Payin’ tribute to The Chief.
Chase Rice shared another glimpse of new music yesterday, posting a video of his latest unreleased song, “Church.” The song is written in admiration of Eric Church and the influence he had on a young Chase Rice, before either of their careers had fully taken off.
While he’s been vocal about playing the unreleased track live at recent shows, he hasn’t shared much else about it until now. The “Bench Seat” artist absolutely killed it with the authentic, acoustic-filled rendition he posted on Instagram.
“Been playin this live, tellin the story about the night that changed my life forever. Made me realize what this guy did that night was what I was supposed to do. Thank you @ericchurch”
“Church” depicts the first night Chase Rice saw Eric Church live, after attending his show with a girl in his early twenties. Rice describes the impact that the fellow North Carolinian had on him from the start, stating how Church’s music made him feel like himself again for the first time in months. The song also features a nod to several of Church’s early-on hits, including “Young And Wild,” “Those I’ve Loved” and “Pledge Allegiance To The Hag.”
Chase Rice proved he’s entered a new era of his career with his latest album “I Hate Cowboys & All Dogs Go To Hell,” which dropped earlier this year. “Church” serves as another perfect example of the evolution and growth of Chase Rice and his music.
