Maren Morris Sits ‘Rich’ With 2018 ACM Awards Performance
With a giant sign made of glowing lights spelling out the words "Rich" in the background, Morris owned the stage with her killer confidence, strutting around the stage while chanting: "Boy I'd be rich, head to toe Prada / Benz in the driveway, yacht in the water / Vegas at the Mandarin, high roller gambling / Me and Diddy drippin' diamonds like Marilyn."
Her peers in the crowd were feeling the smooth lyrics and Morris' suave deliver, as the camera panned to Miranda Lambert who could be seen singing and bopping along. Keith Urban, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani were also feeling it, swaying to the beat.
The young singer looked like a shining star in her sultry silver dress and star decals adorning her curly locks. Morris brought the chic showcase to a confetti finish that showered the arena, earning herself a standing ovation from her country music peers.
Morris is up for some of the night's biggest awards, including Female Vocalist of the Year alongside Carrie Underwood, Lambert, Kelsea Ballerini and the evening's fabulous host, Reba McEntire. She scored a double nomination in the category for her duet with Thomas Rhett on "Craving You" and her heartfelt "Dear Hate" that features background vocals from Vince Gill.
"Rich" serves as the fourth single off Morris' debut album, Hero, following the breakthrough "My Church," vibrant "80s Mercedes" and her first No. 1 hit, "I Could Use a Love Song."
