The vocalist initiated divorce proceedings from her musician spouse of five years on October 2nd in Tennessee.


Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd have successfully reached a settlement agreement in their divorce, concluding the process three months after Morris filed for divorce in October.

According to court documents obtained by PEOPLE, the former couple finalized their agreement on all aspects of their divorce. The documents were notarized on Dec. 28, 2023, and Jan. 4, 2024, by Morris and Hurd, respectively. While the divorce is still pending until a judge approves it, the couple divided their assets based on a property settlement agreement and a prenuptial agreement signed in February 2018 and amended in October 2022.

Additionally, Morris and Hurd agreed on a parenting plan for their son Hayes Andrew, aged 3½. The plan entails an equal division of time between the parents, and Morris will pay Hurd $2,100 per month in child support.

The “Circles Around This Town” singer filed for a dissolution of marriage on Oct. 2 in Tennessee, citing irreconcilable differences. Morris specified in the documents that the date of separation coincided with the day she filed for divorce.


Both Morris and Hurd have successfully fulfilled the requirement of attending a parenting seminar mandated by Davidson County for all divorce cases involving children.

The completion of the divorce proceedings follows Morris’s sharing of a TikTok video where she sings Tammy Wynette’s country classic “D-I-V-O-R-C-E,” with the lyrics, “Our D-I-V-O-R-C-E becomes final today.” Additionally, she stitched a clip from a wedding ceremony featuring a groom’s humorous vow, overlaying the words, “I would have been a runaway bride.”

In an interview with Howard Stern in December, the Humble Quest singer candidly discussed her life post-split, revealing that she is not currently in the right “headspace” for dating. Responding to Stern’s inquiry about her dating status, Morris stated, “No, I would like this to sort of wrap up. 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.”

She also acknowledged that many close to her had experienced similar situations throughout the year. “A lot of people that are close to me have gone through” something similar this year, she shared. “I’ve known so many people that have gone through breakups or divorces,” Morris added.

Morris and Hurd initially 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.

Reflecting on their relationship in a 2017 interview with PEOPLE, Morris shared, “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?'” This highlighted the natural progression of their connection, which evolved from a strong foundation of collaborative songwriting.
