Morris recovers from tonsillectomy

Tuesday, May 3, 2016 – Maren Morris, of "My Church" fame, is recovering from a tonsillectomy on Monday.

Morris said in a tweet, "I have heard a tonsillectomy is one of the worst recoveries but I can't be getting sick all the time."

"I get strep almost every six weeks, on the dot," Morris wrote from Nashville's Vanderbilt University Medical Center on Instagram. " So I'm hoping this will improve that. No signs of gore quite yet post surgery for me, but I hear from people day 5-8 or 9 are the worst. Thank you for your encouragement, though!"

Morris' next concert date listed on her web site is May 21 in Nashville at the Grand Ole Opry.

Morris is touring with Keith Urban and will release her debut on June 3.

CD reviews for Maren Morris

GIRL CD review - GIRL
Maren Morris, who had a huge pop hit with "The Middle," is never going to be anybody's ideal traditional country singer. Although, thankfully, there isn't anything that mind-numbingly beat-driven on her "GIRL" album, this is a full-length that will likely appeal as much to Morris' pop fans, as her country followers. The first great song, "A Song For Everything," addresses that mysterious intersection between one's favorite songs and significant life events. »»»
Hero CD review - Hero
Maren Morris scored a hit out of the box with "My Church," the best of 11 songs on her major label full-length debut. The Texan infuses the song she wrote with uber producer busbee (he's worked with everyone from Keith Urban on "Ripcord" to 5 Seconds of Summer and Shakira and is one of three producers here including Morris) with mighty vocals powering a midtempo, soulful reading extolling the redemptive powers of playing music with the windows rolled down. »»»
Maren Morris CD review - Maren Morris
After going the indie route in her native Texas, Maren Morris releases a five-song EP to serve as an intro for the hoped for masses. Morris, who has penned songs for Tim McGraw and Kelly Clarkson, starts off with the edgier sounding "My Church." With an easy-going pace, Morris is elastic with her words, puts a bit of twang and gospel feel into her delivery and sings with authority when she asks "Can I get a hallelujah?/Can I get an amen?" But her salvation is FM radio - »»»
