Chase Rice Releases New Single, Gets Big Offer From Garth Brooks

Chase Rice took the opportunity to introduce his next single to fans while on stage during CMA Fest over the weekend. The song is called "Lonely If You Are," and it's available at all digital retailers.

Chase said, "‘Lonely If You Are’ starts out simply with just an acoustic guitar, which is a different sound for me than what people might be used to, but it also goes back to how I started in Nashville - when it was just me with a guitar writing songs. Lyrically, it's telling this special girl that even though we might not officially be together right now, ‘go ahead – have a good time with your friends . . . but when that all fades away, give me a call. I'll be there.’"

Also during CMA Fest, Chase, a self-proclaimed Garth Brooks superfan, surprised him live during an interview on Entertainment Tonight to serve as Nancy O’Dell’s co-host. Garth made the offer of a lifetime to Chase saying, "Let’s do a deal, okay? Let’s say if we ever did play Nissan Stadium, you want to open that show?"

Chase's latest single, "Eyes On You," recently topped the country charts becoming his first Number One as artist and songwriter.
