Maren Morris leads this year’s list of Country Music Association Awards nominees with six nominations. This is Morris’ second time leading the CMA nominee list in four years, and the strongest showing by a female nominee since Miranda Lambert garnered nine nominations in 2014. Morris is in the running for Album Of The Year, Female Vocalist Of The Year, Single Of The Year, Song Of The Year, Music Video Of The Year, and Musical Event Of The Year.
The 29 year-old singer-songwriter from Arlington, Texas recently debuted an Alex Ferrari-directed music video for “The Bones,” which features footage of Maren vacationing with her husband, singer-songwriter Ryan Hurd. Watch/share HERE. The single was most-added at Country radio this week.
“The Bones” is taken from Morris’ sophomore album GIRL, which shattered the record for the largest-ever debut streaming week for a country album by a woman with 23.96 million streams in its first week. The album debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and continues to receive rave reviews.
The record’s title track, “GIRL,” recently hit No. 1 on country radio, making it the first solo song by a woman to top the Billboard Country Airplay Chart since February 2018 and Morris’ third overall time at No. 1. Upon its release earlier this year, “GIRL” had the highest debut on Billboard’s Country Streaming Songs chart by a female artist and the highest weekly streams by a female country artist ever.
Morris kicks off the next leg of her GIRL: The World Tour later this month with performances at Radio City Music Hall in New York City and the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. She will also support Miranda Lambert on her Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars tour this fall. Visit marenmorris.com for full tour details.
