We take you behind the scenes and explore the making of one of our favorite tunes with The Song Remembers When…
Maren Morris’ second single “80s Mercedes” was a song she wrote with her producer busbee. It was written the same week they wrote “My Church,” and Maren said that it’s probably why they’re similar songs – both about driving around in a car.
The idea for the song came after a friend of Maren’s told her about a guy she was dating that had an 80’s Mercedes. Maren wrote it down because she felt that it would make a great song title. Her goal was to have the song express the feeling of driving in a car with the windows down on a fun Saturday night.
It would be one of four songs from Maren’s debut album Hero to make the Top 15 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.
It’s this week’s The Song Remembers When – Maren Morris and “80s Mercedes.”
