Maren Morris sits down with Kyle Meredith to talk about her latest album, Humble Quest, and how it tells the story of her road to success using specifically personal stories in the vein of classic ’60s and ’70s country.

The Grammy-winning artist also discusses finding her way to happier songs after coming out of a depression, taking inspiration from Jack White as a way to kick her writing into gear, and adding a little darkness to her romantic musical moments. Morris also talks about the future of The Highwomen, the supergroup that includes Brandi Carlile, Amanda Shires, and Natalie Hemby.

Elsewhere, the pop country star touches on the odds that Americana and mainstream country face in modern music, and how the class of musicians in which she finds herself — including Chris Stapleton, Kacey Musgraves, Eric Church, and Miranda Lambert — are able to carry more creative freedom into the genre.
