co-written by Hurd and singer/songwriter Joey Hyde, “Love In A Bar” showcases Ryan’s celebrated lyricism as a writer and soulful, gravelly vocals. The electric, autobiographical, anthemic track from the Grammy-nominated songwriter has notched more than 17 million streams since its initial release last year.
As one of Nashville’s most-celebrated young writing talents with songs cut by Blake Shelton, Brothers Osborne, Dierks Bentley and Lady Antebellum, Ryan captured the country format with his artistry by releasing his self-titled EP, consisting of 4 tracks and 4 music videos.
Billboard praised Hurd’s unique release strategy saying, “…Hurd has been impressively attracting a variety of listeners, solidifying himself as an emerging artist-to-watch with each track he releases.”
