Breakthrough artist Maren Morris and Alicia Keys teamed up with R&B singer-songwriter Alicia Keys for an impressive duet of “Once” during the 2017 Grammy Awards.
The duet showcased Morris’ vocal talents alongside Keys, one of the best singers in the business.
Their Grammy performance comes just a few months after the duo first joined forces for an episode of CMT’s Crossroads. Morris and Keys supplied a feisty rendition of “80s Mercedes,” as well as Alicia’s massive 2007 hit “No One.”
Earlier in the evening, Morris won Best Country Solo Performance for her hit debut single “My Church.”
Morris’ major label debut Hero climbed to the top of the charts after she made waves with “My Church.” The record has become a crossover hit, thanks to the major pop, soul and R&B influences weaved through each song. Still, Morris’ songwriting skills keep the album relatable to country fans who’ve ever found themselves taking a joy ride, falling in love or struggling through a breakup.
This year marks the first time Morris has ever been nominated for a Grammy. Along with Best Country Solo Performance, Morris was nominated for Best New Artist and Best Country Song for “My Church” and Best Country Album for Hero.
