Maren Morris Ready For Wedding

We’re apparently in the home stretch!  Maren Morris told Country Countdown USA’s Lon Helton that she took a well-deserved break for Christmas. “It was nice, after a very crazy year, to get home back to Texas. All my family is there, I brought my fiancé Ryan Hurd down there. Our engagement party was in Nashville a couple weeks back, and now all the families have met.”  Then she returned to Nashville to play a New Year’s Eve show with Keith Urban. (photo below)

The next big event on Maren’s personal calendar is her wedding: “Yes, we’re getting married in March, and then we’ll have a couple weeks to chill, be newlyweds.  We planned that a long time ago. That was the first thing we got out of the way, was the honeymoon.”

Speaking of her fiancé, Lon asked where and how they met: “We met like 5 years ago here in Nashville. We were paired together in a writing room.  I always had a crush on him, just as a songwriter crush. You just love the person’s songs so much, you have a crush on their songs. But we were both in relationships at the time. So it wasn’t in the cards at the time. But shortly before I wrote My Church, my relationship fell apart, and a year later, he got out of his relationship.  It was two years ago that we got together, and now we’re getting married. I can’t imagine spending my life with anyone else.”

How are the two of you balancing your music careers and personal lives? “We’ve found a rhythm, and it’s taken a long time to get one, because as you say, it’s pretty crazy in the beginning when you start a music career.  We’re fortunate to understand each other’s work lives and careers.  There are hard times, when you don’t see someone every day, it can take it’s toll.  We’ve established rules, like the two week rule.  We can’t go longer than 14 days without seeing each other. I’ve heard Tim & Faith have a one week rule, but they also have a plane!  I don’t have that yet!”

Maren’s fiancé Ryan Hurd will release his debut album this year, and Maren says they root for each other: “He’s always understood me creatively.  When I didn’t believe in myself or my sound, he was like, ‘You’ve got to be kidding! You’ve got it.’  Our friend group here is also amazing. We’ve built this life together here in Nashville.  Brothers Osborne, Kacey Musgraves, Thomas Rhett.  It’s good to have that support system of artists and musicians, people who are our age and going through the same stuff.  We’re the new class, and it’s nice to have each other.”
