Maren Morris is getting ready to debut her long-awaited new album, and she took to her social media channels to share a heartwarming message to her husband days before releasing Humble Quest. The sweet photo shows Morris and her husband, fellow country singer-songwriter Ryan Hurd, locked in an embrace. Morris credits: “This album wouldn’t have happened without you.”
The singer-songwriter power couple has long supported one another’s careers. Similarly, when Hurd released his debut album Pelago in October of 2021, he credited his duet with Morris with setting up “the entire album.” “Chasing After You” is a hit song that will “always be the most special song, I think, in our catalog,” Hurd said at the time. When his album released, Morris gushed that she “cannot keep the tears in my eyes today…I am the proudest wife and co-writer that exists on this planet today, so, PASS IT ON.”
Now, Morris is just a few days away from releasing Humble Quest. The highly-anticipated album is set to drop on Friday (March 25), and Morris has already released a few tracks that fans have loved, including “Circles Around This Town,” “Background Music” and “Nervous.” Morris deemed Humble Quest a collection that includes “the stories of my rises, my overshares, my appreciation of Midwestern guys who stand at least a foot taller than me, my lullabies, my wine-soaked conversations with a dear friend and my final goodbye to one.”
Morris is one of many artists included in the star-studded lineup at the iHeartCountry Festival presented by Capital One, set for May 7 in Austin, Texas. Fans can tune in and stream the 2022 iHeartCountry Festival on iHeartMedia's Country music radio stations in local markets across the country, as well as on iHeartRadio.com and the iHeartRadio app on May 7th at 8pm ET/5pm PT (7pm CT).
