Maren Morris takes ‘The Bones’ to No. 1 at Hot AC

The platinum single hit No. 1 on Hot Country Songs last month

Grammy-winning artist Maren Morris tops Hot A.C. radio this week, with platinum-certified “The Bones” going No. 1 on the Billboard Adult Pop Songs and Mediabase Hot A.C. charts, marking the longest ever climb to No. 1 on both charts at 45 weeks. In addition, “The Bones” remains in the Top 10 this week on the Country Aircheck chart nine weeks after reaching No. 1 for two consecutive weeks in February, which made it the first solo female back-to-back No. 1 since 2012.

In addition, her latest single “To Hell & Back” was the second most-added at country radio last week, with 41 first week stations.

2020 is off to an incredible start for Morris, who just welcomed her first child. “The Bones” is spending its fifth week at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. When the song first earned No. 1 on the chart in February — which followed the chart-topping stint of “Girl” last summer — it marked the first time since 2016 that a solo country female artist had two No. 1’s from the same album. “The Bones” was also No. 1 on SiriusXM The Highway’s Hot 30 in July. In March, Morris 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. In addition, Morris played her biggest show to date for more than 60,000 fans at the Houston Rodeo, and she 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 Morris will embark on RSVP: The Tour throughout North America, including festival dates at Jazz Aspen Snowmass Labor Day Experience and Railbird Festival and headline stops in Los Angeles, Atlanta, 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.
