Chase Rice is releasing his latest single today, Friday (October 8th) called “If I Were Rock & Roll.” Chase wrote the song solo during quarantine, and it’s the first new music off his upcoming album called Intertwined, which will be released on November 5th.
Chase said, “The night I wrote this song, I decided to take a break from social media, so instead of aimlessly scrolling like most nights, I put Bruce Springsteen’s Letter to You documentary on my living room TV. His song ‘If I Was the Priest’ stood out to me and got me thinking about my own relationship with Jesus and all of the things I love in life; Country music, NASCAR, my friends and family. I picked up a guitar and wrote ‘If I Were Rock & Roll’ alone in that moment. No track and no cowriters meant I had no choice to focus on the lyrics and lean into what is real to me.”
“If I Were Rock & Roll” is the followup to Chase’s latest chart-topping hit, “Drinkin’ Beer. Talkin’ God. Amen.,” featuring Florida Georgia Line. You can download If I Were Rock & Roll at Apple Music and Spotify here.
