Maren Morris will follow up her multi-week No. 1 single, “The Bones,” with the release of “To Hell & Back.”
The new tune, which was penned by Maren, Jessie Jo Dillon and Laura Veltz, will impact country radio on March 30.
“I wrote ‘To Hell & Back’ with my friends Jessie Jo Dillon and Laura Veltz, who wrote ‘Rich’ with me, so they’re kind of my go-to girls on really, really important songs,” says Maren. “I feel like this song came out of a time when I was ending a relationship and I was in a really dark place. And I had kinda started growing deeper feelings for this new guy and he was so accepting and non-judgmental of my process of healing from that other relationship, and kinda gave me space and understood my mess. And I thought that was such a pure kind of love to receive from someone, where they’re like, ‘I know you’re not ready for us yet, I know that you’re not ready for me yet, but I’m gonna wait until you get out of hell,’ and so that’s where that song was inspired from.”
