Grammy Award winning musician Maren Morris is set to make her UK television debut tonight on BBC 2 before returning to the UK for a tour including Manchester’s Ritz later in the year.
Having performed on the likes of Saturday Night Live, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and alongside Alicia Keys on the 59th Annual Grammy Awards broadcast itself, the appearances marks her first UK television appearance on Later… with Jools Holland. The show will broadcast at 10pm on Tuesday 30 May and is repeated on 2 June.
Maren Morris was America’s most exciting new breakthrough artist of 2016, rising from an acclaimed country starlet straight into the mainstream with her major label debut LP, Hero. It is a record that is much more than the sum of its wonderfully sculpted parts, and it was Hero’s first single, My Church, that put Maren Morris’ name firmly on the map and out beyond that hugely appreciative country scene that had been so quick to nurture her.
Playlisted at every US radio station that mattered and many more besides, it wasn’t merely a fantastic country song they were playing, but a song that managed to introduce this incredible young Nashville (by way of Arlington, Texas) musician to the masses, picking up an award for Best Country Solo Performance at the Grammy Awards in February – one of four nominations.
Maren Morris appears on Later… with Jools Holland on 30 May and 2 June.
