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..

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: No matter what you call it, The Cadillac Three are really good
On the face of it, Kelby Ray's omnipotent pedal steel lines weaving in and out of The Cadillac Three's songs would make you willing to get the family farm the trio was a country music band.
In reality, that would be stretching the already hyper-elastic boundaries of what constitutes country these days. Yes, there was a country vibe from the... »»»
Concert Review: Alaina enjoys the difference
Why was this night different from most other nights for Lauren Alaina? For starters, instead of opening in arenas for Blake Shelton, which she's been doing lately, she headlined her own show at a very small, intimate club.
That afforded her the chance to stretch out musically and otherwise in a warm, engaging 70-minute set from the country pop singer.... »»»
