Grammy-winning artist Maren Morris has unveiled a new Amazon Original live EP Maren Morris Live From Chicago, with videos, only on Amazon Music. The EP was recorded at the inaugural show of her GIRL: The World Tour on March 9, 2019, which was livestreamed globally by Amazon Music. The footage features performances of “GIRL,” “A Song for Everything,” “Common” and “The Bones.”
“Feeling so nostalgic for shows lately so here’s a few tracks from opening night of GIRL: The World Tour,” Morris says.
Amazon Music listeners will be able to hear some of the tracks from the new live EP on Fresh Country, a playlist featuring new releases across the genre. Customers will also be able to simply ask, “Alexa play Maren Morris Live From Chicago” in the Amazon Music app for iOS and Android and on Alexa-enabled devices.
In March, Morris received RIAA gold certification for her critically lauded album Girl, which shattered the record for the largest ever debut streaming week for a country album by a woman, with 23.96 million streams in its first week. In addition, Morris played her biggest show to date for more than 60,000 fans at the Houston Rodeo, and she leads the 2020 ACM Awards nominations this year with five nods including Female Artist of the Year and Album of the Year for Girl.
At the time of its release, Girl broke global records for most first day streams and on-demand voice requests with Alexa than any other country album debut on Amazon Music. Her latest single, “To Hell & Back,” was the second most-added at country radio upon impact, with 41 first week stations.
Her platinum-certified “The Bones” is spending its eighth week at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. When the song first earned No. 1 on the chart in February — which followed the chart-topping stint of “Girl” last summer — it marked the first time since 2016 that a solo country female artist had two No. 1’s from the same album. “The Bones” also achieved the longest post-peak run on the Country Aircheck/Mediabase radio chart in April, nine weeks following its second week at No. 1 in February, and was the first solo female back-to-back No. 1 since 2012. Additionally, “The Bones” reached the top 20 at Top 40 radio and No. 1 on the Billboard Adult Pop Songs and Mediabase Hot A.C. in April.
