Ryan Hurd: ‘To a T’ Single Review

If you didn’t know the name before, hopefully you do by now. 2019 will be an exciting year for one of our personal favorite singer songwriters, Ryan Hurd. This Michigan native kicked off 2019 with all of his current tour stops sold out and two new singles on the radio. We are waiting to see where else he will stop on his tour but in the meantime, we can’t stop listening to his most recent single to be released, ‘To a T.’

Hurd’s newly debuted ‘To a T’ was co-written with Laura Veltz and Nathan Spicer as a follow up to ‘Diamonds or Twine’ which was a wedding gift to his talented wife, Maren Morris. You can check out that review here.  Not only is Morris a muse for her husband but she sings the harmonies on his most recent track.

Hurd is pulling at our heart strings yet again with these intimate lyrics. Take off your makeup, nobody’s around it’s you and me, girl, just let your guard down starts off this sexy song. Stripped down to basics, a t-shirt, white sheets and red wine, how much more vulnerable can you get?

Hurd’s talking about how well he’s figured her out, he knows what she needs and how comfortable she must be to let her guard down and close her eyes. He declares his love with I got you down to a T.

We are impatiently waiting for Hurd’s highly anticipated debut album coming out this year. Stay tuned as you won’t want to miss this one.

Favorite Lyrics: Stay here ’til sunrise, I wanna know you like it’s the last time I’ll ever hold you

Ryan Hurd: ‘Diamonds or Twine’ Single Review

Ryan Hurd has written songs for country artists Tim McGraw, Florida Georgia Line, Blake Shelton, Maren Morris, Jake Owen, Lindsay Ell, Eli Young Band, Dierks Bentley and the list continues.  Hurd decided to take an extra step of not only just writing songs but decided to he wanted to record.  Hurd released his self-titled EP in 2017. His single ‘Love in a Bar’ is about his relationship that developed with Maren Morris after being creative partners.  Little did they know ‘Love in a Bar’ would turn into something so much larger.

Hurd and Morris recently became newlyweds and the love between the two is so simple and genuine which Hurd sings about in his new single ‘Diamonds or Twine.’  And just like the newlyweds, ‘Diamonds or Twine’ has history.  This single was cowritten with Laura Veltz and Mark Trussel however, the lyrics come straight from Hurd’s heart.  Hurd had originally played it for Morris the night they were engaged. And this past Friday, March 23, the day before their wedding, ‘Diamonds or Twine’ was released as a gift to the bride-to-be. Talk about raising the bar!

‘Diamonds or Twine’ is all about love and finding that person who is your “no-matter-what.” With lyrics that replicate wedding like vows, Hurd professes his forever love and promises when the bad times come I ain’t gonna run.  It’s poetic and real. Hurd tells Sirius XM The Highway that the hook, doesn’t matter if it’s diamonds or twine I’ll be wrapped around your finger is another way of saying for rich or for poor.  Simply ‘diamonds, meaning if we have everything, and in twine, meaning if we don’t.’

Hurd’s raspy voice paired with the soft melody and electric guitar, ‘Diamond or Twine’ has a slow rock feel.  You won’t want to stop listening to this love ballad.  Share with someone you love and give it a listen here!

Favorite Lyric: You make love feel so real, so simple and honest. It’s in every breath and every kiss…
