After trying out seduction on a couple of singles – “Gonna Wanna Tonight” and “Whisper” – Chase Rice returned to more general lifestyle affirmation on his latest track: “Not everybody likes a Friday night covered in dust/ But everybody we know does.” He also cranked up the volume and the guitar distortion, aiming for the space in the radio playlist next to Jason Aldean‘s “Lights Come On.”
“These last few years have been a whirlwind, being out on the road building our live show and working on new music for the next record,” Rice said in a statement. “I’ve lived a lot and had some incredible experiences and opportunities, but I’ve also been spending some time out at my farm, just unplugging for a bit and reflecting on what music means to me and what it means to all of the people who have shown up and supported me over the years.”
“That’s why this song, ‘Everybody We Know Does,’ is really special to me,” he continued. “We went in and recorded it with some of Nashville’s top studio musicians, so it’s our sound and our lives reflected in this song. It’s who we are, and that’s ultimately what brings us all together.”
Rice’s last single, “Whisper,” failed to crack the top 50 on the Country Airplay chart, which puts additional pressure on “Everybody We Know Does.” The song was written by Jeremy Bussey and Travis Denning. Listen below.
