With all of the success that Thomas Rhett (CMA Single of the Year, ACM Male Vocalist of the Year) and Maren Morris (CMA New Artist of the Year, ACM New Female Vocalist of the Year, Grammy Best Country Solo Performance) have had over the last six months, they might feel like they’re stuck in the feel-good movie of the year. Perhaps that’s why the tandem decided to team up in a new movie-like video for “Craving You,” the first single from TR’s upcoming album. Maren’s vocals are featured on the new single.
The new video was directed by frequent TR collaborator TK McKamy, who also directed the videos for “Make Me Wanna,” “Die a Happy Man” and “Crash and Burn,” among others. Much like a movie trailer, the five-minute music video is full of twists and turns—focusing more on action than actual plot.
“There are a lot of crazy action scenes—a lot of firsts for me, in general, in this video,” said Thomas Rhett. “I’ve always wanted to get to do a fight sequence and play a tough guy, but I think Maren definitely shows me up. TK really pushed us both since we’d never really acted before.”
“Craving You,” which was written by Dave Barnes and Julian Bunetta, is currently No. 18 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart after five weeks.
