The Rave announced today that country music star Maren Morris will return to Milwaukee, bringing her "The Hero Tour" to the Eagles Ballroom on Friday, Oct. 6., at 8 p.m.

Anybody who went into Maren Morris' December 17 show at The Rave with Jon Pardi knew they were seeing a new country star burning at almost full brightness. After all, her major label debut album "Hero" from June had hit No. 1 on the U.S. country charts, and just a week before her stop in Milwaukee, she was the featured musical guest on the John Cena episode of "SNL."

Half a year later, Morris' star has only gotten brighter, nabbing a Grammy win (Best Female Solo Performance for her song "My Church") and live performance alongside Alicia Keys, as well as an American Country Music Award for New Female Vocalist of the Year in just that time. 

And lucky for Milwaukee, she's coming back to town this fall. 

Tickets for the show go on sale starting Friday, May 5, at 10 a.m. at The Rave's website. And for a chance to win free tickets – the best kind of tickets – to the show, enter the contest on FM 106.1's website
