Chase Rice Eyes On You #1 on ACC with Kix Brooks

ACC with Kix Brooks is heard Saturday’s 8am-Noon on CISN Country 103.9 Edmonton and Country 105 Calgary.

The #1 song on American Country Countdown is Eyes On You from Chase Rice.

Eyes On You is Rice’s second Billboard Country Airplay #1 as a writer. Chase co-wrote Florida Georgia Line’s debut monster hit Cruise which reigned for three weeks in 2012 and led the Hot Country Songs chart, which combines airplay, streaming and sales data, for a then record 24 weeks.

Eyes On You is from the LP Lambs & Lions and written by Chase Rice, Chris DeStefano and Ashley Gorley.

“It’s a love song as opposed to being a lust song” Rice tells Billboard. “People love love, and it paints a cool picture. It’s universal. Every girl wants to be seen that way. Every guy whether they’ll admit it or not, because we’re stubborn sometimes they want a girl like that, and they want a girl to make them want her like that. It speaks a lot of truth as to what people want in life.”

Before Chase’s first #1 Eyes On You he had two top ten hits, Ready Set Roll #5 2014 and Gonna Wanna Tonight #2 2015.

Prior to Country music fame Chase Rice was a linebacker for the University of North Carolina, NASCAR pit crew member for Hendrick Motorsports and placed second on the 21st season of CBS’s Survivor in 2010.

“All I can think to say is, this isn’t my first #1 at all” Rice tells Billboard. “The ups and downs over the last few years and all the songs that paved the way for Eyes On You have changed my perspective on life and this business for the better. I wouldn’t change a thing.

Yes, you work your ass off for your first #1, but so do the people around you who make it all happen, from the songwriters, musicians, band and crew to country radio programmers and many more. They are the reason this song has found its way to the top of the charts. This is our first #1 together.”

April 2018 they filmed the video for Eyes on You in Mammoth Lakes California. Chase Rice had been dating someone nearly a year and she appears as his love interest in the video. While he admits it’s generally not a good idea to use a girlfriend in a video, fortunately this particular situation worked out well.

Not only are they still in touch, but Rice’s ex even gave the video a stamp of approval before he released it. “She’s having fun with it” he says. “She’s just enjoying the fact that she got to do something like that because that’s not her life. She’s not an actress she’s in medical school, which is what I love. So we’re enjoying it. It’s not one of those heartbreaking things.”
