Last month Chase Rice released a new single, “Everybody We Know Does,” which is currently No. 50 on Billboard‘s Country Airplay chart. Written by Jeremy Bussey and Travis Denning, the new tune is a positive, blue-collar country anthem that Chase feels reflects his upbringing and current lifestyle.
“I got the song from a publisher and took it out to my farm and drove around in my truck [to listen to it]—and I don’t get many songs sent to me because I write most of my songs—and I was like, ‘Man, I wouldn’t have written this any different. It’s my life like right now,’” says Chase to Nash Country Daily. “I’ve got a farm in Tennessee and I was just thinking to myself, ‘This is my life and I couldn’t have written it any better.’ We took the cover picture right at my farm of me sitting in the back of my truck. We didn’t’ put anything in the truck [bed]. I wanted everything about the song to be real. There’s a chainsaw in the back and bunch of cans back there. I just wanted 100 percent of that song to be real because it is definitely my life right now. The song’s second verse, that to me is the kind of people I grew up around. That’s the kind of person I learned to be. And that to me, that’s depth right there.”
Chase released a new video for “Everybody We Know Does” today (Sept. 23), and it features him and some of his friends and family getting after it on his farm outside of Music City. If you love muddin’, blowing up watermelons, bonfires and booze, this video is right up your alley.
