To call Chase Rice a go-getter or a self-starter might be a bit of an understatement. The independent artist has created a national following without the help of a record label or radio promotion.

But that has changed: Chase recently signed with Columbia Nashville—home of Kenny Chesney, Tyler Farr, Casey James and Leah Turner—and now has scored a major career milestone: his first gold record, for his single “Ready Set Roll.”

In a release, Chase says, “There’s just something about this song that works for me, whether people do or don’t like it—for more, there’s something special about it. And hopefully I was right about that, because now I’ve got my first gold record.”

“Ready Set Roll” is about to hit the Top 20 at radio, but the gold status establishes that at least a half million people are crazy about the tune.

Chase adds, “That’s unbelievable to me, as an independent artist. . . . And this song still has a lot to life left on it. Hopefully we can go platinum now!”

Country Weekly congratulations Chase, Columbia Nashville and the entire team!
