Maren Morris’ “Girl” Reaches No. 1 on the Country Charts

Maren Morris’ “Girl” Reaches No. 1 on the Country Charts

Maren Morris’ “Girl” ascended to the top of both the Billboard Country Airplay chart and Mediabase chart this week.

Penned by Maren, Sarah Aarons and Greg Kurstin, who also produced the song, “Girl” is the lead single and title track from Maren’s 2019 album. The tune features the encouraging chorus: “Girl, don’t hang your head low / Don’t lose your halo / Everyone’s gonna be okay, baby, girl.

“The story behind my single, ‘Girl,’ started as something I was saying to another woman, like, ‘We don’t need to be competitive with each other,’” says Maren. “And then I kind of realized that I was talking to myself, like, ‘I don’t need to be so competitive with myself, I am enough.’ And it just became a really powerful concept after that point.”

“Girl” follows Maren’s previous No. 1 hits, “I Could Use a Love Song” (January 2018) and Thomas Rhett’s “Craving You” (July 2017), which featured Maren.

Maren is the first solo female to top the Billboard Country Airplay chart since Kelsea Ballerini in February 2018 with “Legends.”
