It’s not quite a new album, but it should tide some fans over for a while. In the midst of her whirlwind year, Maren Morris just announced a deluxe edition of Hero. And you won’t have to wait long.
The version of the breakout star’s debut album features three additional tracks and hits shelves on Friday, March 17. In addition to the original 11 songs, the deluxe edition of Hero features “Company You Keep” (an earlier EP release), “Bummin’ Cigarettes” and “Space.”
Maren just announced “I Could Use A Love Song” as the Grammy-nominated album’s third single. She also has a slew of European dates lined up with her boyfriend Ryan Hurd. The two will tackle seven new dates in Ireland and the U.K. starting Nov. 12 in Dublin.
Morris just finished up some shows overseas as part of the Country 2 Country music festival. The three-day trek hits London, Dublin and Glasgow.
For Morris, it’s all in a day’s work. After she independently released her EP in 2015, she signed with Columbia Nashville and eventually released debut album Hero in June 2016. Since then, Morris racked up the critical acclaim and awards.
She won a Grammy for her song “My Church” in February. She also won the New Artist of the Year award from the CMAs and just landed four nominations for the upcoming ACM Awards.
So far, Morris hasn’t needed the coveted “No. 1 single” to win over country fans. “My Church” peaked at No. 5, while “80s Mercedes” landed at No. 11.
After opening for Keith Urban on his huge Ripcord World Tour, Morris announced her own string of headlining shows. Many of those sold out in minutes. And as they say, ain’t no rest for the wicked. Morris tours for much of the rest of the year, going coast to coast.
