Maren Morris’ “The Bones” is No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for the 11th week, which is the longest run by a solo female artist in the history of the chart. Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Getting Back Together” ruled the chart for 10 weeks beginning in October 2012. The longest run on the chart is Bebe Rexha’s “Meant to Be,” featuring Florida Georgia Line, which spent 50 weeks at No. 1 in 2017-2018.
Maren co-penned the tune, which is featured on her 2019 album, Girl, with Laura Veltz and Jimmy Robbins. “The Bones” also spent back-to-back weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart in February 2020.
“The Bones” follows Maren’s previous No. 1 hits, “I Could Use a Love Song” (January 2018) and “Girl” (July 2019), as well as Thomas Rhett’s “Craving You” (July 2017), which featured Maren.
