Chase Rice Put out a new record recently titled “I Hate Cowboys & All Dogs Go To Hell”. After listening to the record, you can hear the most authentic version of Chase to date. This record is different from anything Chase has released in his career. Chase has talked about the record and said it is him. This is 100 percent his story and why it is so different.
It has been a hot minute since Chase has put out new music. He was busy finding his voice. He was with the guys from FGL for a while. FGL has a label called Tree Vibez Music. In the end, Chase decided to part ways with Tree Vibez Music. Once Chase got his groove back, he delivered a powerful record.
“I Hate Cowboys & All Dogs Go To Hell” touches on dark subjects. Chase brings the dark into the light with his new song “Bench Seat”. “Bench Seat” talks about the very ugly side of depression. This song is unique because you get the perspective of a friend going through the motions with you.
Everyone has felt disappointment from their parents when kids make mistakes. This is the feeling you get when you hear “Sorry Momma”. This song is a fun way to talk about the trouble kids get into. These are things such as drinking too much and bringing home the wrong girl. This song is a creative way to talk about making bad choices.
Music can bring people together and make people fall apart. This is exactly what is happening in the song “If I Were Rock & Roll”. This is the best break-up love song out there. The song talks about everything Chase could be. There is a line in the song that sticks out. “If I were rock and roll I’d be a middle finger to your face”. If that is not the most love-hate statement…. Ultimately, Chase talks about how he messed up love and this is his way of commutating this.
Overall, this is the best version of Chase to date and I am glad he was able to share his stories!
