Surprise the surprise....The wait is over for Chase Rice

Friday, January 24, 2020 – Chase Rice surprised fans with the release of a seven-song EP, "The Album Part I" today with Part II to follow in 2020.

"I chose to call this 'The Album' because it's the first thing I would encourage someone to listen to if they want to know who I am as an artist," said Rice. "My career has been such a rollercoaster journey, but it's all led to this moment and these songs. So much of what I've learned, so much of what I've fought through - it's all reflected in this music."

Rice had a big hit last year with "Eyes on You."

"'Eyes On You' and 'Lonely If You Are' were both huge for us at our live shows before they were even on the radio," said Rice. "We've recently started mixing in newer songs at our shows - sometimes within a day or two of writing them - and we can feel how passionately the fans respond. It's clear that they're eager for more new music, so we wanted to kick off the new year with this surprise!"

Songs are:
American Nights (Kevin Griffin, Martin Johnson; produced by Martin Johnson)
Lonely If You Are (Chase Rice, Lindsay Rimes, Hunter Phelps; produced by Chris DeStefano and Chase Rice)
Everywhere (Chase Rice, Zachary Kale, James McNair; produced by Zachary Kale)
Best Night Ever (Chase Rice, Chris DeStefano, Matt Jenkins; produced by Chris DeStefano)
Messy (Seth Ennis, Kylie Sackley; produced by Chris DeStefano)
In The Car (Chase Rice, Jesse Rice, Hunter Phelps, Mark Holman; produced by Chris DeStefano)
Forever To Go (Jordan Minton, Casey Brown, Geoffrey Warburton; produced by Casey Brown)

Rice will sing "Lonely If You Are" this Monday, Jan. 27 on "The Bachelor" on ABC at 8/7 central.

He is currently on the road in Europe for his The Pint of Anything Tour before joining Brantley Gilbert's Fire't Up Tour for some dates starting April 16 in Greenville, S.C.

CD review - The Album Part II Chase Rice has embraced Nashville's new business model of releasing music more frequently. Rice's EP "The Album Part II" will combine with the surprise seven-song January release of "Part I." Rice said, "The Album Part II only has four songs, so it's really easy for people to go check out all four songs. They're all very different." The issue with incrementally releasing music, especially in the EP format, is a lack of cohesion. ...
CD review - The Album, Pt. 1 Is there anybody in country music better prepared than Chase Rice to write their autobiography? In other walks of life, he's been a D1 college football player, a pit crew member of an elite NASCAR team and a runner-up on TV's "Survivor." Honorable mention should go to the fact he had a hand in writing Florida Georgia Line's "Cruise," a little ditty that spent close to a half-year at number one. In his day job as a fairly seasoned musical artist, Rice starts ...
CD review - Lambs & Lions As counterintuitive as it might seem, Chase Rice and the late George Michael have a lot in common. Both were their respective label's golden boy, and when each artist tried to do something different, they fell out of favor. In Rice's case, he sensed the demise of bro country and wanted to shift gears. Columbia Nashville preferred to have him stay the course. Rice said, "I was fed up with trying, whether that was trying to be something I'm not, trying to make music that people ...
