In her Instagram announcement, Morris described the release of these two songs as a pivotal moment in her ongoing musical journey. She emphasized that both these songs are not just standalone tracks but are a bidirectional link, a bridge leading to her next album.

“I’ve been working non-stop on my record this year, and I realized that both these songs deserved their own moment – each telling a story, one written in the day, and the other in the night – a bidirectional pair and a bridge to my upcoming album. I’ve welcomed changes over the past few years, celebrated, mourned, and these two songs articulate it better than any caption or interview. I hope you enjoy them. ‘Wherever I’m going, I hope I’m not alone.'”

Maren Morris The Bridge: The Story Behind “Get the Hell Out of Here”

Based on the title of the song, it appears that “Get the Hell Out of Here” might be a response to the controversial song “Try Date in a Small Town” by Jason Aldean, which was posted on September 7. Morris captioned her post with, “I’ve done a lot of digging with a shovel and a cup below,” which she shared alongside a silent clip of a bucolic town accompanied by a billboard reading, “Welcome to our perfect small town: From sunrise to sundown.” (Her representative did not respond to Billboard’s request for comment at the time.)

Jason Aldean’s “Try Date in a Small Town” birthed both support and criticism due to the song’s call to burn the American flag, disrespect the police, and deter robbery in small towns. (Sample lyrics: “Pull a cop out, spit in his face / Stomp the flag and make it light / Yeah, you think you’re tough? / Alright, try to make a small town.”) “Try Date in a Small Town” was penned by Kelsea Ballerini, Neil Thrasher, Tully Kennedy, and Kurt Allison. The video for the song was shot by CMT, a move that amplified both support and backlash.

Following CMT’s decision, Aldean posted a message to his Instagram Stories addressing the mixed reactions to the song and its video. The controversy ended up boosting the song’s views and attention. “Try Date in a Small Town” has now been viewed over 35 million times, and the song topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart at the end of July. It is currently in the top 10 on the Country Airplay chart.
