Maren Morris ‘SNL’ Performance Of “80s Mercedes” – WATCH VIDEO
Maren Morris sang “80s Mercedes” on this week’s “SNL.” The song is the second single off her album Hero. Earlier, Morris sang her hit “My Church” on “Saturday Night Live.” See the video below of Morris’s performance of “80s Mercedes.”
As Gossip Cop noted, this is the first time Morris has been the musical guest on “SNL.” She has, however, performed “80s Mercedes” before on TV. Morris sang the song in October on the “Ellen Degeneres Show.”
The 26-year-old country singer, who previously wrote songs for Tim McGraw and Kelly Clarkson, is on a roll. Just a few days ago, Morris was nominated for Grammys for Best Country Album, Best Country Song, Best Country Solo Performance, and Best New Artist. And last month, she won New Artist of the Year at the CMA Awards.
The video for “80s Mercedes” features Morris driving around with the top down in a 1980s-era Mercedes 380 SL. Much like her hit “My Church,” Morris sings about driving in the open road and how much she loves being “a ’90s baby in my ’80s Mercedes.” To date, the video has been watched nearly 3.3 million times.
“80s Mercedes” reached number 90 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It peaked at number 14 on the Country Airplay chart and 15 on the Hot Country Songs chart. Morris, who just wrapped up a tour with Keith Urban, will be back in New York on February 2 to kick off her headlining “Hero Tour.” She’ll then hit a slew of big cities, including Boston, Philadelphia, Dallas, and Nashville.
