The 57th Academy of Country Music Awards are just a day away and performers and guests, including Maren Morris, cannot contain their excitement any longer!

The 2022 ACMs performer recently gushed about her upcoming performance of ‘Circles Around This Town’.

“What I’m looking forward to most at performing at the ACM, it’s my first time performing my single Circles Around This Town live,” the singer shared. “And, definitely my first award show performance of it. So we’re going to do it really special. And yeah, it’s kind of we’re back in Vegas, so it’s gonna be fun. It’s been a long two years of just doing it like remotely, so I’m excited to do such a fun song in Vegas at ACMs.”

“I did grow up watching the ACMs,” Maren continues. And, being able to perform on it now, and you know, having been nominated and won I feel like it’s such an artists award show. It’s fun, we get to see each other. It’s been way too long since I’ve seen all my friends. It feels like a family reunion. So I’m excited that not only am I nominated, but I get to perform as well and it’s just going to be a party like it always is.”
