Country singer-songwriter Maren Morris has released a new track “Rich” off her upcoming album Hero today (May 13).
“Rich” takes that popular maxim, “If I had a dollar every time…” and uses it to make fun of a toxic relationship where a man makes promise after promise but never keeps them. “If I had a dollar every time that I swore you off/ And a twenty every time that I picked up when you called/ And a crisp new Benjamin for when you’re here then gone again/ And a dollar every time I was right about ya after all/ Boy, I’d be rich,” Morris sings in the first verse.
She details all the ways she would spend that money if she got paid for letting her man treat her the way he does, wearing everything from Prada to dripping in diamonds with Diddy. “Rich” has a late 90s alt rock feel mixed with a contemporary Nashville sound.
Morris was featured on CMT Next Women of Country and will hit the road with Keith Urban beginning June 2nd, as she’s set to open for his upcoming Ripcord Tour.
Fans who pre-order Morris’ new album Hero before it drops on June 3 will receive instant downloads of “Rich” as well as the four other songs she’s released, “My Church,” “90’s Mercedes,” “Drunk Girls Don’t Cry” and “I Wish I Was.”
