THE B-SIDE
Ryan Hurd (Sony Music Nashville)
11/13/16

WHAT IT IS: Ryan Hurd has written songs that have been recorded by Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Jake Owen, Maren Morris, Tim McGraw and FGL, among many others. In 2015, he celebrated his first #1 single as a songwriter with the Grammy & CMA-nominated duet, “Lonely Tonight,” which was recorded by Shelton and Ashley Monroe. Now, the Kalamazoo, MI native is lending his own voice to the songs on his forthcoming debut album. Following a unique strategy of releasing music and videos without radio or downloads available, “We Do Us”—the first song released on Spotify—received 2m+ streams in just three weeks. Hurd has also joined an elite group of artists of all genres to be featured in Vevo’s dscvr program (Sam Smith, Halsey, Leon Bridges, Hozier). He was included in Rolling Stone Country’s “Artists You Need to Know” list, and CMT named him one of their “Listen Up” Artists of 2016.
