Country music fans everywhere have loved watching Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd as their love story unfolds. These two talented artists have taken the music world by storm, but it looks like they have more than just professional success to celebrate– they’re engaged!
Maren Morris announced the news via social media on Sunday afternoon, posting several photos to show off her sparkly new engagement ring. Her caption simply read, “Yes,” and both Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd received thousands of congratulatory comments on social media.
The two lovebirds have worked together for several years now. Most recently, Hurd accompanied Morris on her headlining Hero Tour, along with Brothers Osborne. Both are talented singers and songwriters on their own, but together? They’re unstoppable!
Morris and Hurd met in Nashville, Tennessee during a songwriting session. The two became good friends almost immediately, and began dating shortly thereafter. While it would be easy to compete with each other in the cutthroat music industry, they agreed early on in their relationship to support each other, no matter what.
“Years ago we made a pact,” Morris said in a recent Instagram post, “A handshake that we’d try this ‘artist thing’ out because our hearts were telling us to do so, but we also agreed we’d never let ego or jealousy precede the love we have for one another.” It seems that pact is going to last a lifetime, because these two are headed for marriage!
We can’t wait to watch this amazing country love story as it continues for years to come. Congratulations, Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd!
