Maren Morris’ Western ‘Rich’ Video Puts Husband Ryan Hurd at Her Mercy
Maren Morris transports to the Wild West in her throwback "Rich" video. The three-minute mini movie was directed by TK McKamy, and in it, the country star is a bounty hunter.
Her bounty? Ryan "Buffalo" Hurd.
In "Rich," Morris is on a stakeout in the woods, and she has big plans to capture Hurd from two men. She walks up to the campground, innocently asking for a light for her cigarette before revealing that she has dynamite in her hand. When the guys run for cover, she finds Hurd fast asleep and captures him.
As she sings her hit song — a co-write with Jessie Jo Dillon and Laura Veltz — she rides into town on her horse, Hurd dragging behind on a rope. She turns him in to the sheriff and collects $500, which she uses to splurge on some fancy evening wear.
Wait for the twist at the end — it comes when Morris is relaxing in a bubbly tub and a familiar face walks by.
Filmed in Tucson, Arizona, the "Rich" video also stars members of Morris' band and management team, plus her new husband. It's the final single from Morris' major-label debut, Hero, following the No. 1 hit "I Could Use a Love Song," plus "80s Mercedes" and "My Church."
“‘Rich’ feels like the perfect, confidant, laugh-the-B.S.-off-with-your-friends kind of song to go into Spring with. More importantly, ‘Rich’ is the first time we’ve really let fans pick the single, so it was a no brainer to make it my final single from Hero,” the Texas native said when she released it as a single.
Morris is part of the Elton John: I’m Still Standing – A Grammy Salute on Tuesday evening (April 10), on which she will perform John’s "Mona Lisas And Mad Hatters" at 9PM Eastern on CBS. She's also a performer at the 2018 ACM Awards on April 15.
