“She bangs,” Morris captioned the post, likely a reference to 2000 Ricky Martin song of the same name.

The singer tagged her glam team, including Nashville hairstylist and colorist Marwa Bashier, makeup artist Emily Gray and wardrobe stylist Dani Michelle

Morris is currently nominated for three CMA Awards, including Female Vocalist of the Year, as well as Music Video of the Year and Musical Event of the Year for “Chasing After You,” her duet with her husband Ryan Hurd

“Maren and I met writing songs and we’ve sung on each other’s records and written together, but this is the first time we’ve gotten to do an actual duet together,” Hurd shared. “It feels like the timing is really perfect and it’s a full-circle moment to get to make music together in this way.” 

“Chasing After You” is featured on Hurd’s debut album, Pelago
