The cutest country couple. Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd brought the house down with their duet at the 2022 CMT Music Awards — but did you catch the sweet moment they shared?
While the Highwomen member, 32, and her husband, 35, were performing her song “I Can’t Love You Anymore” during the ceremony on Monday, April 11, Hurd turned to his wife and mouthed something as she sang the line, “You like me even when I’ve been a bitch.”
The “My Church” singer revealed that her spouse was simply reassuring her that she’s always perfectly nice. “For the record, @ryanhurd said ‘you’re not a bitch, baby’ which made me laugh and almost miss my next lyric.,” the Texas native wrote via Instagram on Tuesday, April 12, alongside a clip from the performance. “I truly can’t love you anymore than I do now.”
The duo, who tied the knot in March 2018, cowrote “I Can’t Love You Anymore,” which appears on Morris’ latest album, Humble Quest. Hurd also contributed to several other songs on the album, including “Circles Around This Town” and “The Furthest Thing.”
Last year, the pair collaborated on Hurd’s single “Chasing After You,” which was their first official duet. “It’s amazing to finally be able to do a song with Maren,” the Michigan native told Stage Right Secrets in February 2021.
