Great things are already happening this year for artist on the rise Ryan Hurd. The country newcomer is the newest addition to Sony Music Nashville on the RCA Nashville roster, joining fellow label mates Miranda Lambert, Jake Owen, Old Dominion, Chris Young and Kane Brown.

“I’m convinced Ryan Hurd will be one of our new artist breakouts in 2017,” shares Sony Music Nashville Chairman and CEO, Randy Goodman. “He delivers on every level from his innovative songwriting to his dynamic live show. I’ve long been a fan of Ryan’s songwriting and everyone at Sony Music Nashville, particularly RCA, are happy and honored to have the opportunity to work alongside him.”

Hurd has quickly been making a lasting impression on fans and the industry, and is included on several Ones To Watch lists for 2017, including ours (check it out here). Ryan has co-written and shared four new tracks over the course of four months, “We Do Us,” Love In A Bar,” “City Girl,” and “Hold You Back,” all of which are great additions to the country music format.

The winter season will be jammed pack for Ryan Hurd. You can find him on tour this winter with Maren Morris on the HERO Tour, as well as Thomas Rhett’s Home Team Tour. For a full list of tour dates and more, please visit
