Maren Morris Reveals Motivation Behind New 'Humble Quest' Album

Maren Morris’ new album, Humble Quest, is out today (Friday, March 25th). It includes her latest single, “Circles Around This Town,” as well as 10 other new songs which came together as a result of several factors, not the least of which was the pandemic. 


Maren tells us: "I think that forced me to really stop and recalibrate my life and my choices and what I put stock into so it really made me sharpen my view on what I do for a living and what I don't want to do anymore, so I think that a culmination of motherhood, marriage, the pandemic, not being able to tour, and then just trying to be creative again, it all ended up being these songs, and so it just felt like a huge growth period but also less pressure going into trying to prove myself because I feel like I don't have to do that anymore."


Stay tuned for Kicks 96's Maren Mashup March 28th - April 1st during the Morning Crew with Sean & Dave for a chance to win tickets to her Humble Quest tour!
