Maren Morris and fellow singer-songwriter Ryan Hurd are engaged. The country singer shared the news on Instagram Sunday afternoon (July 9), where she posted a series of photos that casually show off her new ring.

"Yes," she captioned the first image of the brief slideshow -- with a diamond ring emoji, in case the news wasn't obvious.

Morris and Hurd first met at a songwriting session, where the two ended up penning "Last Turn Home," a ballad Tim McGraw chose to record. They became friends before becoming a couple.

“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?’” Morris told People.
