Maren Morris - «Circles Around This Town» Video

Trying to make it in good ol’ Nashville, or any music industry isn’t easy. Maren Morris reflect upon her own journey with her new song. Take a listen and watch now!



“A couple hundred songs and the ones that finally worked was the one about a car and the one about a church”

"'Circles Around This Town' is special because it's probably the most specifically autobiographical song I've ever written," she told Apple Music 1's New Music Daily. "All the songs that I write are about my story, but this one was very specific to my journey from Texas to Nashville nine years ago to become a songwriter, when then led in to me becoming an artist that I am today." - Maren to People Magazine.

The single is the first from her upcoming album, and according to her, the most personal song she’s ever had out. She told people magazine that working on her new album during the pandemic helped her held her head above water. She had just become a mom for the first time when the pandemic broke out.

Morris is currently up for two Grammy awards— best country song for "Better Than We Found It" and best country duo/group performance for "Chasing After You," a song with husband Hurd.

[Verse 1]

I swear I don't know how I trusted

A Montero with the AC busted

A couple bad demos on a burned CD

Would take me all the way to Tenneesse

I showed up to the new apartment

First month's, last month's, two deposits

Hadn't heard the sound of a door slam yet

Thank god I was an optimist


[Chorus]

I drove circles around this town

Tryin' to write circles around this town

Tryna say somethin' with meanin'

Somethin' worth singin' about

I've been kind and I've been ruthless

Yeah, got here but the truth is

Thought when I hit it, it'd all look different

But I still got the pedal down

Drivin' circles around this town


[Verse 2]

So many times, I thought about lеavin'

Got my ass kicked tryin' to compete with

Evеrybody else's ones that got away

Hung around long enough to catch a break

A couple hundred songs and the ones that finally worked

That I wrote

[Chorus]

Drivin' circles around this town

Tryin' to write circles around this town

Tryna say somethin' with meanin'

Somethin' worth singin' about

I've been kind and I've been ruthless

Yeah, got here but the truth is

Thought when I hit it, it'd all look different

But I still got the pedal down

Drivin' circles around this town

Drivin' circles around this town

Hey!


[Instrumental Break]


[Chorus]

I drove circles around this town

Tryin' to write circles around this town

Tryna say somethin' with meanin'

Somethin' worth singin' about

I've been kind and I've been ruthless

Yeah, got here but the truth is

Thought when I hit it, it'd all look different

But I still got the pedal down

I still get lost, I still get found

Drivin' circles around this town

Oh yeah
