Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd are bringing their love and music to the ACM Awards stage.

On Sunday, the couple — who wed in March 2018 and share 1-year-old son Hayes Andrew — performed their duet "Chasing After You" at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. The performance marked the first time they have played together at an awards show.

Last weekend, Hurd showered Morris with love on her 31st birthday. "It's been a hell of a year, but you are an incredible mom, partner, artist, and you make my life better every day. I am always proud of you and I love watching you make music and live the life we get to live together. Cake! Margaritas! HOORAY! 🎉🎂🥂 🤗," he shared on Instagram, along with a photo from their "Chasing After You" music video.
