Rice puts Eyes on You for tour
Wednesday, October 3, 2018
– Chase Rice is launching the Eyes On You Tour starting Nov. 2 in Eugene, Ore.
"Our fans have been singing 'Eyes On You' back to us at the top of their lungs all summer long," said Rice. "They made it a hit at our live shows before it even got to radio, so it's only right that we name this the Eyes On You Tour and bring our show back to the people who have been so supportive all along." The song is a single for Rice.
"Even if people don't want to admit it, we all love 'love.' When you find that perfect relationship, it becomes less important what you're doing and more about that partner you're doing it with," said Rice of the song. "'Eyes On You' has a fun, singalong melody to it, but when you listen to the lyrics you realize it's talking about that true love we all hope for."
Rice is currently on the Luke Bryan Farm Tour 2018 before going overseas for a headlining U.K. run..

Nov. 2 - McDonald Theater, Eugene, Ore.

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 »»»
Ignite the Night
Chase Rice lets listeners know exactly what to expect on his debut right from the opening sounds of first single and opener, the hit "Ready Set Roll." Electronic beats and a robotic voice start off a bro country track with plenty of hip hop flourishes and simplistic lyrics like "ready set let's ride, get your little fine ass on the step, shimmy up inside." Rice was a co-writer on Florida Georgia Line's smash hit "Cruise," which is also a fine indicator of »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Lane, Ramsey, Barrett cover their bases
Covers played a far more prominent role than usual at a country show. And instead of what is typically the least course of resistance in recent years of country artists succumbing to their renditions of a rock hit, Chris Lane, Mason Ramsey and Gabby Barrett played songs that actually were country hits.
Interestingly, the youngest of the bunch, Ramsey,... »»»
