Two of country music’s hottest young stars—Thomas Rhett and Maren Morris—are teaming up for a new single.
Thomas Rhett will give fans the first taste of his upcoming third studio album on March 31 when he releases his new single, “Craving You,” which features Maren.
“I remember hearing ‘Craving You’ and was immediately blown away by the story behind the longing of this guy who can’t wait to see his girl again,” said Thomas Rhett in a press release. “There’s this ’80s vibe that’s rocking throughout this track that makes it really euphoric. It was so nice to be able to work with Maren, whose voice is undeniably powerful and soulful, and just really adds a lot of intensity to the song.”
TR has been on a tear since 2013, with six of his past seven singles reaching No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, while Maren was the breakout star of 2016 with her studio album, Hero, which helped her earn CMA, Grammy and ACM awards within the last few months.
TR’s label, Big Machine, posted the news on their Instagram page this morning (March 24) with the message: “Cannot WAIT for you to hear new @thomasrhettakins music! #CravingYou available everywhere, March 31st! 🙌🏼 #Repost @thomasrhettakins with @repostapp Your first taste of album #3 coming next week!
