Rice goes Way Down Yonder on tour

Monday, December 12, 2022 – Chase Rice will launch the Way Down Yonder Tour.

The tour is in the wake of Rice's announcement that he will release a new album, "I Hate Cowboys & All Dogs Go To Hell," on Feb. 23, 2023.

Kicking off March 3 in Laughlin, Nev., the headlining run spans 23 dates across the U.S. including Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Boston's House of Blues and Athens, Ga.'s' Georgia Theatre, concluding April 29 in Rice's birthplace of Daytona, Fla.

Joining as special guests across varying dates are Avery Anna, Tyler Braden, Ashland Craft, Dalton Dover, Kameron Marlowe, Read Southall Band and Conner Smith.

The tour earns its name from Rice's latest release off the forthcoming album, outlaw anthem "Way Down Yonder." Written by Rice with Hunter Phelps, John Byron, Blake Pendergrass and Corey Crowder during a writing retreat in Florida that also produced recent release "Key West & Colorado," the song paints a vivid picture of hardworking characters living beyond the confines of the law:
Way down yonder where the outlaws wander
You can feel that thunder in your bones
Rippin' hot rod runners under moonlight cover
Just some back glass gunners on the road
Where you buy your bud with your moonshine money
Make your love where the bees make honey
When the cut's where you're born and raised
Man it's in your blood, we were born this way down yonder

"Way Down Yonder" was recorded along with the rest of the forthcoming album during a two-week period at Rice's farm outside Nashville, with producer Oscar Charles using a makeshift recording environment.

CD reviews for Chase Rice

Inspiration comes in many forms. Chase Rice found it through an existential crisis. As an integral part of the bro country movement, his catalog has plenty of beer, trucks and pretty girls to go around. After having stratospheric success with a co-write on the massive Florida Georgia hit "Cruise," he found that he had some things to say outside of the gloss and cliche of bro country. Enter his late father's love, who is on the cover as a tribute, a loyal canine companion and a bevy ...
CD review - The Album If you think you Chase Rice's "The Album" sounds familiar, that's because it was released earlier as two EPs. Aptly titled "The Album Part 1 and Part 2," he marries those 11 songs with three new songs and a collaboration with Florida Georgia Line. He showcases his songwriting skills with credits on nine tracks. The sum total feels like it was borne from the contemporary country playbook. Young love is in the air on unsubtly titled numbers like" Bedroom" ...
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. ...
