Maren Morris had mixed feelings about releasing her latest hit, “Girl,” as a single from her sophomore album of the same name. She co-wrote the song, which Maren tells us left her feeling expecially vulnerable. “When I was writing that song I felt like . . . I felt very exposed but once I took a breath and accepted that I needed to get this out to move on and progress and finish the album it was very clear that it had single potential to me because I needed to keep saying it to myself and I thought, 'If I need to hear this maybe a lot of other people do too right now.'”

Maren continues on her Girl: The World Tour with special guest RaeLynn tonight (Thursday, April 25th) in Pittsburgh.
