iHeartRadio Country Artist Of The Year Thomas Rhett has teamed up with Grammy winner Maren Morris on a brand new single, “Craving You.” Co-written by One Direction producer Julian Bunetta and Nashville singer-songwriter Dave Barnes, “Craving You” is the first taste of Rhett’s third studio album. This will follow Tangled Up, Rhett’s 18-song project that earned him four #1 singles and brought the dynamic singer into a new level of country stardom, making him one of country music’s top artists of today & earning him his first headlining tour.“Craving You” marries pop and country with upbeat tempos and powerful lyrics. Morris proves to be the ideal partner, complementing the melody with her flawless harmonies and thriving in the song’s 80’s-style vibe. The song beams with emotion as Rhett sings about longing for someone like a drug and craving them constantly, unable to get enough of them. Rhett sings in the chorus: “You’re like that cigarette, that shot of hundred proof / No matter how much I get, I’m always craving / That feeling when we kiss, the way your body moves / No matter how much I get, I’m always craving you.
2017 already proves to be a monumental year for Rhett, as he kicked off his Home Team World Tour in late February with up-and-comers Kelsea Ballerini, Russell Dickerson and Ryan Hurd along for the ride. Rhett also announced that he and his wife Lauren Akins are not only adopting a child, but expecting as well.
Rhett and Morris will be performing “Craving You” at The Academy of Country Music Awards, airing live on CBS this Sunday 4/2 at 8:00 p.m./ET. Download “Craving You” on Apple Music and see all the dates for Rhett’s Home Team Tour here.
