NYCS First Impression: Chase Rice ‘Lambs & Lions’

Chase Rice

Chase Rice released his third studio album today, Lambs & Lions, on Broken Bow Records.  After three years, Rice is excited to finally release a full-length album filled with music he is proud of, for his fans. “I was fed up with trying, whether that was trying to be something I’m not, trying to make music that people said I should make or trying to make music I felt people wanted to hear. Instead, I decided I’m going to make music that needed to hear,” He says in a recent press release.  Co-writing 7 of the songs, Rice has put his personal stamp on the LP.

The 10-track Lambs & Lions is a culmination of a maturing artist, creating music with a new label who supports his vision.  “Saved Me” and “Eyes on You”  are standouts, giving an ode to love, faith and small towns.  The first single, released earlier this year “Three Chords & the Truth” is currently sitting in the top 40 on the Country Airplay charts.

“I see you blinking through your blue eyes / How a song can turn back time / You can almost feel the sand on your feet / From the passenger seat / Singing “Anything But Mine”  / And don’t you know we were raised on the radio”

Rodney Clawson and Jamie Moore, writers on “Amen”, spin a beautiful image and testament to faith.  A gospel choir backs Rice’s delicate delivery, filling even the non-believer with conviction.  To close out the album Rice does an impressive, modern day cover of Chris LaDoux’s classic “This Cowboy’s Hat” which even features Chris’ son Ned. The Carolina native does have one party song on the record, “Jack Daniels Showed Up”, a high energy drinkin’ song that will be a great tune for his live set.  Grab Lambs & Lions on iTunes and grab tickets to his show at Terminal 5 on January 18th here.
