Maren Morris’ “The Bones” reaches No. 1 on country radio this week, making it the first solo female Billboard country No. 1 since her single “GIRL” topped the chart last summer. This is also the first solo female back-to-back No. 1 since 2016 and Morris’ fourth No. 1 Billboard Country Airplay single to date.
2019 was a monumental year for the singer songwriter who took home Album of the Year at the 53rd Annual Country Music Association Awards, where she was the most nominated artist. Her record shattering album GIRL continues to receive widespread critical praise—Variety hailed it as “the best as well as most important mainstream country-star album of the year.” GIRL was also featured amongst the Best of 2019 by Rolling Stone, Billboard, Esquire, GQ, People, Vice, Paste, Stereogum and Uproxx. Much more to come from Morris in 2020.
