Country music’s newest hotshot Maren Morris dropped by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” in Los Angeles on Oct. 19 to perform her latest track, “80’s Mercedes” — a cut off her debut album, “Hero”

The 26-year-old singer, who has five nods for the upcoming 50th Annual CMA Awards, looked fabulous in the midst of billows of smoke that filled the stage. She rocked a pair of glittery-gold short shorts and coupled them with a flirty, crop top. And those killer, strappy heels were enough to make any fan swoon!

Aside from Maren’s stunning appearance, her performance proved that she’s a standout in country music. With her heels planted in front of a neon-colored sign, she busted out the retro ode to classic cars and ‘90s babies. When the chorus came, she tore the microphone off the stand and electrified fans with a few impressive high notes.
