Dec. 27, 2016, Declared Maren Morris Day in Arlington, Texas

Maren Morris may have released a killer debut album and won a CMA in 2016, but she closed out the year by receiving a very special honor from her hometown: Dec. 27 was declared Maren Morris Day in Arlington, Texas.

On Dec. 27, Arlington Mayor Jeff Williams presented Morris with a plaque and proclamation in recognition of Maren Morris Day at her mother’s salon, located in downtown Arlington. The office of Texas State Representative Tony Tinderholt also presented Morris with a resolution and the flag that flew over the Texas state capitol building when she was named New Artist of the Year at the 2016 CMA Awards. More photos from the special event can be found on the city’s website.

Born and raised in Arlington — a central Texas town right in between Dallas and Forth Worth — Morris lived there right up until she moved to Nashville to pursue her country music dream. After years of songwriting, Morris was finally able to release her first major-label album, Hero, in 2016, to much critical and commercial acclaim. So far, the debut disc has earned the singer a No. 1 album and two Top 20 singles, her New Artist of the Year trophy at the CMAs and four nominations at the upcoming 2017 Grammy Awards.

Morris will launch her own headlining Hero Tour in early February. Additionally, she will be performing as part of the 2017 Country Radio Seminar’s New Faces of Country Music show later that month.
