If you haven’t been paying attention to country music lately then you may not recognize the name Maren Morris.
However, she’s been on the country scene for a few years with hits such as “80’s Mercedes,” and “I Could Use A Love Song.” Both are incredibly catchy country tunes.
Most country artists choose to wait a few years before beginning to dabble in other genres of music as to establish a “core base,” but over the past few years the lines between country and pop music have blurred, leaving an open field for artists to explore more early on in their careers.
Well, not even a month into 2018 and we have our first cross-genre team up. Maren joined forces with Zedd and Grey on “The Middle.”
It’s poppy, lightly EDM, and just a little country hint via Maren’s voice with the slightest bit of twang with wide vowel sounds.
Here’s to hoping we get more Maren on the pop side of the industry in the future. For now though, we’ll just enjoy “The Middle.”
