Maren Morris is getting 2019 off to an amazing start, as the country music hitmaker has not only just released a new song, "Girl," but also has announced plans for the Girl: The World Tour alongside Cassadee Pope and RaeLynn.

"I just love them and support them, so I felt like I had to have them out on the Girl Tour," Morris tells Taste of Country Nights' Sam Alex in a new interview.

"It's basically an excuse to bring my friends out and hang out for months. I also know that RaeLynn and Cassadee (Pope) both have new music coming out and new projects at the same time of our tour, so I think its just an amazing celebration of all of our new endeavors to the fans," she adds.

These strong women won't only be bringing the party to the stage, but to the backstage, as well. "I love having a glass of wine after the show and go hang out with the girls and listen to music," Morris says. "Maybe we will have some movie nights."

The Grammy-nominated star reveals that Pope will own the opening slot of the tour for the first half, and RaeLynn will help wrap the run overseas. Morris was over the pond recently to share pieces of her upcoming new album with a special group of fans. She has yet to announce when the full project will be available.

"It was so good for me to see their faces up close and talk to them and see me as a human being," she says. "It was just a really beautiful thing."

Expect MM2 to have collaborations and a song written with husband Ryan Hurd.
