Last night Maren Morris was not on the musical guest but took time to chat with Seth Meyers about her Grammy win as well as the poetic justice that comes along with hearing her songs performed on the same television singing competitions that turned her down.
Meyers congratulated Morris on being the most nominated artist at this year’s CMA Awards, which will air in November. “I wasn’t really expecting that, I think like the big one for me this year, because I put a record out, was Album of the Year but, yeah, I didn’t expect to walk away with so that was very cool,” Morris shared about her nominations. “It’s voted on by my peers in Nashville so, I feel like the cool kid.” She also discussed how she got her start, not at county fairs but standing on a bale of hay in the middle of a parking lot, something Meyers laughed at but she says is true.
She laughed looking back at her American Idol audition where after singing her heart out for 8 seconds, her entire group got cut. “Sorry, you have to take the walk of shame, yeah I just remember being 17 and I had to like walk through the ‘walk of shame’ out to the parking lot and find my mom’s car and just cry on the way home with her, but I mean it all worked out,” she explains.
After her chat, Morris changed out of her multi-colored dress into a sleek, turquoise pantsuit to perform her current single “The Bones”. The love song about a strong relationship follows her number one single, the title track to her album “GIRL”.
Morris is bringing her GIRL: The World Tour to the iconic Radio City Music Hall this Friday night with Kassi Ashton and Hailey Whitters. Follow NYCountry Swag on Instagram for exclusive clips from the show.
