Editors' Notes A contemporary pop spin on feel-good, windows-down country, Hero is the debut studio album from Maren Morris. The Texas native cut her teeth writing songs for Tim McGraw and Kelly Clarkson, but her fresh perspectives and knack for radio-ready pop hooks caught the attention of executives in Nashville, and earned her comparisons to crossover stars like Sheryl Crow and Kacey Musgraves. Fittingly, Hero includes Top 40 contenders, like the carefree anthem “80’s Mercedes,” alongside soulful country tributes like “My Church,” a ballad about Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, and the healing power of FM radio. “When this wonderful world gets heavy and I need to find my escape,” she sings, “I just keep the wheels rolling, radio scrolling, until my sins wash away.”
