Maren Morris may have released a killer debut album and won a CMA in 2016, but she closed out the year by receiving a very special honor from her hometown: December 27 was declared Maren Morris Day in Arlington, Texas.

On December 27, Arlington Mayor Jeff Williams presented Morris with a plaque and proclamation in recognition of Maren Morris Day at her mother’s salon, located in downtown Arlington. The office of Texas State Representative Tony Tinderholt also presented Morris with a resolution and the flag that flew over the Texas state capitol building when she was named New Artist of the Year at the 2016 CMA Awards.
