Ryan Hurd is celebrating love in the music video for his song “To A T.” In the nearly three-minute-long clip, Hurd highlights four real couples in varying stages of their relationships, while also showcasing a magnitude of ages, races, orientations and more. The video introduces each couple with a summary of where their lives are.
Gabriella and Daniel are newly engaged after 10 months, while Chelsea and Julian have been married for one year and have a baby boy on the way. Tiana and Liz have been together for three years, while Grace and Don have been married for 52.
The video follows the couples through romantic rendezvous and fun adventures, with shots of Hurd in the home he shares with fellow country star Maren Morris. While Morris isn’t physically with Hurd, she’s seen on FaceTime during a brief chat during her time out on the road.
Hurd wrote “To A T” with the help of Laura Veltz and Nathan Spicer about his relationship with Morris. Finding inspiration was easy for Hurd as his wife has long served as a muse for his songs.
“I think a lot of times in Nashville we write so many songs that inspiration is not necessarily a key ingredient, because a lot of it is just going to work—finding a good idea and figuring out the angle to write it. But the joke on Music Row is that if you’re writing a song with Ryan you’re writing a song about Maren,” Hurd told Sounds Like Nashville recently. “There were so many songs that I was writing when we were getting together that were so blatantly obviously about her that people were just kind of laughing. Like in a fun way. I remember when we wrote ‘You Look Good’ for Lady Antebellum. I’m writing with busbee and he’s just reading down all these references I was writing and he’s turning around and he’s like, ‘I know what we’re talking about…’”
“To A T” is one of a few songs Hurd has released in recent months. Among them are “Michigan for the Winter,” “Diamonds or Twine” and “Love In A Bar.” Hurd will take all of the tracks out on the road for his headlining To A T Tour. Check out the list of dates below.
