Rice to perform on ABC’s Good Morning America on March 23 before the tour kicks off in Nashville on March 26
NASHVILLE Tenn. (March 10 2015) – Chase Rice's steadfast career is primed for a week his fans will never forget. First Rice will join ABC’s Good Morning America on Monday March 23 to perform his second single "Gonna Wanna Tonight" from his chart-topping mainstream debut album Ignite The Night. Then Rice will keep the momentum going as he joins Kenny Chesney's The Big Revival Tour just days later. The highly anticipated tour launches with two sold-out nights March 26 and 27 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
“There are only a few entertainers that continuously set the bar both musically and on stage and Kenny has always been that guy for me. The fact that we’re going out on tour with him this year is still surreal. It's a huge opportunity not only to share the same stage but also play to a lot of people who may not have seen me live before who wonder what I'm all about. Well now I get to show them" said Rice. “Adding a performance on Good Morning America on top of that in the same week just blows my mind. I’m bringing everything I’ve got.”
With only his first hit on the radio at the time (the Platinum-certified Top 5 smash "Ready Set Roll") Rice sold out nearly every stop on his own Ignite The Night Tour last year and he has been noted for bringing intensity that is “both never-ending and refreshing” (The Trinity Voice) to his live show.
