GIRL ultimately reveals itself as just more generic pop music.

Her new album is not some psychedelic daydream but a down-to-Earth burst of reality that reminds me of the motto from another Texas pop culture treasure: clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose.

It’s a drag to have to say that too much of Morris’ new album Girl feels like it should be credited to “feat. Maren Morris.”

Morris shows she can both stick to tried-and-tested and veer wildly in various directions, always pulling it off with aplomb.

GIRL is a 14-song collection showcasing Morris at her prime, swerving lanes between genres while maintaining her deep and respectful country roots.

I like what I’ve heard so far! This is what Country music is now. It’s mostly pop influenced. Don’t judge an album by comparing it to the Country You grew up with, judge it amongst its peers. This is better than much of what’s out there nowadays(I like most contemporary Country music).

Beautiful Tracks ✨ GIRL and Common are stellar tracks. The vocals and lyrics are absolutely incredible. Can’t wait for the rest of the record on March 8th!!!

Does Money Talk COUNTRY IS DEAD. THIS IS YELLING AT THE COUNTRY MUSIC INDUSTRY. The top chart is showing a truth to every artist who is still making country music that is GOING POP EARNS MORE. Musicians make what people want to buy, not what people can resonate. SO SAD. I'm not saying this is a bad one, but definitely not a country one.

Lovin this girl! I love the fact that Maren has always been herself. All genre is is a name. Music is music. To me what matters is the artist and what they put into each song to make it into something great! Pop or country she’s doing what she loves. I wish I can do that! You go girl! #Gurlpower!
