Imagine driving a luxury car and jamming to Maren Morris’ “80s Mercedes”. The single was co-written and co-produced by Busbee during a session where they exchanged opinions about the title and some factors and context from that time. The singer admitted that she holds a fondness for traditional Mercedes cars, a love to which she declared deeply in her second grand slam song. 

Morris informs us that “80s Mercedes” arose from a simple talk she had with a friend that’s been seeing a guy who had a sublime 80s Mercedes, and the singer figured that would make an amazing title track. And she co-composed the song as a festive version of driving the wheels and feeling something special and another bond to music. 

The song’s theme is a bit more upbeat than her debut song, “My Church.” The melody clicks with listeners in a manner various country music equivalents’ songs can’t. The chorus provides fans the visual representation of what the single is about: steering and traveling in a ’80s Mercedes and feeling like a wealthy girl. 

“80s Mercedes” by Maren Morris earned the #38 spot on Rolling Stone’s 50 Best Songs of 2016, saying: “The Nashville breakout artist is composing trendier music about cars than other musicians nowadays.” The song rose at #12 on the Country Airplay chart, then a month after, the song got the 11th spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. It also entered Canada, reaching the number 17 on the Canada Country chart . The song was certified Platinum by both the Recording Industry Association of America and Music Canada. 

80s Mercedes, with her debut single, opens doors to many upcoming Maren Morris songs that will hook many country music enthusiasts.
