It’s easy to see the shift in Nashville happening. It’s been coming for a long time, but after Chris Stapleton’s breakout night during the 49th Annual CMA Awards, it’s officially here.
The shift away from over-produced, lyrically dull and not great music has happened and the next name you’re about to hear a lot of is Maren Morris.
Maren’s EP is officially here after already gaining traction on Spotify, generating in excess of 6 million worldwide streams in less than two months, with 3 songs hitting Spotify’s US and Global “Viral 50” lists.
The EP’s strongest track, “My Church” is a confessional look at how music can bring healing and name-drops the likes of Hank Williams and Johnny Cash.
Maren has already established herself in the Nashville songwriting community and her EP has everyone in town talking.
