Maren Morris just cemented her status as 2016’s breakout country star ABC/Jimmy Fallon

From the very first note on her very first late-night performance, everyone knew that this was not going to be the sound of your ordinary female country music star. With her voice reaching those deep registers almost effortlessly, Maren Morris made quite an impression as she slayed her song “My Church” on the June 6 episode of “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.”

“Hearing the demo for the first time, it felt like the earth shook for a second,” she told “Billboard Magazine.” “When I thought of the title, I knew it would work: It was simple but universal. It’s not just that it’s fun to sing along to — it’s about finding that feeling of inspiration and peace.”

The singer is sure to impress yet again when she appears alongside Keith Urban and Brett Eldredge at the upcoming CMT Music Awards on June 8.
