Maren Morris has a debut album on the way and we’re absolutely jacked.
She is as talented as they come in the country music world and if her self-titled EP was any indication, we are in for one amazing album. She is set to release her debut major-label album, Hero, on June 3, of which, the Texas native co-wrote the entire album, including her debut single “My Church.” Maren released this statement on her Instagram this morning:
Aaaand here we go! My debut album “HERO” is comin’ your way June 3rd! This record really encapsulates everything that’s been bouncing around my head for the past 3 years. It’s woven with every thread of my influences, which pulls from the country and R&B landscapes. To borrow a line from one of my most introspective songs, “I’m not the hero in this story,” which I wasn’t… but that was then. I am the hero in THIS story, and it’s taken a long road to be able to say that. Who I am as an artist, a songwriter and a woman today has been carefully shaped over time on my journey from Texas to Tennessee. They say never meet your heroes, but what if you just became your own?
1. “Sugar” 2. “Rich” 3. “My Church” 4. “I Could Use a Love Song” 5. “80’s Mercedes” 6. “Drunk Girls Don’t Cry” 7. “How It’s Done” 8. “Just Another Thing” 9. “I Wish I Was” 10. “Second Wind” 11. “Once”
