Maren Morris teases something new for 2022 on social media
2022 is shaping up to be a busy year in the world of country music. Many artists are planning tours and new albums, and it looks like Maren Morris is throwing her hat in the ring. The “My Church” singer posted a video to Instagram on December 23, teasing fans that something new is coming in 2022.
The eight-second clip shows the back of an older car with a retro California license plate that says “Go.” A clip of a song plays on the video as a woman – most likely Morris – walks through the plane to the passenger side of the car. The screen then goes black before displaying “2022” on the screen.
The caption reads: “Pedal down, 2022.”
In addition to releasing a duet with her husband, Ryan Hurd, titled “Chasing After You,” Morris has remained fairly silent over the past year or so. His most recent album, Girl, was released in 2019, with plans to take the road record in 2020 on the RSVP Tour. Morris postponed the tour to 2021 due to the pandemic before canceling it entirely in December 2020. At the time, she assured fans that they would be reunited soon and that she would be working on her third album in the meantime. .
Although cryptic, Morris’s new post could be a sign that his album will arrive in the New Year. Maybe “Pedal down” is a song title, or maybe it’s a battle cry to get into 2022 full steam ahead. The word “Go” on the license plate could be another Easter egg revealing the title of a song or album. One thing is for sure, though: Fans are eager to see what the artist has up their sleeve, as they have flooded the comments with excitement.
If Morris is releasing a new album and taking it out on the road in the coming months, there’s a good chance she’ll be accompanied by a little companion. Morris and Hurd welcomed a baby boy, Hayes, in March 2020. It’s not uncommon for performers to take their families on tour, so don’t be surprised if we see him dance while his mum does a soundcheck.
