Thomas Rhett, Maren Morris Share Behind-the-Scenes Secrets of ‘Craving You’ Video
In a behind-the-scenes tour, Rhett takes fans inside the music video directed by TK McKamy, who has worked with the country star on several other videos, including “Die a Happy Man.”
“Craving You” was shot in and around Nashville and stars Rhett and Morris as two trouble-causing criminals. Morris says that her favorite scene to shoot was her bank robbery, as she walks in like she owns the place with a (fake) gun in hand. “I feel like a real bad—,” she admits. “What I loved about the song just as someone that loves all types of genres and music and listens to everything, I loved the pop quality to it, but also the songwriting is really right on and structured well, but there’s also this dark mysteriousness to the song and I think the video really plays into that in a really great way visually.”
As for the epic fight scene that takes place inside the warehouse, Rhett got a little help from a professional stunt actor whose credits include The Fate of the Furious, Captain America and other blockbuster action films. There’s also a little romance thrown in the video, as Rhett’s wife Lauren and her adorable baby bump also star in some romantic scenes. ”
We needed this piece to really tie in what the song meant,” he says of shooting the emotional moments in the video with his wife.
Rhett surprised viewers with the “Craving You” video when it was released at midnight on Friday (May 5). The song is racing towards the No. 1 spot, currently sitting at No. 5 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.
