Watch Maren Morris Perform “To Hell & Back” at CMT Music Awards

Maren Morris delivered a stirring rendition of her single, “To Hell & Back,” as part of the CMT Music Awards on Oct. 21. Maren’s performance was recorded in Ashland City, Tenn., about 25 miles northwest of Nashville.

Penned by Maren, Jessie Jo Dillon and Laura Veltz, “To Hell & Back” is currently No. 37 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart after 29 weeks.

During a recent media Q&A, Maren revealed why she decided to release “To Hell & Back” as her new single during the pandemic.

“I chose ‘To Hell & Back’ to put out as a single right now because I think we’re in such a reflective time being sort of stuck at home either by ourselves or with our families, with our dogs, we just have a lot of time to have some introspection, and I feel like ‘To Hell & Back’ is very much about accepting your imperfections and the person in your life accepting them as well, whether that’s your partner or your friends or your family. I think it’s all about your halo’s a little bent, a little dirty, and that person still thinks you’re the cat’s meow. And I love that because it really is this unconditional sort of love that’s not based around ‘Well, you do this for me and you be this perfect person I put on a pedestal and then we can talk about loving each other forever.’ This is like, ‘I will love you no matter what sort of ashes we’re sitting in, because we’re sitting in them together.’”
