Live From New York, It’s Maren Morris on “Saturday Night Live”

Maren Morris is striking while the iron is hot.

The CMA New Artist of the Year will appear as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live on Dec. 10, while WWE star John Cena will be handling the hosting duties. In the past two years, a handful of country stars have performed on SNL, including Blake Shelton (January 2015), Zac Brown Band (March 2015), Chris Stapleton (January 2016) and Margo Price (April 2016).

It’s been a wild ride for Maren since winning the CMA New Artist of the Year award on Nov. 2. On Friday (Dec. 2), Maren teamed up with Alicia Keys for an episode of CMT Crossroads and she will be a guest on Chelsea Handler’s Netflix series Chelsea on Dec. 7.
