Andra Day Presents the Visionary Award to Maren Morris

Andra Day presents the Visionary award to Maren Morris at Billboard’s Women In Music 2024.

Andra Day:
Eight years ago, Maren Morris and I were both honored here at the Billboard Women In Music. I received the Powerhouse Award and she was nominated for the Breakthrough Star and I am so happy to be back here to present Maren the Visionary Award in recognition of all that she’s accomplished since then.

Just a few of her achievements 22 Hot Country Songs entries, 12 Hot 100 hits, three Billboard Music Awards, two No. 1 albums on the Top Country Albums Chart and a Grammy for Best Solo Country Performance for “My Church,” not to mention multiple collaborations with noted artists such as Zedd and Grey on the hit single “The Middle” and forming the supergroup, the Highwomen. These are incredible numbers but what really adds up for all of her fans including me, is Maren’s powerful voice, both as an artist and as an advocate for underrepresented performers in country music.

Maren has worked tirelessly to lift up those around her who have yet to be embraced or heard by the mainstream, especially women, queer people and people of color. Not only does she have the vision to create music we love to listen to, she has the foresight to realize that this industry is better when it expands to be more inclusive. Congratulations to this year’s Billboard Women in Music Visionary award winner Maren Morris.
