– Chase Rice will debut "I Hate Cowboys" this Friday on "Good Morning America."
The song is one of the two title tracks on Rice's forthcoming album, "I Hate Cowboys & All Dogs Go To Hell," out Feb. 10.
"I Hate Cowboys" will also be available everywhere that day along with an official music video that tributes the history of cowboy culture. Written by Rice alongside HARDY, Ross Copperman and Old Dominion's Brad Tursi, the song and corresponding visuals serve as a tongue-in-cheek ode to how cool cowboys are.
"When you listen to the song you of course get that I don't actually hate cowboys. I'm really fortunate to call several of them great friends," said Rice. "But damn, doesn't it make you crazy when Mr. Steal Your Girl kicks open the door — with that hat and those Wranglers, and he can two-step better than you, talk cooler than you? 'I Hate Cowboys' is an ode to the fact that just like Taylor Sheridan writes in Yellowstone, if it were easier everyone would cowboy...hell, I wish I could."
The disc contains 13 tracks, including three solo writes Rice. The project honors his late father, Daniel Rice, with its cover art.

1. Walk That Easy (Chase Rice, William Reames, Barton Davies, Jonathan Sherwood, Oscar Charles)
