Ryan Hurd has a massive hit on his hands with his brand new single, “Every Other Memory.”
The nostalgia-filled track is the follow-up to Hurd’s Top 20 hit “To A T” and finds the new father crooning over a past lover. With its descriptive lyrics and related storyline, “Every Other Memory” has the potential to become Hurd’s biggest hit yet.
The singer/songwriter shared his thoughts on the track and the overwhelming response he’s received from fans with Country Now, telling us he had a feeling the song was “special” from the beginning.
“From the moment we recorded “Every Other Memory” in the studio, I knew this song was special,” Hurd explains. “I love the element of nostalgia and feel honored that it has resonated with so many people. I’m so glad we were able to release it right now, but even more excited to play this one on the road someday soon.”
“Every Other Memory” is also a family affair as Hurd’s wife, Maren Morris, provides background vocals on the track.
Hurd, who co-wrote “Every Other Memory” with Nathan Spicer and Cole Taylor, recently visited Nashville’s iconic The Bluebird Cafe to perform the song in honor of the song hitting country radio. Click above to watch his performance from the famed venue.
“Every Other Memory” is Hurd’s first new music release since the debut of his Platonic EP last fall. The song is available to stream/download HERE.
