Maren Morris takes ‘The Bones’ to No 1

Morris appears on the 50th season of Sesame Street

Grammy-winning artist 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.

Additionally, Morris is appearing on the 50th season of Sesame Street in an episode titled “Let’s Draw.” The episode will air February 15th on HBO at 9 am EST.

Morris is confirmed to perform at the Houston Rodeo on March 7th, as well as BottleRock Napa Valley, Governors Ball Music Festival and Jazz Aspen Snowmass Labor Day Experience, with more tour dates to be announced.

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.

There’s more to come from Morris in 2020 as she preps to deliver her first born child later this year.
