Maren Morris’ “The Bones” hits #1 on Hot Country Songs

FIRST SOLO WOMAN TO TOP CHART

SINCE 2016

WATCH MAREN CHAT WITH ANTHONY MASON FOR CBS THIS MORNING AT HER HOUSTON RODEO SHOW

Grammy-winning artist Maren Morris hits #1 on Hot Country Songs this week with “The Bones,” marking the first time since 2016 that a solo woman has topped the hybrid chart. “The Bones” ousted “10,000 Hours” by Dan + Shay and Justin Bieber, which held the #1 spot for 21 weeks. In addition, CBS This Morning attended Maren’s Houston Rodeo performance—her biggest show to date with more than 60,000 tickets sold. Watch her exclusive interview with Anthony Mason that aired recently here.

Last week, Maren received RIAA Gold certification for her critically lauded 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 also debuted #4 on Billboard 200 and #1 on Billboard Top Country Albums. Additionally, “The Bones” recently topped the Billboard Country Airplay chart for two consecutive weeks, making it the first solo female back-to-back #1 since 2012, her fourth #1 single to date and the first solo female Billboard Country #1 since her single “GIRL” topped the chart last summer.

Maren leads the 2020 ACM Awards nominations this year with five nods including Female Artist of the Year and Album of the Year for GIRL.

Later this year Maren will embark on “RSVP: The Tour” throughout North America, including festival dates at Governors Ball Music Festival and Jazz Aspen Snowmass Labor Day Experience and headline stops in Los Angeles, Boston, Colorado’s storied Red Rocks Amphitheatre and many more. Supporting acts James Arthur, Ryan Hurd and Caitlyn Smith are confirmed for select dates. The tour kicks off in June.

Tickets for “RSVP: The Tour” are currently on sale to the public. For more information please visit https://www.marenmorris.com/.

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.
