Maren Morris' 'Humble Quest' Debuts at #2 on Billboard's Top Country Albums Chart

Humble Quest, the new album from Grammy-winning superstar Maren Morris, debuts at #2 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart and #21 on the Billboard 200 today. Humble Quest-which broke the record for most first day and first week streams globally on Amazon Music for a country album by a female artist-was recently released to critical acclaim via Sony Music Nashville's Columbia Nashville imprint.

Maren spoke to Anthony Mason on "CBS Sunday Morning" yesterday. Additionally, watch her recent performances on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" and her Tiny Desk (Home) Concert for NPR Music.

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 and more-see full routing below and visit here for more information.

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.
