Ryan Hurd & Maren Morris Still Chase After Each Other In Song, and In Life

Ryan Hurd & Maren Morris Still Chase After Each Other In Song, and In Life

Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd are both songwriters who have been the creative force behind some major country music hits over the past several years.

So, it’s a bit ironic that their first true duet together – neither one had a hand in writing.

“Chasing After You,” written by Brinley Addington and Jerry Flowers, connected with the country music making married couple in a very real way…Maren says, “We really…I guess heard ourselves in the lyrics and it just still rang true today. I feel like whether you’ve been with someone for two seconds or twenty years, you’re always longing for them. I feel like touring and being away from each other gives an element of that, like you’re still chasing me down, I’m chasing you down. So this song will always kind of be fitting.”

Ryan followed with “I’ll still chase after you.”

Maren approved, “Good. Always.”

Ryan performed on the ACM Awards for the first time, last month, and he thought it was very fitting that Maren was there for it…and just recently they made their Late Night With Seth Meyers debut singing their duet “Chasing After You”…check out that appearance here…

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
