Receiving her first nominations ever, Maren Morris tweeted her shock, saying, “Four Grammy nominations?! I’M SHOOK.” She was nominated for Best New Artist, Best Country Solo Performance, Best Country Album, and Best Country Song. Born in Texas and currently living in Nashville, Morris is no stranger to the country scene.
