Marren Morris and Ryan Hurd shock fans with the couple’s new engagement. Morris admits that the proposal was a surprise.
The “80s Mercedes” hit maker Morris reveals that when Hurd asked her to marry him, she wasn’t all glammed up for the big moment — she didn’t know it was coming.
“I really had no idea,” she admits, sharing that she was wearing sweatpants and glasses at the time. “I really did not look cute at all, that’s how I knew he was serious,” she adds, laughing.
Morris revealed that Hurd had popped the question in a simple Instagram post on July 9, with a photo of her sitting on his lap with a Corona in one hand and a gorgeous rock on the other, along with a series of other sweet photos of the two of them cuddling after the big moment.
Though Morris already has CMA and Grammy awards under her belt, Hurd is an up and coming singer-songwriter himself. The Kalamazo, MI native has written songs for several mainstream artists, penning Lady Antebellum‘s latest hit, “You Look Good,” as well as “Lonely Tonight” by Blake Shelton and Ashley Monroe, in addition to his own tracks like “Love in a Bar,” which was inspired by his fiancée.
Morris is currently opening for Sam Hunt on his 2017 15 in a 30 Tour.
