Awesome. Overused word for the most part, awesome is, but in this case, it is the right one. Perfect record, really. These are all great songs. My favorites are "My Church", "Drunk Girls Don't Cry" and "80s Mercedes", but they are all very good. But if you're looking for a "country" record, this is not it. But if you're looking for a record with tremendous music with fantastic vocals, this is exactly what you need. Undefinable as far as categories go. I would personally call it Jazzy Pop-Country, but that's me. Maren's voice is sultry and smoky, but then turns on a dime and becomes honest and alto. The lyrics on the songs are well thought out. Most of the songs are truly upbeat songs and almost all of them have catchy grooves to them, like "Sugar". This is a record I am happy to have spent my money on. It's worth it and then some. Really great record.

The music is very good even terrific on a few tracks! I've watched or listened to most of the tunes. There is some inconsistency in the quality of the sound. She's country and a bit of a country pop singer. She'll need better material to sing and some of the tracks instrumentation over powers the vocals. None the less she's very talented, a very promising talent.

The autographed copy I got was great and I won't open it. The jewel case arrived badly cracked, which is happening more and more with the cheap packaging Amazon ships a single CD in. If it wasn't for the autograph I would have returned it.

I bought this album simply because it fell in line with other albums that I've ordered. I had never heard this artist before. I found that I quite enjoyed her music, felt Amazon's recommendations were on point, and will probably look into more of her music in the future.

I'm listening to this album "Hero" on Prime and have had it on repeat for days. I love this whole album, even though I wouldn't exactly consider it "country" and probably anyone expecting "country" is going to be disappointed. I'm an 80's kid and this reminds me very much of Sheryl Crow. I looked for "My Church" specifically and like many others have never heard this artist's name even though the song is getting a lot of play. While "My Church" is a fantastic song, I like every single one of the songs on the album for different reasons. I've you've only bought "My Church" consider giving the rest of the album a shot as long as you're not hung up on this being country, you might like it. And apparently she's been around a while. This is her fourth album. I plan to check out some of her earlier work now.

I love it! I really like the 80s Mercedes song because I have a 81 Mercedes 380SL and even a white leather jacket! A totally cool song. I like all the songs but the Mercedes, Sugar and I'd be rich are my faves. Maren should have a number one CD with this!

Maren Morris' "Hero" may be shamelessly commercial, but there's so much ear candy that it's quite satisfying for someone with a musical sweet tooth. "My Church" jumps out and grabs you by the collar and reels you in with its hooks and Morris' vocals expressive and joyful, "I find my soul revival singing every single verse, yeah I guess that's my church." "I Could Use A Love Song" sounds more country than most of the tracks on the set and laces a pretty melody as Morris plays the disappointed lover, "It takes me back just like that when it comes on to a time when I wouldn't roll my eyes at a guy and a girl make it work in the world." "80s Mercedes" charms me completely with its throbbing country-rap beat that breaks into a fully hooked chorus, "Pop the top down like a summer dream; She's my teenage time machine." "Drunk Girls Don't Cry" has a trailer-park romance appeal, "If it was the first time, I would understand; but it's the third time he got a second chance." "Just Another Thing" rivets me with its bounce-beat and boy-shout chorus, "Add your name to the list of all the things I can't seem to kick." "Hero" is a career-making CD, well worth discovering. Enjoy!

Got six CDs in 2 different orders. This singer is fabulous for country music. CBS Sunday Morning even did a story on her a few weeks ago. Too cool for school. Great pipes. Wonderful songs. Awesome song-writing talent. (And voice.) Gave 5 of the 6 away to other country fans. (I only need one CD.)
