Maren Morris spilled details about her upcoming third album, which she has been working on for several months now, backstage at the ACM Awards on Sunday (4/18).

Maren said she was half way done with the project that will be influenced by her roots. She said, “My last record was very pop-leaning and with this one, I’m coming back to this Texas rootsy style that I grew up in.”

Morris added that her third studio album marks the first time in a long time that she’s been off the road to make a record. She said, “I’m really savoring that and not rushing it. I would say so far it’s a really uplifting record. I think I’m in a much lighter place in my life even though we’re coming out of the pandemic. I think that I’ve written the most intimate songs.”

Maren even crosses genre with the new work offering, “It’s got a lot of Americana elements, a lot of rootsy-ness. It just feels like me but a very stripped-down version of me. It’s still extremely fun and energetic so there’s a little bit [of] everything. I was saying this would be a good record to drive to, to get ready to go out for a Saturday night to, or even cook to, so it hits all of those marks.”
