Chase Rice Sends “Whisper” to Fans and Digital Retailers Today


Chase Ricestarted this week off with a nomination forACM New Male Vocalist of the Year, an honor well deserved after years of hitting every dive barwithin a 12-hour radius of his home state of North Carolina before making Nashville his home to professionally pursue his passion.

Since then, he has released Whisper,his new single available at digital retailers now,February 5(going for adds at country radioonMonday, Feb. 29).The kinetic, dubstep-infused tune is the first sampling from Rices highly anticipated new album, an as-yet-untitled follow-up to his chart-topping debutIgnite the Night, expected later this year viaColumbia Nashville/Dack Janiels Records.

Ignite the Nightwas great for us, and it opened a lot of doors both creatively and professionally, said Rice. This new album is still going to have some ofthosesongs, songs that make people want to get up and dance and party at a show, but it also takes fans on our journey with us and has a lot more depth musically because of what I see our fans craving online and at our shows.”

Having performed to sold out crowds on his own headlining tour night after night drawing 2,500 to 3,000 fans at each stop nationwide, Rice has not only lived more, but he’s listened more, too. “Personally, I believe my writing has evolved since we put out the last album and it’s been a hell of a ride so far, so this one will have a more mature sound to it. Whisper is an example of that, having some of those different production elements that push the music beyond where weve been before.

Rice re-teamed with Nashville hitmakers Chris DeStefano and Jon Nite to craft Whisper. The synergistic trio collaborated on several songs fromIgnite the Night, including fan-favorite 50 Shades of Crazy and Beach Town, with DeStefano also logging a writing credit on Rices Top 5 Platinum hit Ready Set Roll and Nite sharing ink on its follow-up Top 5 smash, Gonna Wanna Tonight. DeStefano also producedIgnite the Nightand is a co-producer on Whisper with Rice.
