Hear more from Country Countdown USA Saturday morning at 9!

Lon Helton returns this week, and his co-hosts are Maren Morris and her husband Ryan Hurd.  They just released a duet called “Chasing After You.”  They tell Lon that they’ve had the song for a few years, but with the time off, they revisited it as a duet in their basement studio.  In fact they recorded the song in the same studio where they co-hosted the Countdown!

Having them co-host together allowed Lon to revisit how they met: Writing a song for Tim McGraw. Maren said it was pitched to Tim the day they wrote it, and he invited the writers to an album release party.  Ryan recalled “That is one of my favorite memories getting started, that party was incredible, it’s funny at how star-struck we were that day to meet Tim & Faith.”

March is a busy month for them.  March 23rd is their son Hayes’ 1st birthday.  Lon asks if they’ll get Hayes a smash cake.  Ryan says, “I don’t know what that is, but it sounds like a great idea.  I can tell you with 100% certainty we’ll be doing the smash cake.  Just the name alone is worth the time and investment.”
