Maren Morris got a surprise following her knockout performance of Aretha Franklin’s “Natural Woman” with Brandi Carlile at the CMT Artists of the Year celebration when she was presented with three RIAA plaques celebrating the success of her singles. The CMT Artists of the Year broadcast on Oct. 17 at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville celebrated the women in country music, and Morris was lauded backstage by Sony Music Nashville label execs with a Platinum certification for “I Could Use a Love Song” and “80s Mercedes” and a Double Platinum certification for her career-launching hit “My Church,” from her debut album Hero.
Morris has had a big year this year, collaborating with electronic house DJ and producer Zedd along with electronic duo Grey for her smash hit, “The Middle,” which spent six weeks at No. 1 at Top 40 Radio and five weeks at No. 1 at Hot AC radio. She also wrapped up the Niall Horan Flicker World Tour, which spanned across New Zealand, Australia, Canada, and the USA.
