New studio album sells more than 44,000 units in its first week; Late Night with Seth Meyers to re-air Rice's performance
August 28 on NBC NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Aug. 27, 2014) – Independent country music sensation Chase Rice continues to forge his own path as his Aug. 19 release Ignite the Night lands at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart with over 44,000 in first week album sales. Rice's own Dack Janiels Records marketed Ignite the Night and oversaw promotion efforts, enlisting the radio promotion team at Columbia Nashville to push his new music at country radio. The album’s lead single, “Ready Set Roll,” earned its Gold certification from the RIAA before it had entered the Top 20 at mainstream radio and was sitting at No. 13 upon the album's release.
"We've built things a little bit differently, starting with live shows and building up our fan base through touring," said Rice. “Now people are showing up night after night to sing these songs right along with me, and to do it the way we’ve done it and have the No. 1 country album in the nation this week is unbelievable. It's surreal.”
