EDITORS’ NOTES

A contemporary pop spin on feel-good, windows-down country, Hero is the debut studio album from Maren Morris. The Texas native cut her teeth writing songs for Tim McGraw and Kelly Clarkson, but her fresh perspectives and knack for radio-ready pop hooks caught the attention of executives in Nashville, and earned her comparisons to crossover stars like Sheryl Crow and Kacey Musgraves. Fittingly, Hero includes Top 40 contenders, like the carefree anthem “80’s Mercedes,” alongside soulful country tributes like “My Church,” a ballad about Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, and the healing power of FM radio. “When this wonderful world gets heavy and I need to find my escape,” she sings, “I just keep the wheels rolling, radio scrolling, until my sins wash away.”

No way to woo fans Maren

I supported this artist by buying her EP 2 months ago. Which was quite good. Now I discover that I am expected to pay full price for her new album that includes all the songs on her EP? Someone needs to view this pricing policy. If I purchase the extra songs individually I will not get the Album!

Fricking Amazing

This album is awesome every single song I have enjoyed listening to. Can honestly say it's an album worth buying and I don't usually buy full albums. Well done Maren very interested for your next album. Particular favourites My Church, 80's Mercedes, I Could Use A Long Song
