Best New Artist Nominees Kelsea Ballerini & Maren Morris Talk Repping The Girls at the Grammys

Best New Artist Nominees Kelsea Ballerini & Maren Morris Talk Repping The Girls at the Grammys

Are you familiar with Kelsea Ballerini and Maren Morris at all? If you aren’t, you should be.

The only female artists to be nominated at the 2017 Grammy Awards for Best New Artist, are also country artists — and you need to be paying attention to them. There’s a reason they’re nominated.

Kelsea shared in a new interview about being nominated: “It’s the people that love music, do music, judge music, fight for music for a living, saying, ‘We’ve listened to 500 hundred new artists that are eligible this year and we think you’re one of the best five.’ That makes me feel cooler than I have ever felt in my life.”

She added, “I definitely feel like for any female, the odds weren’t necessarily in our favor…we were really maybe underrated a bit in the beginning because we were on this independent label.”

Maren, who is up for three other awards at the event, says the same: “I think it’s a huge step forward for people taking women into consideration because you have to have another perspective on the radio, and I think the Grammys have done a really great solid by recognizing quality art. And I think the girls really brought it this year.”

Songs you MUST listen to from Kelsea and Maren: “Secondhand Smoke” and “I Could Use A Love Song“.

Maia Mitchell Dishes on Callie's Arrest on 'The Fosters': 'Stef & Callie Will Connect Over This'

Maia Mitchell Dishes on Callie's Arrest on 'The Fosters': 'Stef & Callie Will Connect Over This'

Maia Mitchell is slaying the black carpet at the Spotify Best New Artist Nominees party earlier this week in Los Angeles.

The Fosters actress stepped out for the event with Rudy Mancuso, Katelyn Tarver, Echosmith, James Maslow, Charlie Puth, Daya, Maren Morris, Symon, and Noah Cyrus.

Earlier, Maia opened up about Callie’s arrest on The Fosters, dishing that her character and mom Stef will connect even more.

“She really just needs to go give a statement because she’s worried about the other people and she wants to give all of the information,” Maia shared. “Mike is very much involved as well because he’s at the police station anyway. You see the mothers find out the full extent.”

She adds, “Stef and Callie really connect over their sense of social justice and that kind of need to fix everything. They’re very similar in a lot of ways. I don’t think Stef is mad at her. She really understands [the situation]…they’re just worried.”

Maren Morris Drops Debut Album 'Hero' - Stream & Download Now!

Maren Morris Drops Debut Album 'Hero' - Stream & Download Now!

We’ve spent the entire weekend listening to Maren Morris‘s new album, Hero, and it’s safe to say that JJJ is obsessed.

The 26-year-old country singer dropped the new record on Friday (June 3), which features her hit “My Church”, “80s Mercedes”, and nine more songs that our ears can’t get enough of.

“I Wish I Was” was the song which inspired Maren to name the album Hero.

“’I Wish I Was’ is the most autobiographical song on this record and I admittedly was not the hero in that story, but I am the hero in mine,” Maren shared. “I’ve come such a long way from who I was in Texas, who I am as a writer, who I am as a woman today. I think the message of this record is self acceptance and awareness, and that to me is heroic.”

Be sure to download Maren‘s Hero on iTunes NOW — or, if you buy at Target, you’ll get three additional songs — “Bummin’ Cigarettes,” “Space” and “Company You Keep”.

Maren Morris Takes Everyone To 'My Church' On Good Morning America

Maren Morris gets a cup of coffee ahead of her performance on Good Morning America in New York City on Monday (April 25).

The 26-year-old country singer performed her first single “My Church” off of her upcoming debut album, Hero.

“I listen to everything, and I think that innately influences what I write,” Maren recently shared about her musical tastes.

She added, “I hope there is a place for me in the country landscape, but I’m not too precious about it either. I love all types of music, and I think the genre lines are starting to get thinner every year.”

Hero is out on June 3rd.
