Maren Morris’ “The Bones” ascended to the top of both the Billboard Country Airplay chart and Mediabase chart this week. Maren co-penned the tune, which is featured on her 2019 album, Girl, with Laura Veltz and Jimmy Robbins.
“The bones are good,” said Maren via Twitter. “Thank you so much for my third number 1 song. And I will be having the party for it after I have this baby so I can drink all the margaritas.”
“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.
Directed by Alex Ferrari, the video for “The Bones” features footage of Maren vacationing on the beach with husband Ryan Hurd. The lovebirds share plenty of hugs and kisses in the clip as Maren croons the chorus: “When the bones are good, the rest don’t matter / Yeah, the paint could peel, the glass could shatter / Let it break ’cause you and I remain the same / When there ain’t a crack in the foundation / Baby, I know any storm we’re facing / Will blow right over while we stay put / The house don’t fall when the bones are good.”
