March 25, 2022—Humble Quest, the highly-anticipated new album from Grammy-winning superstar Maren Morris, is out today on Sony Music Nashville’s Columbia Nashville imprint—get it here. The video for “Humble Quest” also debuts today—watch here.

Maren will perform on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” tonight, with appearances on “Late Night With Seth Meyers” and “The Howard Stern Show” to follow on March 28.

Furthermore, Maren’s Humble Quest Tour will see her play headline dates across the U.S. this year. Kicking off in June, the tour includes stops at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, New York’s Radio City Music Hall, Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl, the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater, one Canadian stop in Toronto on July 16 @ the Budweiser stage and more—see full routing below and visit for more information.

Humble Quest features the much-lauded “Nervous,” “Background Music” and “Circles Around This Town,” which broke Amazon Music’s record for most streams for a country song debut by a female artist and is currently Top 20 and climbing at country airplay charts.

Humble Quest is receiving widespread critical acclaim…

“Pocket-size but with alpha presence, like a country music Mighty Mouse.”

“Morris’ full breadth is encapsulated on Humble Quest…”

Maren Morris

“fascinating and proudly unresolved.”

Humble Quest…is proof of process, a record of how vulnerable she felt while she navigated this transformative period.”

Maren Morris

Maren began writing the songs on Humble Quest in the beginning of the pandemic as a series of major life changes unfolded—new motherhood, an upended career, the death of beloved friend and collaborator Michael Busbee and more, further compounded by lockdown. She felt control over life quickly slipping until she had an epiphany—she was never in control in the first place. This inspired her to reckon with the concept of humility as she thought about how the goal of appearing humble puts artists, especially women, in a box with unrealistic demands. Humble Quest documents Maren’s journey to redefining humility on her own terms as a grounded state of understanding one’s own truth rather than the capacity to appear authentic to others.

Produced by frequent collaborator Greg Kurstin (Adele, Paul McCartney, Foo Fighters) and written alongside her husband Ryan Hurd, Julia Michaels, Jimmy Robbins, Natalie Hemby, Laura Veltz and Jon Green on Busbee’s piano, Humble Quest is Maren’s most genuine collection of songs, tracing her journey to embrace the imperfections in her life through snapshots of her rises and falls, overshares, lullabies, wine-soaked conversations with one old friend and a final goodbye to another one.
