Ryan Hurd 'Never Expected' Maren Morris Duet 'Chasing After You' to Become a Hot 100 Hit

Neither Ryan Hurd nor Maren Morris are strangers to writing and recording love-centric material, with Hurd's songs including “Love in a Bar” and “To a T,” while Morris is known for hits like "The Bones" and “I Could Use a Love Song.”

Now, the couple is rising high on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart with their first official duet, “Chasing After You,” which sits at No. 24 (the song also lands at No. 7 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart).

“I think we knew that people would like it, but we never expected it to take on the life that it has,” Hurd tells Billboard of the song, which was written by Brinley Addington and Jerry Flowers.
