Ryan Hurd has written songs that have been recorded by Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Jake Owen, Maren Morris, Tim McGraw, FGL, among many others. In 2015, he celebrated his first No. 1 single as a songwriter with the GRAMMY & CMA-nominated duet “Lonely Tonight,” recorded by Blake Shelton and Ashley Monroe.
Now, the Kalamazoo, MI native is lending his own voice to the songs on his forthcoming debut album on Sony Music Nashville, which is garnering praise for its unique style and youthful, adventurous take on life. “We Do Us,” the first song released, received over 2 million streams in just three weeks.
Hurd says that “Love In a Bar” is an autobiographical song about his relationship with Maren Morris.
