An artist who not only “knows his audience” (USA Today) but also lives, breathes and works right alongside them, Chase Rice is taking the rallying message of his new single “Everybody We Know Does” to heart and hitting the road this fall to play new music for fans right in their home towns. Rice, who has headlined four tours and opened for country superstars Kenny Chesney and Dierks Bentley, decided to route his upcoming Everybody We Know Does Tour directly to those who have grown with him and supported him since he was playing dive bars and fields, selecting a number of unconventional tour markets that are home to some of his most rabid fans so he can bring the music to them. The Everybody We Know Does Tour will launch in September, with the first round of dates announced today and more to follow in the coming weeks.
Written by Jeremy Bussey and Travis Denning and set to impact country radio on Monday, July 18, Rice’s new single has already piqued the ears of fans and critics alike, with Taste of Country calling it “a country-rock anthem that grabs you with guitars and keeps you with a unifying message” that has “the potential to be a career song for Chase Rice.”
Fans rallied around “Everybody We Know Does” en force on social media after the song’s June 24 release, with @dabest_11 sharing,
“@ChaseRiceMusic This is the most excited I’ve been in a while for a single & forth coming [sic] album. Sounds like the original Chase Rice. #EWKD” and @jennyyernstt declaring, “#EverybodyWeKnowDoes is the new small town country anthem @ChaseRiceMusic #ewkd #onrepeat.”
“When I first heard ‘Everybody We Know Does,’ I was immediately reminded of all the songs I listened to growing up, the songs my dad and I would listen to out on our farm and it just put me right back at home in those moments,” said Rice. “It’s a message that I needed to hear, and from the feedback we’ve been getting already, I think fans feel the same way. So that’s what this tour is about – finding those fans, whether they’ve been with me for a while or might be seeing my show for the first time, and experiencing music together in some of those places that mean the most to us.”
Rice will launch the Everybody We Know Does Tour in New Haven, Connecticut on September 8, with the first round of dates to be announced as follows:
Mother’s Day is approaching, and everyone has a mom they love. Watch Chase Rice, Carrie Underwood, Sam Hunt, Cassadee Pope, Eric Paslay, Brett Eldredge, Charles Kelley, Old Dominion, Kelsea Ballerini, Jennifer Nettles, Frankie Ballard and Michael Ray give their Mothers Day confessions to Taste of Country Nights’ Sam Alex.
Every time he takes the stage, Chase Rice has only one goal in mind: to leave every person in the room feeling something different than they did when they walked in. His dedication to reaching each and every fan has led the energetic entertainer over thousands of miles on the road, and for the past 17 days, all the way around the world. Starting with a sold-out debut show at The Republik in Hawaii, Rice made his way through four U.S. military bases in Japan performing for troops and completed his run at the sold-out CMC Rocks music festival in Australia, where his Ignite the Night album had just topped the ARIA Country Albums chart the week prior.
“It’s always been a dream of mine to tour overseas, and performing for our troops in Japan was a life-changing experience,” said Rice. “We are blessed to live in a country where we have the freedom to go out and entertain people every night, thanks to the sacrifice that our servicemen and women make to keep us safe. The fact that they knew our songs and sang along at every show is very humbling, and then having the No. 1 album in Australia on top of that – it just blows my mind. We will be back!”
Presented by Armed Forces Entertainment and Stars for Stripes, Rice performed with his full band at military bases in Atsugi, Yokosuka, Yokota and Okinawa. They continued from there to Queensland, Australia for the three-day CMC Rocks music festival, where Rice performed to sold-out crowds and sold the most albums of any artist at the festival’s on-site record store. His U.S. chart-topping album, Ignite the Night, officially debuted via Sony Music Entertainment Australia on February 25 and peaked at No. 1 on both the ARIA Country Albums Chart and the iTunes country albums Australia chart, with the hit single “Ready Set Roll” also securing the top spot on Australia’s iTunes country singles chart.
“I had a suspicion that Chase Rice was going to be the unexpected discovery artist at this year’s festival,” said Rob Potts, CMC Rocks festival promoter. “From topping the Aussie country chart a week before he arrived, to the crazy reaction his live performance slots generated, he was a huge hit at the event. Nothing accentuates this more than him topping CD sales at the massive on-site record store, taking out the No. 1 Seller position even though they sold out of his stock. Chase returns to the USA having made a serious impact with the Aussie fans.”
