Maren Morris Adds Dates, Openers to Headlining 2017 Tour
She's also added two new dates to the Hero Tour:
Morris will play in Chicao, Ill., on March 2 with Dawson and in Nashville on April 5 with "special guests," who have yet to be revealed. She's also set for the 2017 Stagecoach Festival, performing before country-pop icon Shania Twain.
A country newcomer, Morris has had a successful year with the release of her major label debut Hero and her big win at the 2016 CMA Awards. She says the CMA nod is a hint of the changing tide of country music.
“I feel incredibly lucky to have received this award at the 50th [anniversary of the CMA] Awards,” Morris said backstage at the CMAs. “I think there was so much tradition in the audience and so many icons, but at the same time, the reflection of the winners … I feel like the tide is turning here in Nashville. Seeing people like Brothers Osborne win is huge … It just makes me so happy that new blood is coming in and being recognized.”
The 2016 CMA Awards New Artist of the Year is currently wrapping up the Ripcord Tour with Keith Urban and Brett Eldredge and will have some time off before heading back on the road. For more information on the 2017 Hero Tour and to purchase tickets, visit Morris' website.
