Country star Chase Rice recently released his new single, “If I Were Rock & Roll.” The song is the first major single written independently by the multi-platinum entertainer.
Speaking about the inspiration behind writing the song, Rice said, “As I sat down to write this song at my dining room table, with nothing but a guitar and the line ‘If I Were Jesus,’ inspired by Bruce Springsteen’s ‘If I Was the Priest,’ I wanted to incorporate all of the things that have been such a huge influence in my life into the lyrics.”
“From Earnhardt to my military buddies, to Johnny Cash, to my grandpa… these are all people and memories who have shaped the man I am. It’s a very personal, real song to me and yet how the song ends, with the one that got away, makes it one that I think a lot of people will relate to,” he added.
“If I Were Rock & Roll,” produced by Jay Joyce, launches on country radio on October 18.
