Maren Morris is ready for the 52nd Annual ACM Awards, coming up Sunday, April 2. She just unveiled this hot, new look on Instagram, and we can’t wait to see her rock it onstage during her performance.
Maren is also among the first ACM Awards winners announced this year. She has been named ACM New Female Artist of the Year, and it’s quite a sweet victory for her.
She says of the win, “I was definitely shocked. Just being nominated at all is a huge accomplishment, and so when I found out that I won, I was so overwhelmed… in such a good way. I remember going to the ACMs last year, and it was my first-ever awards show to go to, and get dressed up for, and I never thought a year later I would be sitting in the audience and be nominated.”
Actually walking the red carpet this year as a winner is going to be even more surreal for Maren.
She adds, “To be going, and to already be a winner is so amazing.”
Maren is nominated for several other trophies, including Album of the Year for “Hero” and Female Vocalist of the Year. Her pal Miranda Lambert is nominated along with her in both of those categories, and her 2016 tourmate, Keith Urban, is up for a leading seven trophies.
Maren says, “I just feel like I’m in a class of all my buddies.”
Tune in to see Maren, Keith, Miranda and many more stars perform on the 52nd Annual ACM Awards airing at 8 p.m. ET on Sunday, April 2 on CBS.
