Ryan Hurd and Maren Morris debut their first official duet as a married couple: “Chasing After You” – out now.
Renowned Nashville singer songwriter Ryan Hurd has achieved more than 382 million career streams worldwide and caught the attention of entertainment tastemakers including Esquire, GQ, Maxim, American Songwriter, Billboard and many more. With co-writing credits on some of country music’s biggest hits by Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan, the Kalamazoo native continues his hit-producing path with the beautifully haunting “Chasing After You,” a duet with his wife, music star Maren Morris – their very first official single together.
“Chasing After You,” blends atmospheric pop and rock drumming and details the on-again, off-again relationship between two people who relish a little drama in their pursuit for love. The track brings back memories of when they first met, started dating and fell in love. They met as songwriters back in 2013 writing the song “Last Turn Home “ together for another artist. But the romantic side came much later, as they tried to avoid the cliche story of two songwriters who fall in love with each other. However, it was not long before they noticed their chemistry and connection!
Maren Morris needs little introduction! Her triple Platinum single “The Bones” from her 2019 album GIRL is nominated for Best Country Song at the upcoming 63rd Annual Grammy Awards. The song dominated 2020, topping the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for 19 consecutive weeks—the longest #1 by a solo female musician ever and the first solo female multi-week #1 since 2012. Maren also won Female Vocalist of the Year, Single of the Year and Song of the Year at the 2020 CMA Awards, plus Female Artist of the Year and Music Event of the Year at the 2020 ACM Awards. GIRL shattered the record for the largest ever debut streaming week for a country album by a woman and was named Album of the Year at the 2019 CMA Awards, where Maren was the most nominated artist. The Grammy-winning artist kicked off 2021 with a performance of her protest song in support of Black Lives Matter “Better Than We Found It” on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” as well as a collaboration with Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist JP Saxe “Line By Line.”
