After announcing earlier this week that he will be hitting the road as a headliner this fall on the JD and Jesus Tour 2015, Columbia Nashville recording artist Chase Rice is releasing the first round of dates for the tour today, July 24. Major stops will include Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Pittsburgh and New York City, with more markets and on-sale information to be announced in the coming weeks.
For his third headlining tour, Rice tapped raucous Nashville trio The Cadillac Three to join as a special guest on select shows. He sold out multiple venues on his 2014 Ignite The Night Tour and led Live Nation’s Ones To Watch: Ready Set Roll Tour in 2013 before his now-Platinum Top 5 single, “Ready Set Roll,” had even hit the mainstream airwaves. Rice’s live show has been hailed as “both never-ending and refreshing” (The Trinity Voice) and critics say he “commands a performance with such force and zeal, that he will have you hooked from the time you walk in the doors to the time you leave” (AXS.com). Having spent the summer taking notes from his musical hero and tourmate Kenny Chesney on The Big Revival Tour, Rice is poised to hit the road this fall with more energy and passion than ever before.
