Maren Morris just released her brand new single, called "Girl," yesterday (Thursday, January 17th) and now she's shared the news of her headlining Girl: The World Tour, which kicks off on March 9th in Chicago. The 40-plus date trek will play both in the U.S. and internationally, and will feature special guests Cassadee Pope and RaeLynn. Tickets for the general on-sale will begin on Tuesday (January 22nd) at 10 a.m. local time.
Maren's new single, "Girl," is the first release from her upcoming sophomore album. She co-wrote it with Sarah Aarons, one of the writers on "The Middle," and it's about a particular situation in Maren's life. She tells us: ["I was talking about another person who I feel like in an unfortunate way we're always pit against each other and I was trying to write the song from the angle of like how I would write a letter to this person and say, 'We don't need to do this to each other. Like, this is what other people have done to us.' But then I realized I'm actually writing this about myself and to myself and that inner critic so the whole story behind 'Girl' really started and ended with we all need to take a collective look in the mirror and chill out and just know that we are not perfect but it's okay. It makes it way more interesting when you're not and you embrace that."] SOUNDCUE (:48 OC: . . . you embrace that.)
"Girl" is available at all digital retailers.
