GIRL The World Tour With Kassi Ashton & Hailey Whitters

Maren MorrisMaren Morris ‘ new single “The Bones” is a reflection on sturdy relationships: No matter what else is going on around it, the people in that partnership can rely on each other, and know that nothing can shake them. Released in 2016, Maren Morris’ debut full-length album, Hero, earned a spot at No. 5 on the Billboard 200. Two tracks from the album, “My Church” and “80s Mercedes,” reached No. 5 and No. 11, respectively, on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.

Yet Morris is a strong presence on country radio at a moment when songs by female artists are spun nowhere near as often as those by men. Over the summer, Girl” — a fine example of her ability to make the anthemic feel personal, and a savvy bit of cultural temperature-taking — made it to No. 1 on Billboard’s country airplay chart, ending a shutout for women at the top that lasted nearly a year and a half.

After all, Girl is the follow-up to her critically-acclaimed debut album, Hero , which “was about identifying my independence as a woman in country music that was fed up with the stereotypes women have so often been blocked into.” Whether it was scenarios like the man-chaser at the party or the “girl in cut-off jeans,” the Texas native says she was frustrated by “a lack of representation of what women my age were actually going through,” and Hero was her way of pushing back.

After all, the ability to lean on others is actually a sign of strength. That said, it’s also something not necessarily exclusive to spousal love — a fact that Morris is also acutely aware of. Look no further than her recent video for the record’s lead single, also titled “Girl.” Directed by Dave Meyers, the video not only feels like a love letter to the diverse experiences of being a woman, but a call toward female solidarity, especially in an age where so much is attempting to divide us. Because while she loves that there are glimpses of “the lightness of what we do” in the video, Morris also says she was also eager to tackle “a lot of the hard topics” that affect women of all stripes — which sometimes includes the “brutally honest, ugly” things not usually seen in big-budget music videos.

Produced by YouTube Music, this installment of Artist Spotlight Stories gives an exclusive glimpse into the journey that shaped Maren Morris into the artist she is today.
