Ryan Hurd (RCA Nashville)
5/10/17

WHAT IT IS: Hurd is following a unique strategy of releasing music prior to radio or downloads. “We Do Us”—the first song released on Spotify—received 2m+ streams in just three weeks, and a subsequent release, “City Girl,” has already crossed the 10m mark. He’s joined an elite group of artists from all genres to be featured in Vevo’s dscvr program. He was also included in Rolling Stone Country’s “Artists You Need to Know” list, and CMT named him one of its Listen Up Artists of 2016. As a writer, he’s penned songs that have been recorded by Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Jake Owen, Maren Morris, Tim McGraw and Florida Georgia Line, including a #1 single and the current Lady Antebellum single.
