Grammy Camp Alum Maren Morris to Return to Camp as a Guest Artist

Maren Morris is heading back to Grammy Camp. The versatile singer first attended the Grammy Museum’s program for promising U.S. high school students in 2005 (its first year), when she was 15. She’s returning this year as a guest artist – and, no doubt, a source of inspiration to the assembled students.


“Grammy Camp will always be one of those formative memories in my career,” she said in a statement. “I was 15 years old when I went back in 2005 and remember it cementing my dreams of being a songwriter. Being involved with the organization still to this day is such a unique pleasure I have.”

Morris has had many career highlights since her initial Grammy Camp experience. She won a Grammy in 2017 (best country solo performance for “My Church”) and landed a top five hit on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2018 with “The Middle,” a collab with Zedd and Grey.

New York City-born bass guitarist Blu DeTiger and New Jersey-born singer/songwriter Jeremy Zucker will also serve as guest artists this year. All three will discuss their career paths and endeavor to help students prepare for the music industry.

This year’s Grammy Camp will be held from Sunday, July 14 to Saturday July 20 at The Village Recording Studios in Los Angeles. A total of 83 high school students from 76 U.S. cities across 22 states have been selected as participants in the 20th annual Grammy Camp program.

“Over the last two decades, Grammy Camp has served as the heartbeat of the music world for high school students aspiring towards a career in music, offering an authentic immersion into the music industry and life itself,” Michael Sticka, president/CEO of the Grammy Museum, said in a statement.

Grammy Camp will focus on all aspects of commercial music and provide instruction by industry professionals in an immersive and creative environment. The program features seven music career tracks: audio engineering, electronic music production, music business, music and media, songwriting, vocal performance, and instrumental performance. All tracks culminate in virtual media projects, recordings and/or performances.

This Grammy In The Schools program is presented by the Hot Topic Foundation with support from the Chuck Lorre Family Foundation. Additional scholarship and program support is provided by the Aufmann Family, BeatHeadz, Ella Fitzgerald Charitable Foundation, Natalie Cole Foundation, Pacific Bridge Arts Foundation, and the Recording Academy.
