Country music couple Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd are getting divorced. The couple have a three-year-old son, Hayes. Continue reading to learn more about the couple and the details of the divorce we know about thus far.
Who Are Morris & Hurd?
Maren Morris is an American singer-songwriter who has carved out a significant place for herself in the country music scene. Rooted deeply in the country genre, her music also beautifully blends elements of pop and R&B, demonstrating her versatility as an artist.
Her breakthrough came with her 2016 debut album, "Hero," which featured the hit single "My Church." This album launched her into the limelight, but it was her 2018 song, “The Middle,” that gained her more mainstream popularity.
Morris is also well known and respected because of her vocalness and openness about country music’s racist history, as well as her opinions on femininity, sexuality, and politics. While she joined the country music supergroup The Highwomen in 2019, she recently announced that she will be taking a step back from the country music scene because of her inability to “participate in the really toxic arms of this institution anymore.”
Ryan Hurd is also a country music singer and songwriter. Known for his distinctive blend of country and pop, Hurd's music is lauded for its engaging storytelling and relatable themes. His career took off in 2016, and he has been creating waves ever since with his chart-topping hits and collaborations with other notable artists.
His songwriting prowess is well-recognized in the industry, with big names such as Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw, and Rascal Flatts recording songs penned by him. In addition to his music, Hurd's personal life has also garnered attention, particularly his relationship with fellow country star Maren Morris. The two artists often collaborate, their most recent hit being "Chasing After You.”
