Meet ''My Church'' Singer Maren Morris: From American Idol

Maren Morris is taking the country world by storm.

Nominated for five 2016 Country Music Association Awards heading into Wednesday's ceremony, the 26-year-old singer has already proved—win or lose—that if you have the dedication, the perseverance and the heart (along with the talent, of course), dreams can come true.

After all, how many artists can say that they were nominated for Single, Song, Female Vocalist and Album of the Year, as well as New Artist of the Year, in their first year on the country charts?

American Idol's Taylor Hicks

Taylor Hicks says he's lucky to be alive.
