October 24, 2013 [Photo: Bose Better Sound] If you are expecting Rice’s music to be a carbon copy of “Cruise,” Rice hopes you will be surprised. “The goal was not to sound like Florida Georgia Line - as similar as we are, and probably always will be - though we go in our different directions. I also didn't want to sound like Garth Brooks, Keith Urban, or whoever. The most important thing was to create our own sound. We just wanted to make good music. You can call it country, pop, or hip hop. Who really cares?” (via Billboard) Congrats to Chase Rice for his #1 country album & top ten album in all genres on iTunes!
