Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd have reached a divorce settlement agreement after Morris filed last October, People reports.

According to documents obtained by People, Morris and Hurd are in accord with all issues surrounding their divorce, with the former couple signing notarized documents on 28 December and 4 January, respectively.

The divorce will be official after a judge has signed off on the papers. Morris and Hurd have reportedly split their time evenly with their three-and-a-half-year-old son, Hayes Andrew. They also separated their assets via a previously signed property settlement agreement and the prenup they initially signed in 2018 and amended in October 2022. Morris will also pay Hurd $2,100 monthly for child support.

Morris and Hurd met at a songwriting session with Tim McGraw in 2013. After years of friendship, the pair pursued a romantic relationship and married in 2018 following three years of dating.

Last April, Morris teased that her follow-up album to 2022’s Humble Quest would be “angry” and go in a more rock-oriented direction.

“I think my last record was super internal and organic, feeling tons of guitars, steel guitar. It felt like very organic country. And this one is going in a more rock direction,” Morris told Katie & Company’s Katie Neal at Audacy’s Leading Ladies event on International Women’s Day (8 March). “It’s really fun. I’m excited because it’s just all my influences are getting barfed out on this one.”

While work was only in the demo stages then, she added, “I mean, it’s thus far pretty confessional, and I mean, I feel like it’s a rock realm it’s going into. I don’t quite know what it is yet. They’re just demos, so I kind of find out when I get in the studio. But yeah, it’s [like a] diary.”

“[It’s] visceral, super vulnerable, but fun too,” she continued. “So, I don’t know, on my last record, it was during the pandemic, so we tried to just do what we could during that time where everything was remote, doing Zoom sessions, [and] whatnot. And this feels like we’re back.”

In September, Morris revealed that she was ready to leave country music.
