About Chase Rice
Not many country
music artists can claim the rise in reality television game shows as a launching point for their career, but Chase Rice got
it right during his time as a cast member of Survivor while living in a remote area of Nicaragua. While the music career did
not take off while he was in Nicaragua, it was the reunion show on which Chase Rice played his song "Buzz Back," that helped
to initiate a fan following. It was not long after the airing of the reunion that Chase Rice was on his way. In March 2011,
Chase Rice released an EP entitled Country as Me that included six of his tracks. It included the single, "Buzz Back," that
he had performed on the Survivor reunion. Chase Rice did not stop with the EP, the following year he was prepared to release
his debut album called Dirt Road Communion. It did quite well for a budding country music star, having not already put ample
time playing the hole-in-the-wall honky tonks like country stars in the early days. Dirt Road Communion debuted at number
48 on the Billboard Country Albums chart. It was also recognized as the 6 most downloaded album on iTunes the first week it
After the success with his EP and debut album hitting the charts, Chase Rice singed to Creative Artists
Agency later that year. In addition to his own work, he provided assistance in writing the song "Cruise" with another country
music group, Florid Georgia Line. The song, which was co-written by Florida Georgia Line and Chase Rice, topped the Billboard
Hot Country Songs chart. Instead of jumping to his sophomore album, Chase Rice released another EP entitled Read Set Roll.

songs: "Party Up," "Country in Ya" and a self-titled track. It also featured Colt Ford.
Chase Rice's Breakthrough
It is evident that the initial breakthrough for Chase Rice was when he was casted to appear on the hit television
show Survivor: Nicaragua. At the time, he had not yet come out to the public as a budding country music star. He later made
up for not making use of his air time during the show by playing one of his songs at the time of the show's reunion. The playing
of "Buzz Back" on the reunion show helped to launch his musical career. He put it out there that he wanted to be a country
music star and the world made it happen with his talent and drive leading the way. Following the EP Country as Me, Chase Rice
released his full-length album Dirt Road Communion that had an incredibly profitable run. Chase Rice has even explored music
videos, having recently debuted a video for the song "Ready Set Roll" on Country Music Television Network and VEVO. The music
videos helped to launch him into a larger fan base than he had known previously. Collaborating with other artists has also
been an important part of growing his music career. The song "Cruise" that was co-written with the country band Florida Georgia
Line grabbed the attention of the well-known hip hop performer Nelly. That is, Nelly remixed the track and took it to the
number five on the pop charts. It then sold over 5 million copies, helping fans to see how talented this former Survivor star
is. He his primed and ready to continuing down his break out path to become an international name.
An interesting bit of trivia about Chase Rice is that he was once the starting linebacker at the University
of North Carolina. Like his role on Survivor: Nicaragua, it was unknown to everyone that there was an aspiring country music
star inside his linebacker exterior. His career as a linebacker ended during his third year when he sustained an injury. Following
this departure, Chase Rice joined a NASCAR pit crew. It seems he has successfully transitioned from all of these different
life paths to now be a household name in the United States. Fans are certain that there is much more to expect from this rising
