The name, Ryan Hurd, sounded familiar to me when this song popped up on Spotify recently. I think it was on the Wild Country playlist, but it could have been the Hot Country list. Both of those are the big time lists in the country world as far as Spotify goes.
It turns out that Ryan Hurd has been kicking around the country world for a little while. He’s a songwriter and just scored a number one with Lonely Tonight that Blake Shelton and Ashley Monroe recorded.
Now it’s time for Ryan to breakout as an artist. Let’s check out this new release.
We Do Us – Ryan Hurd
When the song first started playing I wasn’t paying attention to the details and I thought it was a Maren Morris song coming on, which would have been cool. It turns out that it’s likely her on the track since her and Ryan have been dating. I think they’re still together.
So that’s pretty cool and she brings something different and groovy to the track. It’s a fun track. It’s about life and enjoying being your own self with the person you care about the most in the world. It doesn’t matter what others think.
That’s a cool place to be in life. If you can be your own true self with the person you choose to spend your time with then you have a leg up on life.
This is a good one. Ryan has a major label behind him and I think this one should become a hit.
