Maren Morris Becomes First Female To Top Billboard Airplay Chart Since Feb 2018

Published

Superstar Maren Morris’ smash single “GIRL” is #1 on country radio this week, the first solo song by a woman to top the Billboard Country Airplay Chart since February 2018 and Morris’ third time at #1 overall. Upon its release earlier this year, “GIRL” had the highest debut on Billboard’s Country Streaming Songs chart by a female artist and the highest weekly streams by a female country artist ever.

The song is the title track from the multi-Platinum artist’s second album, which shattered the record for the largest-ever debut streaming week for a country album by a woman with 23.96 million streams in its first week. The album debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200, #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and continues to receive rave reviews. GIRL is out now via Columbia Nashville.

Morris is currently in the midst of a sold-out world tour, including appearances this past weekend at Newport Folk Festival with The Highwomen—her all-star collaboration with Brandi Carlile, Natalie Hemby and Amanda Shires—and with Dolly Parton and The Highwomen as part of a history-making all women Saturday night headline set, during which Parton congratulated Morris on the #1 from stage. GIRL: The World Tour continues this summer, and Morris will support Miranda Lambert on her Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars tour this fall. Visit marenmorris.com for full tour details.
