Ryan Hurd, Maren Morris Share Their Love in ‘Love in a Bar’ Video [WATCH]
Maren Morris has millions of fans, but her biggest one is undoubtedly her fiance, Ryan Hurd. The singer-songwriter, who proposed to Morris earlier this year, shines a light on their love in the music video for his single "Love in a Bar."
Hurd's "Love in a Bar" video captures some of his and Morris' favorite -- and most personal -- moments. The black-and-white clip was filmed at Hurd's family's lake house in Michigan; readers can press play above to watch.
"It’s really relaxed," Hurd recently told The Boot and other reporters. "I’m really proud of the song and also getting to showcase a little bit of our relationship and letting people have a little sliver, a window, of what we do on a normal day on vacation or in a special place.
"And that’s actually where I proposed to Maren, too, was at that same house," Hurd adds, "so we didn’t reenact anything, but we got to shoot some very familiar things. It was really a special project."
Hurd and Morris are planning their wedding for 2018 -- he says it'll happen in the spring -- but first, they'll have to get through the 2017 CMA Awards. Morris is nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year, among other honors, and, of course, Hurd is pulling for his future bride to take home the trophy.
"I’m really proud of her and her [Hero] album. I’m really proud of her for being nominated again for Female Vocalist of the Year. To me, I think she should win, but I think she should win everything, so that’s probably not a good opinion," Hurd admits. "It’s going to be a really special night, and I’m really excited to get to see her shine again. I think she’s such a great artist, but also such an awesome person.
"I’m proud of her as an ambassador for her genre," Hurd continues. "This is my career -- I work in country music in Nashville, Tenn. -- and to have somebody like that be the face of country music outside of Nashville, in pop music and all of the other places, it’s just really awesome to see her get the recognition."
As for the wedding, Hurd is letting his bride do most of the planning, although he says it's one of their favorite topics to discuss together.
"I love talking about the wedding stuff and planning it," reveals Hurd. "The cool part is that Maren doesn’t have any bad ideas. She’s got really great taste, so there’s not a lot I have to be like, ‘I don’t really dig that.’
"There’s a lot of things that are really intimate and special," Hurd adds. "It’s fun to hear her talk about it ... And also, we’re really blessed to have a lot of family and friends that are going to be there ... and we’re really pumped about getting to have that moment."
Morris is nominated in the Female Vocalist of the Year category at the 2017 CMA Awards along with Kelsea Ballerini, Miranda Lambert, Reba McEntire and Carrie Underwood. She is also nominated for Musical Event of the Year and Music Video of the Year, both for "Craving You," her duet with Thomas Rhett.
The 2017 CMA Awards are scheduled to air on ABC on Nov. 8, at 8PM ET; the ceremony will take place live at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood will host the ceremony for the 10th year in a row.
