Maren Morris caught herself crying in Athens during a performance
Morris had four nominations and won her first trophy in the Best Country Solo Performance category for “My Church” at this year’s Grammy Awards. She also was up for two nominations at the upcoming ACM Awards, including the coveted Female Vocalist of the Year. She also kicked off The Hero Tour 2017, her first headlining tour.
On Saturday, Feb. 18, Maren took the stage at the popular Georgia Theater in Athens, Georgia to an exuberant crowd. Cranking through her hits the star had a stellar set. But, things got a little overwhelming as she began to wrap her set with her monster single, “My Church.”
In a YouTube video from user David Lee, you can barely hear Maren as the crowd serenades the country starlet with her own smash. Eventually, it becomes too much for the tiny Texan to comprehend and she wipes away a tear. By the song’s final notes, she has both hands on her face, wiping away what we can only presume are tears of joy.
Maren Morris is a star to look out for, with 80’s Mercedes still heating up the charts and her tour off to a great start, its looking to be a banner year for her.
