Columbia Nashville singer continues to draw attention as he teases new music for fans
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (Feb. 1, 2016) – Chase Rice has plenty to celebrate today after learning that he’s up for New Male Vocalist of the Year at the 51st ACM Awards while sharing news of forthcoming new music with fans.
When the Academy of Country Music nominations were announced on CBS’
“CBS This Morning” earlier today, Rice–who has built his rabid
following from the ground up– had already planned to be in Las Vegas as
part of the three-day ACM Party For a Cause Festival, but now Rice has
even more of a reason to keep the party going through the Sunday, April 3
awards show broadcast from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
“There are a lot of great things happening for us right now, and I can’t
wait to party in Las Vegas,” Rice said. “I’m excited about our
nomination for New Male Vocalist of the Year and even more excited about
sharing new music with my fans later this week.”
Rice teased that new music last Friday when he posted a photo to
Instagram with the words “SHHH … One Week From Now” and the hashtags
#Whisper and #NewMusic 2/5. It’s the first new music from Rice since the
release of his chart-topping debut album Ignite the Night in
2014. That album delivered two Top 5 hits, “Ready Set Roll” and
“Gonna Wanna Tonight,” and established Rice as a vocalist, entertainer
and songwriter to contend with.
The artist who has been described as “a rarity” by ESPN, “convincing” by the New York Times and “clever” by the Associated Press just wrapped his third headlining tour, The JD and Jesus Tour,
last week after supporting Kenny Chesney’s stadium tour last summer and
is gearing up for a crazy year that includes the release of his
as-yet-untitled second Columbia Nashville/Dack Janiels album.
