Chase Rice Releases Video Featuring Chris LeDoux's Son
Chase Rice has released a video for the album cut "This Cowboy's Hat," on his recently-released Lambs & Lions (Worldwide Deluxe) project. It was originally recorded by the late Chris LeDoux. Chase's version features a guest appearance by Chris' son, Ned LeDoux.
Chase told Cowboys & Indians magazine, "That was my childhood . . . Garth Brooks and Chris LeDoux. And for me to be able to record that song with his son and with one of the guys from Western Underground playing on the song . . . that’s insane. If I was going to do it, I wasn't going to screw it up. We had to do it right and I think we nailed it."
The video features clips of Chase and Ned recording their version of the song as well as scenes from Colorado's Greeley Stampede -- the only time they've played the song together live. The video concludes with historic footage of the hall of fame rodeo champion turned country singer/songwriter himself, as well as a tribute to Chase's late father who fostered his love for both rodeo culture and country music.
Chase added, "The original live version of 'This Cowboy’s Hat' was with Chris on stage and it was just a live video of him singing it, and all the craziness that he does on stage. Ned and I got this show together, so we kind of wanted to give a little tip of the hat to his dad and how he did it originally, with a live music video. We actually added in some of the original video as well. So it's just got a lot of old school with some of Chris actually in the video, and then it's got Ned and I playing together in Colorado, which was, you know, primetime cowboy country."
Chase sits at Number Six on the country charts with "Eyes On You," the most-streamed song of his career to date.
