Country singer Maren Morris is hitting the road this spring with a healthy dose of girl power.
Girl: The World tour kicks off in early March and runs through May, followed by a European run and few summer festival performances. Appropriately, given the tour's name, Morris will take two other female country singers on tour with her, both also former contestants on "The Voice"--Cassadee Pope and RaeLynn. Pope will open for Morris through March, with RaeLynn taking over through the end of May. Tickets for select shows will be on sale right here on AXS, with pre-sales starting Friday, January 18, at 10 a.m. local time. VIP packages are also available.
Girl: The World Tour takes its name from Morris' new single released Thursday afternoon, a rock-tinged track with optimistic, uplifting lyrics.
"I am talking to my inner critic that says I’m not good enough," Morris told Rolling Stone when the song was released. "This is me telling myself it’s going to be OK and to chill the fuck out. Just write your music and put your blinders on. Don’t worry about what other people are doing or saying about you. Don’t water yourself down to appease them. Just focus on your art and the rest will fall into place."
"Girl" was written with the help of songwriter Sarah Aarons, who also worked with Morris on her collaboration with Zedd, "The Middle," which is up for multiple iHeartRadio Awards, including Song of the Year and Best Collaboration. Morris' song "Rich," from her 2016 debut album, Hero, is also nominated for Country Song of the Year, and she's also up for five Grammys.
