album was released after she found big success with her breakthrough single, "My Church" in 2015. Hero earned Maren four Grammy Award Nominations. She went on her first tour for Hero in 2017 and also joined Sam Hunt on a tour later on that same year.

Maren Morris: GIRL 

Most recently Maren released a new album on March 8th of this year titled GIRL and she has also formed a group with fellow musicians and singers, Brandi Carlile, Amanda Shires and the fourth slot being filled by alternating women. The group is called The Highwomen and their self-titled debut album was just released on September 6th, 2019. We are so proud of everything Maren has accomplished in her career so far and can't wait to see what's in store for the country artist.
