When Maren Morris debuted her Zedd collaboration “The Middle,” there was no telling what the reaction would be. The track ended up becoming one of the biggest songs of the summer, played across radio stations nationwide and appearing in Target commercials on television.

With the success of the track, Morris, Zedd and Grey earned three nominations for “The Middle” at the upcoming 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards. Morris also earned a nomination in Country Song of the Year for her single “Rich,” which appears on her debut album HERO.

Joining Morris in the Country Song of the Year category are songs from Kane Brown, Bebe Rexha ft. Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryan and Dan + Shay.
