Written by Chief Editor.

Nominees for the  61st Grammy Awards were announced on Friday.

Maren Morris is among those in the running. She has received a Best Country Solo Performance nomination for her cover of Elton and Bernie Taupin's Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters from the Restoration tribute album.

During the Grammys broadcast last year, viewers heard The Middle, her collaboration with Zedd and Grey, for the first time during a commercial break. Now, a year later, what became one of the biggest songs of the year is up for three awards, including song and record of the year. 

In addition to those nods, the rising star's duet with Vince Gill, Dear Hate, is nominated for Best Country Duo/Group Performance and Best Country Song.
