Rice Celebrates Sold-Out Ryman Auditorium Debut;
Set to Join Kane Brown on NBA Arena “Blessed & Free Tour”
Multi-Platinum entertainer Chase Rice delivers the timely message of his current Top 20-and-climbing single “Drinkin’ Beer. Talkin’ God. Amen.” to national audiences this Monday, May 17, as he joins ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
Performing from Tin Roof on Broadway, the home of Nashville’s iconic honky-tonks, Rice brings to life the song’s celebration of slowing down to enjoy meaningful conversation with friends while spotlighting the hopeful resurgence of live music in the heart of Music City.
“I remember saying ‘sitting here, drinking beer and talking to God’ to a friend at the end of 2019, not even knowing it would turn into a song idea, because at that time I realized that I needed to slow down, refocus and be able to appreciate the calm as much as the chaos.” reflects Rice. “When we look back on this last year, one thing I’m most grateful for is the time at home, sitting around the fire with loved ones and reconnecting with what really matters in life. I can’t wait to bring the song that came out of that mindset to ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ from one of my favorite places in Nashville.”
The growing hit, which features Florida Georgia Line on the recorded version, follows recent Top 10 “Lonely If You Are” for Rice, as well as his Double-Platinum certified two-week chart topper “Eyes On You” and comes with the promise of new music on the horizon.
Rice, who will join Kane Brown on the NBA arena Blessed & Free Tour at the top of 2022, also recently made his debut at the famed Ryman Auditorium, performing to a sold-out limited capacity audience as well as a live stream audience watching from home.
“I grew up listening to country music. Never dreamed I’d be part of it, but last night I got to play the Ryman and it was one of the most special moments of my career,” shared Rice after the concert. “To play in a building with that much history of so many artists that paved the way for a guy like me couldn’t have been more of an honor.”
