Multi ACM-Nominees Set To Make Television Debut of New Single This Sunday at the 52nd ACM Awards

GQ Shares First Listen Of “Craving You”
TN – Mar. 31, 2017 – To break the rules, you have to first master the
guidebook – and few in Country music are both simultaneously paving new
ground while paying tribute to the past like mutli-PLATINUM artist
Thomas Rhett. He has shaped his own unique corner of the genre that is
as fearless as it is furiously fun, and now the ACM-nominee has
partnered up with GRAMMY award-winner Maren Morris for his dynamic new
single, “Craving You.” The lead track from his upcoming third studio
album that dips into the eighties with an infectious groove and twangy
backbone that proves Thomas Rhett doesn’t see boundaries – and if he
does, he just dances right over them. “Craving You” premieres today on GQ
, impacts Country radio and is now available for purchase.

so incredibly proud of ‘Craving You.’ It transports me right back to
the eighties,” says Thomas Rhett. “There’s that Phil Collins-sounding
drum, the stuttered bass notes. I’m a huge lover of the music from that
genre and I think this song taps right into that vibe. And my fans know
that I thrive on being unpredictable.”

the day “Craving You” was composed, Thomas Rhett was scheduled to be at
the co-writing session with “Craving You” co-writers Julian Bunetta and
Dave Barnes – but he ended up sick and unable to attend. Somehow, the
song created that afternoon perfectly captured the sonic palate he was
looking for, so much so that it almost felt like kismet. “Craving You”
is sensual and a little dangerous – it’s about wanting to be right back
in the arms of a lover, even if you’ve only been apart for a minute.  To
capture that chemistry, he recruited the electric Morris, with
thrilling and pristine results. Thomas Rhett and Morris both bend the
genre of country music in unique, groundbreaking ways, and their
combination is undeniable. 
song is written for a reason, but it felt like this one was meant for
me.” Added Thomas Rhett. “I remember texting Maren and asking if she
would sing on the song. She came over and just blew me away. I was
amazed at how much her voice fit the song. Having a woman on the song
made it twice as craving – a guy and a girl, obsessed with each other. I
think that’s relatable.”

You” follows Thomas Rhett’s PLATINUM certified sophomore album TANGLED
UP DELUXE (The Valory Music Co.), which includes his recent seventh
career No. One and fastest rising single of his career, “Star Of The
Show,”  along with the 3X PLATINUM six-week chart-topping smash “Die A
Happy Man.” While surprising fans with a taste of new music throughout
sold-out stops on his 2017 HOME TEAM TOUR, he continues to usher in
capacity crowds with “one of the best Country concerts of the year” (Peoria Journal Star). For more information about new music and for a full list of upcoming tour dates, visit
