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.”
Rhett is currently on the road for his Home Team Tour. Morris, meanwhile, will soon join Sam Hunt for his 15 in a 30 Tour.
