Country powerhouse Maren Morris certainly has a great reason to celebrate, as her current single “The Bones” hit No. 1 on country radio this week.

The occasion also marks the first No. 1 on the Billboard Country chart for a solo female country artist since Morris topped it over the summer with “GIRL.”

“The bones are good. 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 Texas native declared on Instagram.

The track also hit entered the top 10 on the Billboard Radio Songs chart. The last solo female to top Country Airplay and reach top 10 on Radio Songs was Taylor Swift with her smash hit “You Belong With Me” in 2009.

In addition to her chart success, Morris will appear on the 50th season of Sesame Street in the episode, “Let’s Draw,” which airs Saturday, Feb. 15, on HBO.

The songstress is also set to perform at the Houston Rodeo on March 7 as well as being confirmed for BottleRock Napa Valley, Governors Ball Music Festival and Jazz Aspen Snowmass Labor Day Experience, with more tour dates to come.
