One of Country music's few Diamond-certified songwriters, Chase Rice brought his critically acclaimed album I Hate Cowboys & All Dogs Go To Hell to the sold-out Ryman Auditorium last night, April 11, playing all 13 songs off the new project along with his decade-plus catalog of fan-favorites and chart-topping hits.

In addition to sharing an unreleased song, “Church,” the first he’s written since releasing the new project, Rice was joined onstage for album track “Oklahoma” by surprise guest Read Southall, who also appears alongside him on the recorded version of the song praised by fans as the best off the album.

He also invited a special guest onstage for the poignant “Bench Seat,” as Rice’s beloved dog Jack appeared to the delight of fans for his performance of the powerful song about the companionship a dog can offer, leaving all fans reflecting the love of their pet. The song's vivid imagery paints one of the best pictures in country music to date!

First light, a right, it's the best view in Tennessee

And then I'll say I saved your life

Oh, but I know that's a lie between

You, me and a bench seat

You saved mine

From the first to the last note, the sold-out show was a celebration of the album that fans and critics alike have celebrated as Rice’s best work to date. This album is clearly the most personal to date, and in a world that sometimes authentic creativity gets pushed aside, I Hate Cowboys & All Dogs Go To Hell shines through.
