Ryan Hurd and his Grammy-winning wife, Maren Morris have the #1 spot on this week’s U.S. Country Radio Mediabase chart with “Chasing After You.” The song is from his album Pelago, which he says was inspired by growing up on the shores of Lake Michigan. Ryan and Maren tells us about the song and finally recording a song together: RH: It’s amazing to finally be able to do a song with Maren, we’ve worked together, and we’ve written together, and we met each other writing songs, and we’ve sung on each other’s records, but this is the first time we’ve ever gotten to do a song this forward facing, which is fun. It’s actually a song we didn’t write, which should tell you how much we actually love it. MM: We’ve loved this for like five or six years, it’s sort of the demo that wouldn’t quit for us. Our friends wrote it, but we really I guess heard ourselves in the lyrics and it just still rang true today. I feel like whether you’ve been with someone for two seconds or twenty years, you’re always longing for them. I feel like touring and being away from each other gives an element of that, like you’re still chasing me down, I’m chasing you down. So this song will always kind of be fitting. RH: I’ll still chase after you. MM: Good, always. :57 (OC: good always)
