January 13, 2022— Grammy-winning superstar Maren Morris’ new album, Humble Quest, is
slated for release on March 25 via Sony Nashville. The album features lead single, “Circles
Around This Town,” released last week.
Maren began writing the songs on Humble Quest in the beginning of the pandemic as a series of
major life changes unfolded—new motherhood, an upended career, the death of beloved friend
and collaborator Michael Busbee and more, further compounded by lockdown. She felt control
over life quickly slipping until she had a freeing realization—she was never in control in the first
place. It’s from this place of personal truth and clarity amid darkness that Maren’s most genuine
songs yet began to flow, creating an important distraction from the times rather than a snapshot
Maren found herself reckoning with humility in ways she’d never imagined as she thought about
how the goal of appearing humble puts artists, especially women, in a box with unrealistic
demands to keep them small. Humble Quest documents Maren’s journey to redefining humility
on her own terms as a grounded state of understanding one’s own truth rather than the capacity
to appear authentic to others.
Produced by frequent collaborator Greg Kurstin (Adele, Paul McCartney, Foo Fighters) and
written alongside her husband Ryan Hurd, Julia Michaels, Jimmy Robbins, Natalie Hemby,
Laura Veltz and Jon Green on Busbee’s piano, Humble Quest finds Maren on a journey to
embrace the imperfections in her life through snapshots of her rises and falls, overshares,
lullabies, wine-soaked conversations with one old friend and a final goodbye to another one.
“Am I humble enough now?” Maren asks herself sometimes. “Maybe. Or maybe I still haven’t
found it yet. Or maybe, who cares as long as your friends and, most importantly, you know what
your heart is all about? But here’s to taking the quest to find out.”
In addition, Maren is nominated for two Grammy awards this year: Best Country Song for
“Better Than We Found It” and Best Country Duo/Group Performance for “Chasing After
You,” the #1, Platinum-certified collaboration with her husband Ryan Hurd.
One of music’s brightest stars, Maren released her massively acclaimed, record-shattering album
GIRL in 2019, one of country’s most celebrated albums that year which spawned smash hits
including the four times Platinum-certified, Grammy-nominated “The Bones;” and the Platinum-
certified #1 title track. Maren won 2021 ACM Awards for Female Artist of the Year—for the
second year in a row—and Song of the Year and three trophies at the 2020 CMA
Awards. GIRL arrived three years after Maren’s breakout, Platinum-certified debut
album HERO, for which she won countless accolades including Grammy, ACM and CMA
