Tuesday Was Maren Morris Day In Arlington, Texas
For a day, Maren Morris was queen in her hometown. The Texan was on hand to accept the official Maren Morris Day proclamation in Arlington, Texas on Tuesday (Dec. 27). It was a fitting close for what's been an unbelievable year for the 26-year-old.
The "My Church" singer was born and raised in Arlington. The proclamation was made by Mayor Jeff Williams at her mother's salon in downtown Arlington. In addition, the office of State Representative Tony Tinderholt presented Morris with a resolution and the flag that flew over the state capitol building when she was named CMA New Artist of the Year.
Morris posted about the event on her Instagram page, and the city of Arlington's website shared more photos of the event. The Grammy nominee plans to return the love. On Tuesday she announced she'd be giving proceeds from meet and greets held after stops on her Hero Tour to the fine arts program of her high school, Arlington Bowie High School.
Gifts keep coming for Morris. Earlier this week she revealed that Keith Urban had gifted her a Polaris Slingshot as an end-of-tour gift. She hauled the three-wheeled ride to Texas to let her dad keep it safe for her, but she did go for a spin with boyfriend Ryan Hurd first. The gifts could keep coming on Feb. 12. In addition to Best New Artist all genre, Morris is up for three awards in the country categories at the 2017 Grammy Awards.
