Ryan Hurd, Maren Morris‘s husband, shares her love of country music – Find Out More
Maren Morris is a country music sensation with a slew of Grammys, five (soon to be six) studio albums, and a cute 2-year-old kid. Her third album, “Hero,” became a commercial hit as it pushed beyond the typical country music sound and merged country with R&B. Who is Maren’s spouse, in addition to her amazing accomplishments?
Read on to learn all we know about Maren‘s wonderful marriage to Ryan Hurd.
According to Us Weekly, Maren and Ryan met in a scenario that might have been straight out of a country song. Ryan, 35, is a songwriter who has penned hits for Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan, and Tim McGraw, among others. He and Maren were creating the song “Last Turn Home” in 2013 when flames flew.
In 2019, Maren told Us Weekly, “[Ryan’s] always been a creative collaborator in my life, and that’s how we met.” “Six years ago, we were partnered together to compose a song. We didn’t know each other at the time, and it just blossomed from there, so music has always been a big part of our love for each other, and now that we’re more than just songwriters, we’re artists as well.”
Ryan and Maren were acquaintances for two years before becoming romantically involved, as Ryan details in his song “Love in a Bar.” Ryan proposed in July 2017, and the couple married in August. Maren compares their relationship to Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban; like Nicole and Keith, Maren and Ryan usually tour separately, and their schedules don’t always coincide.
Maren and Ryan became first-time parents in 2020 when their son Hayes Andrew was born. Maren has been vocal about her experience as a first-time parent on social media, defending both her post-baby physique and, more recently, her 2019 Playboy picture.
Maren wrote in the caption of a photo on her Instagram feed that received negative feedback from critics, “Before I move on to the next album era, I released Playboy in 2019, which received a lot of backlash at the time, but I’m most proud of the fact that it depicted country female sexuality in its most realistic form. We’re nuanced, messy, and stretch-marked in the best manner possible. Don’t take us for granted. We present your story in the most uncompromising, beautiful way possible. It’s important to remember.”
Maren shared her son’s vision struggle on Twitter, saying she “feels bad” that he inherited her “poor eyesight.” “Hayes had to get glasses today, and he looks so lovely,” Maren writes, “but I also feel guilty that I passed on my terrible vision to him.” She also said on Instagram that the whole family was supporting Hayes’ new appearance.
“Hayes needed glasses today, so the whole family is wearing false frames (I have lasik) to encourage him to keep them on,” she wrote. “So far, it’s not working.” Hayes turned two on March 20, 2022, and he’s becoming cuter by the year! Maybe he’ll be creating country tunes with his folks one day.
