Chase Rice is known for the single "Ready Set Roll" and for co-writing Florida Georgia Line's, "Cruise", which topped the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. On January 29, 2014, the official "Ready Set Roll" music video premiered exclusively on CMT. The next day, the video went worldwide on VEVO.
Rice was born in Florida and raised on a farm in Asheville, North Carolina. He attended AC Reynolds High School and was a linebacker on the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's football team. He is also known for being a cast member on Survivor Nicaragua. Chase says that although this experience didn't help him with his music career, it was an important life event that was more valuable than money and put his life into perspective.
Sam Hunt will open the show for Rice. Sam co-wrote Kenny Chesney's 2012 single "Come On Over", for which he received an award from ASCAP, as well as Keith Urban's, "Cop Car" and Billy Currington's, "We Are Tonight".
Sam was a college football player and later worked as a free agent for the Kansas City Chiefs before be became a singer-songwriter.
