Maren Morris Ends Drought For Female Country Singers

Posted: February 18, 2020 at 9:28 am

Maren Morris continues her run on top of the Country Airplay chart with her single, “The Bones.” With that two week run on top, she becomes the first solo country female artist in 8 years to do that! Carrie Underwood was the last female to have a multi-week No.1 in 2012 with the song “Blown Away.”

Morris shared her thoughts on the feat in a recent tweet.

“If I can be honest, I really thought the only way this could ever happen is if I was the feature artist on a guy’s song. Sitting here seeing my name at the top of a chart at all is rare, but to break this 8 year streak just feels so unbelievable. Thank you,” Morris said via Twitter.
