The EP was recorded at the inaugural show of her GIRL: The World Tour on March 9, 2019, which was livestreamed globally by Amazon Music. The footage features performances of “GIRL,” “A Song for Everything,” “Common” and “The Bones.”
“Feeling so nostalgic for shows lately so here’s a few tracks from opening night of GIRL: The World Tour,” Maren says.
In March, Maren received RIAA Gold certification for her critically lauded album GIRL, which shattered the record for the largest ever debut streaming week for a country album by a woman, with 23.96 million streams in its first week. In addition, Maren played her biggest show to date for more than 60,000 fans at the Houston Rodeo—watch her exclusive interview with Anthony Mason for CBS This Morning here—and she leads the 2020 ACM Awards nominations this year with five nods including Female Artist of the Year and Album of the Year for GIRL. At the time of its release, GIRL broke global records for most first day streams and on-demand voice requests with Alexa than any other country album debut on Amazon Music. Her latest single, “To Hell & Back,” was the second most-added at country radio upon impact, with 41 first week stations.
Her Platinum-certified “The Bones” is spending its eighth week at #1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. When the song first earned #1 on the chart in February—which followed the chart-topping stint of “Girl” last summer—it marked the first time since 2016 that a solo country female artist had two #1’s from the same album. “The Bones” also achieved the longest post-peak run on the Country Aircheck/Mediabase radio chart in April, nine weeks following its second week at #1 in February, and was the first solo female back-to-back #1 since 2012. Additionally, “The Bones” reached the top 20 at Top 40 radio and #1 on the Billboard Adult Pop Songs and Mediabase Hot A.C. in April.
