GIRL is out now via Columbia Records

Superstar country artist and “The Middle” collaborator Maren Morris has confirmed new dates on her GIRL: The World Tour. The news arrives weeks after the release of Morris’ Game of Thrones collaboration and the annoucement The Texan will support Miranda Lambert on her Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars tour this fall. The tour is in support of Morris’ chart-topping sophomore album, GIRL.

GIRL comes three years after Morris’ breakout debut album Hero and explores how her life has changed since then — a skyrocketing career, falling in love, getting married — and the highs and lows in between. The album shattered the record for the largest ever debut streaming week for a country album by a woman with 23.96 million streams in its first week. The album debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200, #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart.


The singer, songwriter and performer is fresh off the heels of five Grammy nominations at this year’s awards including Record of the Year and Pop Duo/Group performance for her massively acclaimed hit “The Middle” with Zedd and Grey which also broke the record for most weeks atop Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, making Morris the first country artist to top that chart. Her Grammy nominations also included Country Solo Performance for her Elton John cover “Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters” and Country Duo/Group Performance and Country Song for her Vince Gill collaboration “Dear Hate.”

Morris won a Grammy Award for Best Country Solo Performance at the 59th Grammy Awards, was named New Artist of the Year at the 50th Annual CMA Awards, Top Country Female Artist at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards and New Female Vocalist of the Year at the 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards. She was also the most played female artist on country radio in 2017 and 2018.

The 28 year-old singer-songwriter from Arlington, Texas got her start playing in bars around her hometown and quickly made a name for herself with her Gold certified debut album Hero and its Platinum-selling “My Church,” Gold-selling “80s Mercedes” and “I Could Use A Love Song.” Hero and its singles topped charts nationwide, set Country radio records, and were some of the most critically acclaimed works of 2016. Tickets for additional GIRL: The World Tour shows go on sale this Friday, May 3.
