Watch Thomas Rhett and Maren Morris’ Action-Packed ‘Craving You’ Music Video
Thomas Rhett and Maren Morris‘ “Craving You” music video is an action-packed movie trailer-style clip featuring the two country stars as criminals working for a big boss — well, sort of. Readers can press play above to watch.
Directed by TK McKamy and shot in Nashville over two days, the “Craving You” clip finds Rhett and Morris acting as a team to rob a bank … and then, when delivering their stolen goods, turn the tables on the guy in charge. Throughout the clip, Rhett adds some levity and comedy with a few wisecracks and small actions, while Morris generally acts like a total bada–.
“There are a lot of crazy action scenes — a lot of firsts for me in general in this video,” Rhett says in a press release. “I’ve always wanted to get to do a fight sequence and play a tough guy, but I think Maren definitely shows me up!”
Viewers of the “Craving You” music video will also see Rhett’s real-life wife Lauren, who plays his pregnant significant other (of course, that’s Rhett’s real-life baby girl in Lauren’s stomach, too!). She’s the hint that perhaps not all is as it seems — and, by the end of the video, the jig is up.

“Craving You” was written by Julian Bunetta and Dave Barnes. Rhett wasn’t able to make the co-writing session, as he was sick, but he was “blown away” by the song, which he describes as “a little bit emotional, a little bit tense,” when he heard it. It is the first single from Rhett’s forthcoming third studio album.
“It was so nice to be able to work with — you know, there’s a lot of females that are killing it right now, and Maren is definitely one of those girls whose voice is just undeniably powerful and soulful, and on top of that, [she’s] just a really, really sweet person to work with,” Rhett says. “I think she just adds so much life and so much intensity to this song.”
