Maren Morris and Alicia Keys to Perform at 2017 Grammy Awards

CMT

Maren Morris took to Twitter on Tuesday morning (Jan. 31) to announce she’d be performing at the 2017 Grammy Awards.

Morris is crossing another huge accomplishment off her bucket list. She’s already a Grammy nominee, with an impressive four nods this year. Now, she’s adding “Grammy performer” to her resume. She’ll take the stage on Feb. 12 to perform with powerhouse vocalist Alicia Keys and she let her fans know via Twitter.

Morris and Keys may seem like an unlikely pair but the two aren’t strangers. They joined their gorgeous voices for an episode of CMT Crossroads back in 2016. The pair haven’t announced which song they’ll be performing, but I hope they at least play a snippet of Morris’ “80’s Mercedes.” That was one of their most impressive duets on the CMT special and it would sound incredible on the Grammy Awards stage.

Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban are also representing country at the 2017 show. They’re coming together for a duet, which surprised a lot of people. So far, the Grammy Awards are looking pretty great.

Morris snagged four Grammy nominations this year. Her debut album, Hero, is up for Best Country Album. “My Church” is nominated for Best Country Song as well as Best Country Solo Performance. She also picked up a nod for Best New Artist, the all-genre category. In that one she’s up against Kelsea Ballerini, The Chainsmokers, Chance the Rapper and Anderson .Paak. You can see the full list of Grammy nominees here.
