Copy of Ryan Hurd on Going Country

The songwriter talks about his transition to the stage.

You may not have heard of Ryan Hurd yet, but we guarantee you've heard the songs he's written. Stars like Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley, Jake Owen, Brothers Osborne, Maren Morris, Tim McGraw, Florida Georgia Line, and Rascal Flatts have all recorded Hurd's music, making him one of the most successful country music writers in the game.

Now, he's embarking on a solo career as a singer-songwriter and has already risen to number one on Sirius XM's The Highway Hot Country with his emotional hit "Diamonds or Twine." He soon followed the success of that single with "To a T," cementing his place in the country music community.

Hurd stopped by the Popdust offices to speak about his upcoming album, musical collaboration with his wife, and touring internationally.
