Fresh off his two-week No. 1 “Eyes On You” that has accumulated more than 130 million streams, multi-Platinum entertainer Chase Rice is back at it with the first taste of new music. With excitement already percolating on acoustic versions posted to Rice’s social media among fans eager for more, he used his headlining slot at Ascend Amphitheater during his CMA Fest performance to announce what his followers have been waiting for: “Lonely If You Are” is now available on all digital retailers.
“‘Lonely If You Are’ starts out simply with just an acoustic guitar, which is a different sound for me than what people might be used to, but it also goes back to how I started in Nashville – when it was just me with a guitar writing songs,” explains Rice of the Chris DeStefano-produced song. “Lyrically, it’s telling this special girl that even though we might not officially be together right now, ‘go ahead – have a good time with your friends… but when that all fades away, give me a call. I’ll be there.’ I wrote this song with Lindsay Rimes and Hunter Phelps, and it’s been the front-runner to follow ‘Eyes On You’ since the day we wrote it, so I can’t wait for the fans to hear this one.”
