Ryan Hurd recently released his debut album titled Pelago. The singer-songwriter shares the process he took in making the album.

“Thinking through the recording process for Pelago, I think you only get one shot to make a debut full-length album. And so I think the biggest deal for me was the song choices. I just wanted to really put the songwriting first, and then after that, what I really focused on was the singing. So I’d show up for vocal days and we do one or two songs at a time; and then it was just back into mix world, and that’s the product that you have now. So it was a super relaxed way to make an album and I think that’s something that you can hear in these recordings. And so yeah, I’m super proud of it.”

Pelago features the song “Chasing After You” which Ryan recorded with his wife Maren Morris. Listen for the song on Bloomington-Normal’s #1 Country, B104.
