Maren Morris "Nervous" Song Review

Superstar Maren Morris released a new track “Nervous” off of her forthcoming album on Friday, March 11th. Humble Quest will be out on March 25th and will be Morris’s third studio


Morris has already shown fans a peak of what is to come on her highly anticipated new LP.

“Circles Around This Town” is the lead single that details how she was able to find her way through the music business. The other single fans have gotten to hear is “Background Music” that further demonstrates the singer’s growth. The Texas native said described her new music as “my rises, my overshares, my lullabies, my wine-soaked conversations with a dear friend, and my final goodbye to one.” Morris has always given her fans an honest look into her world, and that’s what everyone can continue to expect.

“Nervous” is self-realization and examination in the form of a song. The opening of the track gives an uneasy feeling, much like the title suggests. As the song continues, the chord progression leads into a rock-inspired chorus. There is moodiness within the song that sounds as if it’s a 2000s teen thriller soundtrack contender. The track seems to continuously build with every verse.

“You make me nervous, putting my reservations out of service, making me feel like every secret’s worth it, it’s working, trying to hide my desire below the surface,” Morris opens. The singer-songwriter has been open about a musicians need to fit into a certain mold. Whether it be about feeling nervous in her career or in a relationship, the song can strike a chord with anyone who hears it. “You make me wonder, how this part of me went undiscovered,” is a definitive line within the song. It creates a shift from feeling nervous to the openness about the possibility of something new. Sometimes opportunity strikes fear as well as excitement.
