Ryan Hurd is turning heads with his cover of Taylor Swift’s “False God.”
The singer/songwriter recently debuted a live music video for the slow-burning cover, featuring footage from his recent Platonic Tour.
“Thank you @taylorswift13 for the song clinic. My favorite song off of Lover. We covered this live on Platonic, it felt like a deep dive into someone else’s poetry,” Hurd wrote on Twitter.
The new father and husband of Maren Morris even caught the attention of Swift herself, who took to social media to give Hurd her stamp of approval. “Love this so much,” the former country starlet wrote alongside the praying hands emoji.
“We might just get away with it/ Religion’s in your lips/ Even if it’s a false god/ We’d still worship/ We might just get away with it/ The altar is your hips/ Even if it’s a false god/ We’d still worship this love,” Hurd croons throughout the chorus.
“False God” appears on Swift’s seventh studio album, Lover, and was co-written by Swift alongside Jack Antonoff.
