NASHVILLE, Tenn. / LONDON, U.K. – (21 June, 2024) – One of Country music’s few Diamond-certified songwriters, Chase Rice continues to pave his unique path with today’s release of his autobiographical new song, “Go Down Singin’”, offering a raw and unfiltered glimpse into Rice’s journey ahead of his forthcoming independent album. Listen HERE.

“I’ll spare y’all the details, but a few months ago I decided to leave my record deal and do this thing on my own,” Rice shared with fans“I appreciate the love and songs Broken Bow and I did together. We had a lot of fun, and had two number ones. I made friends and met people that will always be a positive influence in my life. But now it’s time for me to ride this crazy rollercoaster we call the music industry by myself… Guess now it’s on me, if I go down at least I go down singin’.”

Written by Rice together with Blake Pendergrass during a trip back to his roots in North Carolina, “Go Down Singin’” encapsulates the highs and lows of his career, from the grind of Music Row to the decision to bet on himself with this project. Conveying a sense of resilience and determination, the musical manifesto reflects on that journey with a fighting spirit from the man Sports Illustrated celebrates for keeping “his head down, eyes up as he figured out who he is and navigated his wild ride to redemption.”

        Took a couple blows on Broadway

        ’Cause I heard that’s what you do

        Left blood and sweat and tears up and down 16th avenue

        Between the “Son you just ain’t got it”s

        And the barely making rent

        I just smiled and took it on the chin

“Go Down Singin’” joins “Fireside” in previewing Rice’s forthcoming independent release, the follow-up to his critically acclaimed I Hate Cowboys & All Dogs Go To Hell album, celebrated by Billboard as “one of 2023’s most unexpected artistic pivots” and as one of the best albums of the year across all genres.

In addition to crafting new music, Rice is also currently on tour with Dierks Bentley, visiting arenas and amphitheaters nationwide through September, in addition to prominent sets at major festivals including Summerfest, Windy City Smokeout and more.

“Go Down Singin’” Lyrics Available HERE 

With more than 2.6 million albums sold and over 2.8 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 releases “Fireside” and “Go Down Singin’” 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 American West. 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 is currently serving as direct support on Dierks Bentley’s Gravel & Gold Tour.
