Oh, she almost had it!
Maren Morris gathered a group of her closest friends for her bachelorette party this past week in Nashville, and they obviously had a blast. Just check out this video from the party showing Maren attempting to recreate that famous scene from “Dirty Dancing.” You know, the one where Patrick Swayze lifts Jennifer Grey up in the air after she runs into his arms.
Maren and her pals had the “Dirty Dancing” song “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” playing in the background as she got a running start to attempt the bold move. It looked like her friend was just about to catch her and lift her in the air, but things fell apart and Maren and her pal went tumbling to the floor.
Maren’s caption says, “Fulfilling every bachelorette stereotype over here.”
We noticed a few familiar faces on hand for Maren’s bachelorette party, including RaeLynn, Cassadee Pope and Lucie Silvas.
Wouldn’t you love to be a fly on the wall for that party?
Maren is counting down the days to marrying her longtime love, singer/songwriter Ryan Hurd, next month. She just had a wedding dress fitting this week and took some questions from fans while waiting for the fitting to start.
We learned a little bit about what her wedding dress will look like. She told a fan, “I’m having it made to resemble my mom’s wedding dress, so it’s shoooort.”
Maren also joked that the wedding might be “tequila themed.” As for the flower arrangements, she hints, “Lots of succulents.”
We won’t be seeing any new ink on Maren before her wedding day, though. One fan asked if she planned on getting more tattoos, and she replied, “I’m pumping the brakes on tats for now.”
On the music front, Maren is in hardcore work mode this spring getting her sophomore album recorded. She’ll be laying down tracks for that project very soon before she hits the road with pop star Niall Horan. You’ll recall that Maren teamed up with Niall of One Direction fame at the CMA Awards last November.
The trek with Niall will take Maren all over the globe, and there’s one spot she’s especially excited to visit for the first time — “South America! Never been,” she says in the Q&A.
Maren also talked about her massive new pop hit, “The Middle,” with Zedd. She says, “It is so freaking cool seeing my name alongside these other incredible artists on the chart!”
On the country side, Maren’s new single, “Rich,” will be tearing up the radio airwaves very soon, and she recruited Ryan to be in the upcoming video with her.
It’s the final radio single from her debut album, “Hero.”
