Chase Rice Announces Tour in Support of ‘Ignite the Night’
Chase Rice has announced a run of tour dates in support of his upcoming debut album.
The singer-songwriter will release ‘Ignite the Night‘ on Aug. 19. He is set to kick off his Ignite the Night Tour on Sept. 5 in Denver, Colo. The road trek will run through Dec. 20 before wrapping up in New York City.
While this is Rice’s first full-length album, he is not a new face to many fans. The first single from the album, ‘Ready Set Roll,’ has already been certified gold, and Rice recently previewed another track, ‘Gonna Wanna Tonight,’ that he says will likely be the second single.
Rice was already one of the biggest hitmakers in Nashville prior to launching his solo career. He co-wrote Florida Georgia Line‘s smash debut single, ‘Cruise,’ which has broken several long-standing chart records. Before that he competed on ‘Survivor: Nicaragua’ in 2010, placing second.
Old Dominion and singer-songwriter Michael Ray will join Rice as support acts for select dates on the tour. Rice is teaming up with Snagajob and its Hourly Gig contest to give aspiring musicians the chance to perform as his opening act at the tour’s kickoff show. The contest winner will be announced Aug. 29.
Rice is also offering one very lucky fan the chance to win a replica of his classic Chevy Silverado, valued at $20,000. Use the form below to enter to win.
The singer-songwriter will celebrate the release of ‘Ignite the Night’ with a special performance at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City on Aug. 18, to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s “Light the Night” fundraising campaign. Rice became involved with the society after the death of his father, whose birthday was the same date as the release of the album.
“After hearing about all the great work LLS does for blood cancer research and seeing what an impact their ‘Light the Night’ walks have on families and communities who are struggling with the disease, I knew I wanted to get involved,” Rice says. “My dad had melanoma, and he passed away of a heart attack, so I understand what families go through and anything I can do to raise awareness and help other people stay healthy, I’ll do.”
