Ryan Hurd was all about the good vibes when he treated the audience to some of the best songs from his debut album, which included “Coast,” “Platonic,” “To A T,” “Pass It On,” and of course, his smash-hit song he released with his superstar wife Maren Morris, “Chasing After You,” (though Morris’ voice played on a recorded track, rather than an onstage appearance), among other fan-favorites.

Bobby Bones introduced the hit-making singer-songwriter stepped onto the Daytime Stage at the 2022 iHeartRadio Music Festival on Saturday afternoon (September 24). Hurd — who has written or co-written tons of No. 1 hits like Luke Bryan's “Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset” and “Waves,” Blake Shelton’s “Lonely Tonight,” and Lady A’s “What If I Never Get Over You” and “You Look Good,” to name a few — dropped his debut solo project, Pelago, in October 2021. He credited Morris with helping to jumpstart the entire 15-track album via the power couple’s heartfelt duet: “It’s been amazing to see the ride this song has taken us on. …It really set up this entire album…It’ll always be the most special song, I think, in our catalog.”

Hurd spread good vibes with the crowd as he closed his set, performing “Pass It On” (which featured another moment with Morris, who made a cameo appearance in Hurd’s music video as she played a server at a roller rink and romantically shared a slushie drink with her real-life hubby): “Pass it on/ Pass it on/ Pass it on to someone else/ What good is your dollar or your love or your bottle/ If you keep it all to yourself/ There's enough to go around/ So send it on down/ ‘Cause you can't take it with you when you're gone/ So pass it on, pass it on, pass it on.”
