The video takes fans on a wild ride
ACM Male Vocalist of the Year Thomas Rhett is giving fans a glimpse of a different side of himself with the official music video for “Craving You” featuring Maren Morris out now. Shot in the style of an action-packed movie trailer over the course of two days in Nashville, Rhett and Morris take fans on a wild ride with a twist ending that director TK McKamy describes as “Jason Bourne meets Ocean’s Eleven meets Snatch.”
“There are a lot of crazy action scenes – a lot of firsts for me in general in this video,” states 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.”
The pair debuted the track at the 52nd Annual Academy of Country Music Awards on April 2nd where he won Male Vocalist of the Year and Song of the Year for “Die a Happy Man.” Morris was awarded New Female Vocalist of the Year.
“Craving You” is the lead single from Thomas Rhett’s upcoming third studio album due later this year. The release will follow his Platinum certified sophomore album Tangled Up Deluxe, which continues to rack up certifications and accolades, with “Star Of The Show” recently earning RIAA Gold Certification. He is currently playing sold-out stops on his 2017 Home Team Tour, “one of the best country concerts of the year” (Peoria Journal Star).
