Morris initiated divorce proceedings from Hurd in October, marking the end of their five-year marriage.


Maren Morris is using music to express the conclusion of her marriage to Ryan Hurd. On Sunday, the 33-year-old singer posted a TikTok video of herself performing Tammy Wynette’s country classic “D-I-V-O-R-C-E.” In the video, Morris accompanies herself on the guitar and sings the lyrics, “Our D-I-V-O-R-C-E becomes final today.”

Additionally, Morris shared a clip from a wedding ceremony where the groom humorously vowed to “smack that ass every chance I get,” with overlaid text stating, “I would have been a runaway bride.”

As of now, a representative for Morris has not responded to PEOPLE’s request for comment. Morris filed for divorce from country singer Hurd, aged 37, after five years of marriage in October.


The singer-songwriter of “My Church,” Maren Morris, officially filed for divorce on October 2 in Tennessee, as confirmed by documents obtained by PEOPLE. The filing attributed “irreconcilable differences” as the grounds for the divorce.

According to the documents, the couple, who has a 3½-year-old son named Hayes Andrew, has been separated since the filing date.

In a recent revelation, Morris shared that she is not currently in the mindset for dating since filing for divorce earlier this month.


In an interview on SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show, Maren Morris shared with the host, Howard Stern, that her divorce is still “ongoing.” When Stern inquired about her current dating status, the Grammy winner responded, “No, I would like this to sort of wrap up,” referring to the divorce.

Morris elaborated, stating, “I don’t have the headspace for that, but I am writing so much right now. That’s kind of been my way of dating, is just through song.”

Maren Morris also acknowledged that “a lot of people that are close to me have gone through” similar experiences this year. She added, “I’ve known so many people that have gone through breakups or divorces.” This shared understanding of the challenges faced by others has seemingly provided a sense of commonality during a difficult time.

Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd first crossed paths in 2013 during a songwriting session for Tim McGraw. After nearly three years of dating, they exchanged vows in March 2018 in Nashville.

A year before their marriage, Morris shared insights with PEOPLE about their relationship, emphasizing the evolution from friendship to romance. She stated, “We had been friends for only a couple of years, but there was always this writing chemistry in the room, and eventually, the timing of it was undeniable. We had such a foundation built off writing so many songs over the years that we were like, ‘Why are we avoiding this?’”
