The 2021 GRAMMYs will air this Sunday, March 14 on CBS, and it seems Maren Morris is gearing up for a performance alongside music great, John Mayer. According to Headline Planet, the news first broke when CBS Press Photos showed the two rehearsing their collaboration, after which Morris teased the news on social media with a selfie of herself and Mayer.
“We’ll see you at the GRAMMYs,” she wrote with the big eyes emoji, tagging Mayer.
Although CBS did not share which song Morris and Mayer will be performing , Morris did confirm in a pre-show interview that she will be performing “The Bones,” which is up for Best Country Song at the show.
“It’s been a couple years since I performed on the GRAMMY stage, so I’m just happy to be back and I’m so happy that they’re doing it safely in person,” the “GIRL” singer shared in an EPK interview with CBS. “It just feels like a real show, so I’m very excited to be a part of it.”
The award for Best Country Song is awarded to the songwriters of the song, so if won, it will go to Morris and her co-writers Jimmy Robbins and Laura Veltz. The writers are up against “Crowded Table” by The Highwomen (which Morris sang on but did not write), Miranda Lambert’s “Bluebird,” Ingrid Andress’ “More Hearts Than Mine,” and Old Dominion’s “Some People Do.”
The country nominations at this year’s GRAMMYs features a wide range of artists. Other nominees include Eric Church, Brandy Clark, Vince Gill, Mickey Guyton, Little Big Town, Lady A, Dan + Shay and Brothers Osborne. Ingrid Andress is the only country artist up for an all-genre award at the event, as she is a contender for Best New Artist. The show will also see performances from Miranda Lambert, Mickey Guyton, Brandi Carlile, Taylor Swift and many more.
The GRAMMYs, hosted by Trevor Noah, will air Sunday, March 14 at 8/7 Central on CBS.
