Now We Know When Maren Morris Is Getting Married
Maren Morris spilled a key detail about her upcoming wedding to Ryan Hurd in a post to social media on Monday (Jan. 29).
The fast-rising star posted a picture of herself and Hurd raising a glass to each other, with him gazing at her adoringly and her beaming at him. "Two months till we say 'I do,'" she writes to accompany the photo on Instagram. That would indicate a wedding is most likely planned for the last weekend of March 2018.
The couple met when both were rising songwriters in the Nashville scene, and their blossoming romance was the inspiration for Hurd's single, "Love in a Bar."

"I met Maren writing songs and I met her when I was starting to have success," Hurd tells People. "We wrote 'Last Turn Home,' that Tim McGraw recorded, and we would write and then after we’d go over to a bar in Midtown and have a couple beers. That’s when we started making a real connection, beyond a creative partnership."
Since the couple are in the spotlight all the time, they plan to keep their wedding simple.
"Ryan and I are given attention all the time, and I feel like it's a year of us being celebrated because we make music and we had really incredible years," Morris tells Taste of Country Nights. "The wedding ... I just want it to feel like us the people and not us the artists. We're gonna have some tequila, my dog's gonna be there."
Morris has a lot to celebrate on the career side, as well. She recently scored her first No. 1 hit with "I Could Use a Love Song," and she collaborated with Zedd and on a new pop song and video titled "The Middle," which debuted in a splashy commercial spot during the 2018 Grammy Awards on Sunday night (Jan. 28).
