“GIRL[s]” in the forefront: Maren continues Miranda's most-nominated tradition

Columbia Nashville Maren Morris’ six CMA nominations this year put her in the same category as her label mate and upcoming tour partner, Miranda Lambert: Maren’s six nods are the most for any female artist since Miranda picked up nine in 2014.

“Really unexpected to wake up to but DAMN,” Maren reacted on Twitter. “Thank you, Country Music Association and my peers for the nominations this year.”

Maren’s up for Album of the Year for GIRL, as well as Single, Song, and Music Video for the title track. The cut “All My Favorite People,” featuring Brothers Osborne, picked up a Musical Event nod as well.

Maren’s also in the running for Female Vocalist, alongside Miranda. They’ll head out on the Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars tour in October; Maren will also kick off the latest leg of Girl: The World Tour next month.
