Maren Morris The Bones is #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart followed by American Country Countdown.
The Bones is Maren’s fourth Billboard Country Airplay #1 song.
“The Bones is the first song that I’ve ever put out as a single that addresses love in the most realistic terms.”
The Bones is #1 in Canada on the Canada Country National Airplay Billboard chart.
“A lot of love songs to me can feel so earnest, and I just can’t relate to them. With The Bones it felt like we were writing something about a real relationship that goes through these trials, and isn’t perfect every day. It isn’t preaching to anyone. It’s just saying, You and me, we’re going to be in the trenches together, no matter what.”
The Bones is from Maren’s LP Girl. She co-wrote The Bones with Jimmy Robbins and Laura Veltz.
“We released The Bones a year ago as a promotional track before the album, not thinking it would be the second single. The fans have spoken on this one. It’s a real, gritty love song that I wrote years ago with Jimmy Robbins and Laura Veltz sharing co-write credits. I couldn’t be more proud that it’s become one of the biggest songs of my career to date.”
The video for The Bones was directed by Alex Ferrari and shows footage of Maren while on vacation in Maui, Hawaii with her husband, Ryan Hurd, all shot on vintage Super 8 film.
Maren Morris and husband Ryan Hurd are set to welcome their first child within weeks. Maren has never revealed her specific due date but did say their son was arriving only a few weeks after her final performance at the Houston Rodeo on March 7th.
Maren and Ryan have decided to wait until after they meet their son to decide what to call him.
“I think it’ll be cool to have this baby grow up on the road and that be a normal thing. I’ve heard they never sleep better because a bus is natural rocking and white noise.”
