Just because Maren Morris is soaring up the pop charts with "The Middle" with Zedd and Grey, that doesn't mean she's ready to leave Country music behind. In fact, when it comes to her next album, Maren tells us she's sticking to what she loves. ["I don't want to stray too far from my roots in the sophomore album because I think a lot of artists get caught in that trap of being like, 'Oh, I want to do something so unexpected that no one's going to get it that fell in love with the first album,' so I think like I'll always be rooted in Country and like I'm from Texas. Those will be my roots and I think all the lyrics to my songs are Country structured."] SOUNDCUE (:24 OC: . . . are Country structured.)
"The Middle" is approaching the Top 10 on the pop charts, while her new single, "Rich," is just beginning its climb up the country charts.
