Humble Quest Radio with Maren Morris
Humble Quest, Maren Morris’ third major-label album, is a window into her mind during two of the most unpredictable, cathartic, and life-changing years she’s experienced to date: She gave birth to her first child with her husband and “Chasing After You” collaborator Ryan Hurd; mourned the loss of busbee, one of her dear friends and closest colleagues; and weathered the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic without knowing when, or how, she and her band would return to the road. “We were stuck in the house for two years—not just from COVID, but our baby was born at the beginning of 2020,” she shared with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe. “Both being songwriters, after a few months of learning to be new parents, it was like, ‘Should we start being creative again? I don't know, what are we doing this for? There's no touring.’ It was sort of this free fall of not being able to tour or write towards a direction, and I feel like that freed us up to write about whatever we wanted.” Maren Morris is also putting the wisdom gained during this time to use as the host of her new four-episode Apple Music 1 show Humble Quest Radio, in which she will connect with fans and act as a confidant of sorts, sharing what she has learned and playing some of her favorite music along the way. Humble Quest Radio premieres March 29 on Apple Music 1.
