RCA Nashville artist & multi-No. 1 songwriter, Ryan Hurd, reveals for fans an intimate, front row seat at the journey from the past few years of life together with now wife, Maren Morris, in the official music video for “Diamonds or Twine” – watch below.
The video features never-before-seen footage of Hurd & Morris at his family’s lake house in Michigan where he proposed, backstage at Red Rocks Ampitheatre before Morris’ tour date with Sam Hunt, pre-show at Ascend Amphitheatre in Nashville, Tenn. for Hurd’s show with Thomas Rhett and outtakes of life on and off the road. Taking a short break from the studio where he has been putting the final touches on his debut album, Hurd joined Bobby Bones today to share the story behind “Diamonds or Twine” and discuss the songwriting process as he maps out new music for fans. Listen to the interview here.
The day before Hurd & Morris tied the knot in March, Hurd released “Diamonds or Twine” as a wedding gift for his bride-to-be, debuting the song with SiriusXM The Highway. Hurd first played the soulful love track, which he co-penned with Laura Veltz and Mark Trussell, for Morris the night he popped the question in Michigan last summer. However, unbeknownst to Morris, the “Love In A Bar” singer/songwriter secretly recorded the track with long-time producer, Aaron Essuis, as a gift to celebrate their wedding weekend.
Hurd, a celebrated songwriter with cuts by Blake Shelton, Lady Antebellum and Luke Bryan, adds “Diamonds Or Twine” to his breakout EP of 2017, a collection of four tracks released for fans as an introduction to his artist project. Hurd is currently in the studio working on his debut album expected later this year.
