Maren Morris Takes Part In Bluebird Cafe Documentary
Maren Morris led a sold-out songwriter round with Ryan Hurd, Jimmy Robbins and Laura Veltz recently at the famed Bluebird Cafe. Proceeds from the special performance were donated to The HEROES Fund, Maren’s charity benefiting fine arts programs and music education in public schools.
The event was filmed for Bluebird, the first-ever in-depth documentary about the influence the 90-seat venue has had on singers, songwriters and popular music in general. The film is in the final stages of production and heading towards post-production stage.
