NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (10 May, 2024) – Following the critically acclaimed release of 2023’s I Hate Cowboys & All Dogs Go To Hell, Chase Rice unveils the start of his next musical chapter with today’s independent release of guitar-driven anthem ‘Fireside‘. Available to listen to here.

“This is just the very beginning of my next full album, which to me is another level up from the Cowboys record,” Rice shared with fans of the new song, as he continues to pursue vulnerability and authenticity in his songwriting. “The theme continues with some pictures of my childhood and not only what got me here today, but who did,” he added, pointing to the single art paying tribute to the love story of his own parents with his mom, Connie, and late father, Dan, pictured at Road Atlanta in the mid-1970s.

Penned by Rice alongside Jonathan Sherwood, Jackson Dean and producer Oscar Charles, ‘Fireside’ spotlights the fiery passion of romance, with the chorus erupting in a rallying cry to “burn with me.”

While Rice has always excelled at creating music that thrills his sold-out live audiences, ‘Fireside’ joins I Hate Cowboys & All Dogs Go To Hell in doing so at an elevated level, with Billboard noting, “the music is still propulsive with arena-ready moments, but is laced with deeper, more introspective themes” and Forbes declaring, “his latest album shows a deeper, more reflective Chase Rice than we’ve seen in the past… a full-circle, career defining journey for Rice, as both a singer and a songwriter.”

Rice will perform ‘Fireside’ live for the first time this Tuesday, May 14 as he returns to the Grand Ole Opry stage. He also joins Dierks Bentley’s Gravel & Gold Tour visiting arenas and amphitheaters nationwide from June through September in addition to prominent sets at major festivals including Tailgate N’ Tallboys, Summerfest, Windy City Smokeout and more.

With more than 2.6 million albums sold and over 2.7 billion total streams, plus a legion of passionate fans at his high-energy concerts across the globe, Chase Rice has established himself as a powerful force in Nashville and beyond. With new release “Fireside” available everywhere now as the follow-up to critically acclaimed album I Hate Cowboys & All Dogs Go To Hell, Rice’s sound continues to evolve to reflect the realities of his life; from emotional reckoning to an admiration of the Western way of life. The recent album, including standout tracks “Oklahoma” and “Bench Seat,” serves as a follow up to his three-part project, The Album, which featured his latest Platinum-certified No. 1 hit, “Drinkin’ Beer. Talkin’ God. Amen.” and the Platinum-certified Top 10 hit “Lonely If You Are.”

This is the same gravelly-voiced Chase Rice fans first fell in love with years ago – but better, freer; unbeholden and uninhibited. The new music builds upon the success of his sophomore album, Lambs & Lions, which featured the 3x Platinum, two-week chart topper “Eyes On You” – Rice’s first No. 1 as an artist and the most-streamed song of his career. Lambs & Lions followed Platinum-certified Ignite the Night, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums and No. 3 on the all-genre chart, producing a pair of Top 5 hits; Platinum-certified “Gonna Wanna Tonight” and Double Platinum “Ready Set Roll.” In addition to guesting on sold-out stadium shows with Kenny Chesney and Garth Brooks, Rice consistently sells out venues on his own headlining tours, including the recent Get Western Tour in support of his new music, and he will join Dierks Bentley’s Gravel & Gold Tour this summer.
