Beauty In Ryan Hurd and Maren Morris’ “Chasing After You”

Bright, Shiny, and Golden is This New Country Hit

Love is a beautiful thing, especially Ryan Hurd and Maren Morris’ love. Their nuptials only enhance the beauty of their first song released as a couple. 


Their debut is a stellar duet that is all things singer-songwriter with a perfect amount of country twang. The song is “Chasing After You” and its accompanying music video puts the pair’s love on full display.


Appropriately, the music video for “Chasing After You” centers around the couple. Going around and around in a circle, seemingly on a conveyor belt, are Ryan Hurd and Maren Morris. Eventually, their worlds stop and they align. It’s finally their time after all that chasing and all that singing. 


The video is golden in hue and sensual in tone. Ryan Hurd and Maren Morris are songwriters and musicians whose love is now being broadcast on a new level.  “We have written a lot of songs together, and for each other, but this was the first time we really stepped out in this way.” Hurd explained about their sudden debut as a duet on CBS This Morning, February 12.


Ryan Hurd and Maren Morris: Love of Music and Each Other

Their own love story began in 2013 as songwriters working hard in Nashville, Tennessee. The first song they worked on together, “Last Turn Home,” was recorded by Tim McGraw. 


After that initial writing session, the country pairing kept working together. Even if they had never topped Tim McGraw singing their song, they found each other. Luckily, eight years later, Hurd and Morris have stellar careers of their own. Now, they have one together, as well.


“Chasing After You” is a country pop song that doesn’t document the actual history of Ryan Hurd and Maren Morris’ relationship. It’s similar to it, though, because it has to do with the timing of their love. Although their connection began in 2013, it wasn’t until a couple years later that their love was cemented on both sides. 


Whether Ryan Hurd was chasing after Maren Morris or vice versa, timing wasn’t on their side. “Chasing After You” talks about that special feeling and deep-rooted knowing that someone is right for you. It puts this lovely concept to music in a harmonious country way.
