Married life is not without its ups and downs, but when you and your partner are in it forever, things end up flowing much smoother.
Such is the case for Nashville beauty Maren Morris, who spoke up about her marital life with her husband of over three years, Ryan Hurd.
In a recent interview, the “All That It Takes” singer got candid about why she feels like she and her spouse won the jackpot by tying the knot with each other.
Maren Morris Gushes About ‘Jackpot’ Marriage To Ryan Hurd
While on the red carpet at the 2022 edition of the CMT Music Awards on Monday, April 11, Morris got candid with ET Online about married life with Hurd.
The “Chasing After You” musician recounted that she and her husband had faced issues juggling their personal and professional lives over the years but are better at it now. She said,
We’ve had years where it’s been hard, and we are still trying to find that — I think we are better now at finding the balance of home time and work time.
The daughter of Gregory and Kellie Morris explained that she and her spouse have significantly improved when it comes to standing their ground about their personal life.
Morris continued that she and Hurd have their struggles and love each other through them, adding that she will always support all of his dreams the same way he does hers.
She added, “And so I know we can kinda make it through anything because this is a tough industry to stay married in and even find love in so, I feel like — we hit the jackpot, so everything else is like, clear skies.”
Speaking of the music industry, Morris showed up at the 2022 CMT Music Awards as a nominee who performed her heartwarming new song with her loving husband.
The performer noted that Monday night was their first time performing the single titled “I Can’t Love You Anymore,” which is based on a real-life narrative.
The “Circles Around This Town” singer clarified that the duet she was about to perform was a narration of their “weird-ass love story.” She concluded about her marriage,
“We’ve been together so long. We have a son that’s two now, so we have our moments for sure that aren’t rainbows and sunshine, but we just laugh our way through it because we know we are gonna be in this till the end, and we better get it together.”
The ‘Humble Quest’ Musician Talks Life-Changing Motherhood And Music Inclusivity
Morris recently opened up about her fight for inclusivity in the music industry and how being a mother to her adorable two-year-old son Hayes Andrew Hurd has changed her life forever.
In March, The Blast disclosed that the Grammy winner opened up about these topics in an interview ahead of the release of her third studio album “Humble Quest.”
Morris said Hayes, born in March 2020, weeks after her memorable performance at the Houston Rodeo, changed her personal and creative life forever.
She gushed, “He’s already taught me so much about how to be a person. It helped me see things in a deeper way and just feel more empathy for my fellow human beings, having to raise one.”
The country singer also spoke about her celebrated image as an activist in the music field and what motivated her to champion the cause of inclusivity.
Morris credited her fight for ending the existence of racial inequality to the sexist double standards in the music industry.
While accepting an award for female vocalist of the year in 2020, the “HERO” musician used the opportunity to celebrate female country singers of color worldwide.
In October that year, Morris released a song on the Black Lives Matter movement titled “Better Than We Found It,” earning her a Grammy nomination for Best Country Song.
The “Hummingbird” artist admitted that she did not begin her music career with activism in mind but could not look away from the injustice once she noticed it.
She explained, “I didn’t start making music to become an activist. I think it was a byproduct of just seeing the inequality in the genre I happened to come up in. Once you become aware of it, you can’t really shut your eyes again.”
