Maren Morris put on a powerful display at the CMA Awards!

On Wednesday night (November 11), the singer-songwriter hit the stage at the 2020 Country Music Association Awards to perform “The Bones.” The 30-year-old charmed audiences with a soulful presentation of her smash hit song, and wore in a sparkling, sequined deep-cut dress for the occasion as she belted her heart out during tonight's ceremony.

Morris has been on a winning streak this evening, having claimed three categories of the four in which she's nominated: Female Vocalist of the Year and Single of the Year and Song of the Year (both for "The Bones"). She was also nominated for Musical Event of the Year.

This isn't the country songbird's first time at the rodeo, either. She's won big at past Country Music Association Awards, including New Artist of the Year in 2016 and Album of the Year (Girl) in 2019.

Speaking about the record in a 2019 interview with Cody Alan, Morris revealed how her relationship with husband Ryan Hurd inspired the track. “I wrote this song before we got married and it really was this dedication to him and what he’s provided for me even in the short time we have been dating," she revealed at the time.

In describing the track's resilient message, Morris imagined “an image of a house being completely destroyed by a storm, but then the frame is still there, and it weathered the storm. You know, I loved that. Or, lines in the song like, 'The wolves came and went, and we are still standing.' It’s a really meaningful song.”
