With his highly-anticipated new studio album Ignite the Night hitting shelves nationwide Tuesday, August 19, country star Chase Rice is getting ready to light up New York City with a celebratory live show the night prior, August 18, at the Bowery Ballroom.

Proceeds from the show will benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s “Light The Night” fundraising campaign, with which Rice recently got involved in honor of his late father, whose birthday also coincides with the album’s release date.

“After hearing about all the great work LLS does for blood cancer research and seeing what an impact their ‘Light The Night’ walks have on families and communities who are struggling with the disease, I knew I wanted to get involved,” said Rice. “My dad had melanoma and he passed away of a heart attack, so I understand what families go through and anything I can do to raise awareness and help other people stay healthy, I’ll do.”

A special iTunes “Party Edition” of Ignite the Night will also be available Aug. 19 and will include three bonus tracks.
