Each Friday at 9:30am, KICK-FM will feature an artist on the rise during the Breakthrough Artist of the Week, brought to you by Glass One Quincy.

This Michigan native has been writing hit songs for some major artists over the past few years, including Dierks Bentley, Tim McGraw, and his girlfriend Maren Morris, and picked up Grammy and CMA nominations for the Blake Shelton & Ashley Monroe duet "Lonely Tonight." But now he's ready to sing his own words, with the recent release of his debut EP, the self-titled Ryan Hurd. He's joining Florida Georgia Line for some shows during their 2017 tour, including their St. Louis show! For more about Ryan Hurd, check out his website. His Ryan Hurd - EP, featuring the single Love in a Bar, is available on Amazon.
