Maren Morris is adept at blending pop and country elements, her ultimate example being the now-classic single “The Middle”. Her third album has met with acclaim, a solid set of songs exploring her life in a relatable way. She reflects on some tough times (postnatal depression, the loss of her collaborator Busbee and COVID19 isolation) but pleasingly doesn’t let these overwhelm the album. AllMusic described it as “openhearted and reflective”. We look forward to exploring the album this week.
