Listen to Chase Rice Radio on iHeartRadio

Chase Rice is excited to have his major label debut on the way.  The country newcomer says "words can't really express how grateful" he is to everyone who "came together" to make Ignite The Night possible. 

And for Chase, "everyone" includes his fans.  He says he's very appreciative of all their support, adding that he "wouldn't have a career without them." 

The singer also says the date chosen for the release makes an already special event "that much more meaningful."  Ignite The Night will arrive on August 19th, which was his father's birthday.  Chase's dad, who was battling cancer, passed away five years ago. 

Ignite The Night includes four songs from Rice's seven-track EP, Ready Set Roll. An iTunes "party edition" of the album has four extra tracks, including the other three songs from the EP.
