JP Saxe and Maren Morris have joined forces for a GRAMMYs love-fest, despite the fact that the awards show has been postponed this year.

The 2021 GRAMMY-nominated artists just released their new collaboration, “Line By Line,” as well as a music video. “‘Line by Line’ acts as a promise that I’ll never be done writing about my muse in this life because he can’t be summed up in one song," says Morris.

“I have always loved being contemplative of the artist vs. muse relationship in songs,” Maren explains in a press release accompanying the single. "Writing that day with JP was the most fluid, inspiring session. He’s a lyrical faucet. He threw out the line ‘immortalizing my sincerity’ and it blew my mind. I think, all in all, we wrote the whole song in an hour and immediately recorded it.”

“My first thought about this song is that it’s surreal I get to be sharing it with one of my favorite artists ever,” Saxe shares. “Regarding what it’s about… as songwriters, we spend a lot of our lives trying to bottle up a feeling into a song, and often, the biggest feelings, the best ones... the complicated, detailed, messy, incredible ones... just aren’t going to fit. ‘Line by Line’ is our recognition of that... of how one song just isn’t enough to capture it all, but how we’re just going to keep writing, futilely and lovingly, anyway.”
