Platinum-selling entertainer Chase Rice performed on Good Morning America’s “Strahan & Sara” on Tuesday, February 26, with the television debut of massive hit “Eyes On You,” described by People as “addictive” and Billboard as “the latest sign for Rice that things are working.” In addition to the viral sensation which has now been streamed more than 120 million times, Rice also sat in as the house band for the full show, providing music throughout the hour. Watch his full performance of “Eyes On You” below.
“‘Eyes On You’ is about living in the moment, taking it all in, and since releasing it we’ve relived these moments of fans singing it back to us night-after-night. It’s wild and an incredible thing to witness when a song transcends its original meaning and people adopt it as their own,” shares the man ESPN characterises as “a rarity.” “This is their song — your song, and my eyes are on you.”
While speaking with hosts Michael Strahan and Sara Haines before his performance, Rice pointed out a group of Long Island volunteer firefighters in the audience. Invited as his guests, the first responders were on hand in celebration of Rice’s recently announced partnership with Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Fire to raise funds and awareness for the National Volunteer Fire Council, which supports and advocates for the 70% of firefighters who volunteer their time to keep us safe.
In addition to his Top 15-and-climbing single, “Eyes On You,” Rice also performed Platinum-certified Top 5 hits “Ready Set Roll” and “Gonna Wanna Tonight” as well as “Do It Like This” off his No. 1 debut album Ignite the Night, plus current album cuts “Three Chords & The Truth” and “On Tonight,” a re-imagined version of which will appear alongside three other deluxe tracks on Lambs & Lions (Worldwide Deluxe), available worldwide as the title implies this Friday, March 1.
