Maren Morris and her husband Ryan Hurd are nominated together for a 2021 CMA Award in the Musical Event category as well as the Video of the Year category for their duet “Chasing You.”
Morris, who is also nominated for Female Vocalist, says of her nominations with her husband, “’Event’ just sounds so epic. But I guess that’s an event during COVID, especially to put any music out. So to be yeah, whittled down to those five is a huge honor and then the Music Video category. I’ve been in once, maybe before.”
She adds of the video nod, “And it’s such a cool thing that they even have that category of the CMA’s because, you know, music videos are another facet of this artful paradigm we all do. And so, I love the visual aspect as much as the audio and sonic aspects. So I love that they honor that, and TK McKamy our director of the ‘Chasing After You’ music video just killed it.”
The video is just how she says she envisioned it. She said, ‘We were able to keep all the heart and soul of what the song is but then elevate it into this very tension, like sexy kind of smoky, avant-garde vibe. And yeah, I think we were able to pull it off. So we’re very excited to have that category nomination.”
