Ryan Hurd surpasses one billion on-demand streams

Debut album available now

Rising country powerhouse Ryan Hurd celebrates surpassing over one billion career on-demand streams. This feat comes on the heels on Hurd’s second Grammy nomination for Best Country Song for his songwriting work on Maren Morris’ “Circles Around This Town.”

Hurd spent the better part of 2022 touring in support of his debut album Pelago, which was released last year to critical acclaim. The 30-city headline tour reached fans all across the US including Nashville, TN, Chicago, IL, San Martin, CA, Boise, ID, Seattle, WA and more. Hurd has also played major festivals including Stagecoach, Summerfest and iHeart Music Festival and toured with the like of Sam Hunt, Thomas Rhett, Darius Rucker and Lady A. Hurd made a special appearance Friday night to perform “I Can’t Love You Anymore” at Morris’ Bridgestone Arena Show.

Pelago reached the top five of Spotify’s most streamed country albums and features “Chasing After You,” the No. 1, Platinum-certified duet with Maren Morris, which earned a nomination for Best Country Duo/Group Performance at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards, as well as two nominations at The 55th Annual CMA Awards including Musical Event of the Year and Music Video of the Year.

Known for penning Platinum No. 1 hits for Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan, Lady A and more, Hurd continues 2022 writing on songs for Jordan Davis (“What My World Spins Around” – currently Top 10), Connor Smith (“Take It Slow”), Breland (Happy Song”), Maddie & Tae (“Well In Your World”), Adam Doleac (“Fake Love”) and Morris (“I Can’t Love You Anymore”). Hurd recently won a 2022 ASCAP Country Award for Luke Bryan’s “Waves.”
