Country music’s biggest night honored some of the greatest stars of the genre from today and from years past. The CMA Awards show took place Wednesday night at Nashville’s Music City Center and history was made with tribute performances and awards surprises.
One of the night’s biggest awards, Female Vocalist of the Year, went to….Maren Morris!

Morris was up against some stiff competition in seven-time Female Vocalist winner Miranda Lambert, first-time nominee Ashley McBryde, last year’s Female Vocalist winner Kacey Musgraves and five-time category winner Carrie Underwood. Morris is only the second female artist other than Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert to win this award since 2009. In 2019, Kacey Musgraves took home the coveted trophy.
Maren’s win is the icing on top of an already huge night for the singer who also won Single of the Year and Song of the Year for “The Bones” earlier in the evening. During the show, Morris performed her award-winning single, “The Bones.” Join us in congratulating Maren Morris on her Female Vocalist of the Year win, and watch her perform “The Bones” on the Late Late Show below.
