Aside from his great music, he has a great mind. You’ll know this if you have a conversation with him for 5 minutes.
In light of the recent tragedy in the UK, Hurd shared some powerful words in response to his girlfriend, Maren Morris’, own powerful words. (Read Maren’s here)
“We talked about this all day yesterday. It’s heavy and it should hit close to home. There’s sadness and honestly a part of us that feels fear, and truth be told I’m scared to death that she’s going over there Sunday for promo. I feel like most of the time our job is to be a mirror, but there’s a reason that we’re given a microphone. There is nothing else to say about someone strapping a nail bomb to their chest to kill kids at a concert, but scared or not, we’re going to sing our faces off in November. Songs about music being our church, about love in bars like the O2 Ritz, about hate being present but not winning in the end. Proud of MM every day, but fuck talking about bodyguards instead of rock and roll, country music, and the excitement of a tour. She’s one of the few and always the first to use her voice for more than just singing, but I’m excited for her to just get to sing. See you in November.”
