Maren Morris has released stripped down versions of several of her hit songs including "Girl" "The Bones," and "The Middle." The reimagined tracks officially dropped on Friday (July 31).
"Girl," which is the lead single and title track of Morris' second studio album, earned the country star her third No. 1 single. "Girl" was followed by "The Bones" which reached the top of the charts in February 2020.
Before releasing her Girl album, Morris collaborated with EDM hitmakers Zedd and Grey in 2018 for "The Middle." The song was a huge success and became an instant summer anthem for fans everywhere, ascending to the No. 5 spot on the Billboard Hot 100.
Now, Morris has totally reimagined each of these hit songs in a creative way. Her flawless, powerful vocals take each track to a new level that fans will love. Each new acoustic rendition can be heard in the videos below.
"Girl" "The Bones," and "The Middle" reimagined comes months after Morris shared two previously unreleased songs, "Just For Now" and "Takes Two."
The first track called "Just For Now" was written by Morris alongside her husband, Ryan Hurd and late producer Busbee, during sessions for her debut album Hero. The second, "Takes Two," come from the original recording sessions for Girl and was co-written by Morris with Sarah Aarons and Greg Kurstin.
