Her record shattering album GIRL continues to receive widespread critical praise—Variety hailed it as “the best as well as most important mainstream country-star album of the year.” GIRL was also featured amongst the Best of 2019 by Rolling Stone, Billboard, Esquire, GQ, People, Vice, Paste, Stereogum and Uproxx. Much more to come from Morris in 2020.
Further critical praise for GIRL: “A Texas songwriter with a sharp eye, a velvet voice and a mean streak…‘GIRL’ sets the bar high right away. It’s the most ambitious and eccentric song she’s done yet, an emotional powerhouse driven by jagged rock guitar.”—Rolling Stone
“Country’s most innovative young star”—NPR “As effortlessly modern as she is steeped in heritage, Morris has shown us she can do it all when she wants to.”—Los Angeles Times “Seriously soaring vocals” —Esquire “The country singer has something to say about how her genre handles women, skin and outspokenness.”—Playboy “Country star Maren Morris is the strongest she’s ever been...now she’s testing the limits of just how far she can go.”—Women’s Health “Morris represents a new generation of women in country who are working to transcend the boundaries of their Nashville roots.” —TIME “GIRL is a 14-song collection showcasing Morris at her prime, swerving lanes between genres while maintaining her deep and respectful country roots.”—GQ “She isn’t just a performer who evokes emotion from a crowd, but one that knows how to adjust her set for different circumstances.”—UPROXX
