Country music powerhouse Maren Morris has been paving a road for females in the genre since her first single “My Church”. Not long after “GIRL” took the top spot on the charts, the singer-songwriter is back with another single to add to her resume of chart-topping hits.
“The Bones,” the second single off of Morris’ sophomore album GIRL, metaphorically compares the structure of a hearty building to the makings of a stable, successful relationship. Within stability, the importance of a robust foundation is substantial. Morris sings: “When the bones are good, the rest don’t matter // Yeah, the paint could peel, the glass could shatter // Let it rain ‘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.”
Written by Morris, Jimmy Robbins and Laura Veltz, “The Bones’” video documents Morris and her country music singer-songwriter husband Ryan Hurd vacationing including intimate mockumentary-style footage in Hawaii from climbing waterfalls to reclining in the sun to visiting the infamous Road to Hana in Maui. The video instills a retro, vintage ambiance which makes you want to third wheel even more.
Morris wrote on Instagram, “The Road to Hana is beautiful but a hell of a trek… kind of like the most meaningful and lasting human relationships we get to have. This is our journey on film for “The Bones” directed by our friend Maui aficionado @AlexMFerrari,” with a shortened montage teasing the video.
