Red Rocks Amphitheatre
Red Rocks Park Rd, Morrison, CO 80465
Sam Hunt is the headliner for this two-night Red Rocks stand, but Maren Morris is the head turner, with songwriting that will snap your neck off your shoulders. Last year, the rising country star earned a Grammy for Best Country Solo Performance for the single “My Church,” and shone brightly on Saturday Night Live. The 27-year-old’s first EP came out in 2005, and Morris is more than ready for the big spotlight with major-label debut Hero, which boasts oodles of crossover appeal. Morris mixes influences from pop, soul, R&B and mainstream culture of the past two decades, resulting in a sound that’s specific to her experience and more authenticity than all the bro-down cowboys yodeling about cut-offs and dirt roads.
