Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd have no problem merging their private and professional lives. For his "Love in a Bar" music video, Hurd tapped his real-life fiancée to play his onscreen love interest.

The country music stars got engaged in July, and have remained relatively quiet about their relationship ever since. But Hurd's black-and-white music video, which shows the pair cuddling on a couch and going for romantic boat rides, puts their love on full display. It's pretty obvious that these two are an item in real life-it's hard to fake chemistry like that!

This may be the first we've heard about the couple as of late, but Morris and Hurd haven't been entirely close-lipped about their bond. Morris opened up to ET Online about Hurd's proposal back in August, describing his plan as "so emotional and so perfect." "Oh, I sobbed," she continued. "He's a very thoughtful human being, and I feel like the proposal was just as thoughtful as he always is. So it was perfect." Though they're in the early stages of wedding planning, Morris revealed that they'd already decided on a season. "I think we're kind of honing in on the springtime, before we kick off our tours again," she said.

The Grammy winner announced her engagement with an Instagram photo of her sitting on her fiancé's lap, a diamond on one hand and a Corona in the other. The snap was a direct reference to Hurd's "Love in a Bar," which makes her involvement in the song's video even sweeter. Hurd told People earlier this year that the song was "very much an autobiographical song about my relationship with Maren."
