Maren Morris Announces ‘Hero’ Deluxe Edition, International Tour Dates
Maren Morris has announced that she's releasing a deluxe edition of her Grammy-nominated album, Hero, on Friday (March 17), and is adding a European leg to her 2017 Hero Tour.
The new version of her hit album includes three previously unreleased tracks co-written by the singer: “Bummin’ Cigarettes,” “Space” and “Company You Keep.” This is in addition to the 11 songs on the album already in release. Morris has been performing the new songs while on her 2017 tour across the United States.
Morris' third single from the critically acclaimed album, "I Could Use a Love Song," is currently at country radio. Along with the exciting music news, the rising country star reveals that she's heading across the pond for international tour dates in Europe in late 2017.

The singer is set to perform in Ireland, England and Scotland for multiple dates in November. Up-and-coming singer-songwriter (and boyfriend) Ryan Hurd will join her on the United Kingdom trek as a supporting act.
Morris is currently on her first headlining tour in support of her major label debut studio album, which includes the hits "My Church" and "80s Mercedes." The Hero Tour kicked off in February and continues through spring, with the U.S. leg concluding at the Stagecoach Country Music Festival in California on April 29.
Morris scored four nominations in the 2017 ACM Awards for Album of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, Single Record of the Year and New Female Vocalist of the Year. Her ACM nods come after a huge year of accolades for the singer, including New Artist of the Year at the 2016 CMA Awards and a 2017 Grammy win for Best Country Solo Performance for "My Church," in addition to nominations for Best Country Album, Best Country Song and the all-genre Best New Artist at the 59th annual awards ceremony.
