Sam Hunt Pens Thank You Note to Maren Morris: ‘You’re So Talented and Strong’
In a post on Instagram Morris shared not only photos from the tour's final show in Nashville, but a picture of the heartwarming note Hunt hand-wrote to her. "Thank you for being a part of this tour. You're so talented and strong, he says in a personal and thoughtful message.
"You have a presence that draws people towards you. Own it and use it for good," he adds. "I won't forget this summer. God bless." Morris also shared a shot of herself hitting a killer note on stage, along with one snapped behind-the-scenes backstage in a fierce emerald velvet ensemble.
The "My Church" singer was an opening act for the duration of Hunt's massive tour, which ran from June through September and concluded with two sold-out shows at Nashville's Ascend Amphitheater. Chris Janson and Ryan Follese also served as opening acts on the road.
Morris won't have long to rest — she's heading to Europe for the international leg of her 2017 Hero Tour, making stops in England, Ireland and Scotland. She's also been tapped to be an opening act on former One Direction member Niall Horan's Flicker World Tour, taking part in the U.S. portion of the gig during the summer of 2018. Plus, she's up for three nominations at the 2017 CMA Awards this November, scoring nods in the categories of Female Vocalist of the Year, Music Video of the Year and Musical Event of the Year, the latter of two she's nominated with Thomas Rhett for their collaboration, "Craving You."
