Chase Rice Follows Number One Hit With Intimate Concert Series

Fresh off his second Number One as an artist — the two-week chart topper “Drinkin’ Beer. Talkin’ God. Amen. (feat. Florida Georgia Line)” — country star Chase Rice is headed to a barstool near you.

The hit maker has signed on to become the latest big artist to do some super-small shows, as part of Bud Light Seltzer Sessions: Your Flavor Your Show.

Beginning September 8 in Columbus, Ohio, Rice’s Bud Light Seltzer Sessions tour will put the amphitheater-rocking star on tiny, intimate stages around the country, and give fans a performance they wouldn’t normally get. At this point in his career, Rice is usually backed by a full band and playing to crowds in the thousands, but says he’s looking forward to a change of pace. There are still benefits to a small crowd, he admits.

“We’re bringing the energy of our full live show back to some of our favorite small stages,” shares Rice. “We’ve been dreaming this up for a long time and the timing is perfect because now we get to play some new music for y’all when we play these small rooms!”

Venues will include restaurants like Bristol Republic in Columbus, classic honky tonks like Carol’s Pub in Chicago and bars like Fifth Avenue Royal Oak in Detroit. Fans can enter for a chance to attend the win-your-way-in shows at, with even more chances to win via country radio stations in each market and on Rice’s social channels. And according to him, each show will be like going back to his roots.

“When I first started playing with just me and a guitar, it was sitting on barstools in venues like these,” Rice explains. “There’s something really special about stripping it back to how these songs were written, to how I got started. No show will be the same as we’re making it up as we go, but that’s what I love: hearing y’all yell songs from the crowd and us singing them together.”
