Maren Morris Says Writing Song with 2021 Date ‘Seriously Got Me High’

by Thad Mitchell

Even though she had a successful 2020, Maren Morris is happy to turn the calendar over to 2021.

The rising country music superstar is already a household name and is looking forward to more in the new year. Morris joins many that are happy to say that 2020 is now in the rearview mirror and a new year brings new possibilities.

The “I Could Use a Love Song” and “My Church” singer recently took to social media to express her thoughts on 2021. She says placing a new date above a freshly written song gives her an intoxicating feeling of hopefulness.

“Writing a song today and putting “2021” for the date of creation seriously got me high,” the singer tweets.

With a growing fanbase, Morris’ tweet garnered more than 2,000 likes only a few hours after its posting.

Maren Morris Looking for More in New Year

Despite being pleased with the beginning of the new year, Morris might look back fondly on 2020 as a year her success grew. She was a big winner at last year’s CMA Awards ceremony putting on a great performance and collecting three awards. At the ceremony, she won awards for Female Vocalist of the Year, Single of the Year and Song of the year for “The Bones.”

Another reason she will be thankful for 2020 is the arrival or her and husband Ryan Hurd’s first child. Born in March of last year, Hayes Andrew is already working on a music career of his own, recently showing off his piano skills.

As it did for most everyone, 2020 also brought its fair share of lows for Morris and her career. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic wreaked havoc on music artists hoping to perform live shows in front of their adoring fans. Morris is one of several artists forced to pull the plug on 2020 and 2021 tour plans. She took to social media to express her frustration but also thank her fans for their patience and understanding.
