Fresh from her triumphant, emotional homecoming at American Airlines Center last week as an opening act for Keith Urban, Arlington native Maren Morris returned to the road this week, stopping by Ellen DeGeneres’ show for a sleek performance of her new single, ‘80s Mercedes. (Morris also taped an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, but that isn’t scheduled to air until December.)

As she winds down her time on tour with Urban — he wraps up his “Ripcord World Tour” Nov. 19 in Brooklyn — Morris is already looking ahead to next year. That’s when she’ll hit the road for her inaugural headlining tour, which kicks off Feb. 3 in Boston, in support of her major label debut, Hero.

That six-week tour will bring her back to North Texas March 23 for a performance at Dallas’ House of Blues’ Cambridge Room. Tickets for that show go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday.
