Since signing a new record deal with Broken Bow Records in 2017, Chase Rice has been working hard to grow his fanbase here in the UK. He toured over here in December last year and he’s been back recently to perform as part of Country Music Week at Bush Hall in London. Rice’s latest album Lambs & Lions has taken his career on a new path, moving away from the party anthems of his previous album Ignite the Night.
Rising to fame as a contestant on US reality show Survivor in 2010, Rice has successfully made the transition to recording artist and he’s built himself a very fervent fanbase. In 2014 his third album (his first for a major label), Ignite the Night, topped the US Country Charts. It housed the hit singles Ready Set Roll, which was certified Platinum, and Gonna Wanna Tonight. In 2017 Rice left Columbia Records and signed to Broken Bow Records, the home of his latest album Lambs & Lions.
The album’s first single, Three Chords & the Truth, saw a stark change in direction for Rice and it was a teaser for a more stripped-down and personal record. Current single Eyes on You is climbing the charts around the globe and it looks like Rice is well on his way to building his international fanbase too. He’s also one of the co-writers of Florida Georgia Line’s monster 2012 hit Cruise.
Rice will return to the UK for C2C: Country to Country 2019. He’ll be opening the Main Stage on Friday 8th March 2019 on a line-up that includes Cam, Brett Eldredge and the mighty Keith Urban. It’s a big step forward for Rice in the UK and proves that the work he’s put into building a fanbase here is really paying off for him.
