Marriages and weddings typically mark a huge milestone in life. In today’s times, for many, the big day has strayed from the traditional ways and encouraged couples to lean into personalizing ceremonies and details surrounding the momentous occasion.
Maren Morris and Laura Veltz have collaborated on a number of projects
Setting chart records, Morris and Veltz’s collaboration on “The Bones” was a home run. In 2021, the track was awarded Song of the Year at the ACM awards.
A few years ago, Morris was on the Bobby Bones Show, and she discussed everything from her music to her marriage to Ryan Hurd, a fellow singer and songwriter. In the interview, the popular country singer was able to touch on her relationship with the esteemed songwriter Veltz.
In Morris’ interview with Bobby Bones, she gave insight into her and Veltz’s professional and personal relationship. The duo spent a lot of time writing together on the road back when Morris was opening for Sam Hunt. In a CMT spotlight shared on Facebooksimply put, Morris explained that they are both “melody junkies.”
Morris’ interview with vulture was another instance when she highlighted her close connection to Veltz. From the talented songwriter’s skills of her to her perspective and opinion of her, Veltz definitely seems to mean a whole lot to Morris. As Morris put it, “I’d still think at the end of the day, you always know when it’s a Laura Veltz song.”
Maren Morris had Laura Veltz perform at her and Ryan Hurd’s wedding
Morris‘ first ever song came with the help of Veltz, and, as luck would have it, it was a love song. Striking quite a successful chord, the duo seemed to be a music match. On that note, perhaps it is perfectly fitting for Morris to have asked Veltz to perform at her wedding back in 2018.
One Country reported Natalie Hemby, Lucie Silvas, Ian Fitchuk, and, of course, Veltz were some of Morris’ friends who showed up on the big day to serenade her down the aisle. The song of choice was “Hold On” by Wilson Phillips. Silva’s beautiful instagram post said it all.
