CD reviews for Chase Rice

The Album Part II 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. »»»
The Album, Pt. 1 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 »»»

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 »»»
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: The Lil Smokies provide the perfect antidote – On a night when the world to be falling further apart thanks to coronavirus (this would be the night the NBA postponed the season), there stood The Lil Smokies to at least in some small measure save the day.

Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music – John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia. But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
