NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Feb. 29, 2016) – Whether he’s on stage or in the studio, Chase Rice holds nothing back when it comes to performing and the legion of fans that shows up night after night to sing every word back to him on tour reflects the passion Rice inspires through his music. His new single, “Whisper,” is no exception having already racked up more than one million streams on Spotify ahead of today’s impact date at country radio. With “a big, bass-heavy chorus that dominates the radio” (Taste of Country), “Whisper” is the first release from Rice’s forthcoming 2016 album and serves as what he calls the “bridge” between his last chart-topping album, Ignite the Night, and the new music.
