– Singers Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd are engaged.
They made the announcement via social media on Sunday. Pictures on Twitter and Instagram showed Morris wearing an engagement ring with the word "Yes!" in the postings. Hurt posted a picture on his Twitter account of the two in a rowboat with the words "7/3/17."
Morris has enjoyed much success as a result of her major label album, "Hero," which spawned the hits "My Church" and "80s Mercedes."
Hurd, a Michigan native, has had success as a songwriter and is a recording artist in his own right. He is currently on RCA and has released several EPs.
The two met in 2013 when put together to write songs. They penned "Last Turn Home," which Tim McGraw cut the very next day.
Hurd also wrote a song about his relationship with Morris, "Love in a Bar."
Hurd is currently touring with Florida Georgia Line, while Morris is on Sam Hunt's tour. Hurd and Morris will tour together this fall.
