Chase Rice has achieved his second chart-topper as an artist with his latest single “Drinkin’ Beer. Talkin’ God. Amen. (feat. Florida Georgia Line),” this week. The track also reached No. 2 on Spotify’s most-streamed Hot Country songs of 2021 thus far.
The single follows his double Platinum-certified, two-week chart topper “Eyes On You,” which was one of the Top 5 most-played songs on country radio in 2019. “Drinkin’ Beer. Talkin’ God. Amen.” marks a full circle moment for Rice and Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley, who first topped the charts as co-writers on FGL’s Diamond-certified hit “Cruise” when making music together as new-to-Nashville roommates more than a decade ago.
“Sharing a No. 1 song together not once, but twice, is more than we ever could have imagined years ago, when we were just three friends chasing a crazy dream,” notes Rice. “I’m so grateful to the fans and country radio for connecting with and supporting this song the way they have. There’s no better feeling as an artist than knowing that writing and singing your truth resonates with people… The journey of this song has been so special. Not only did it give me, Brian and Tyler the chance to work on music together again; it was also written on the bus at one of my last live shows before the world shut down–and now it’s sitting atop the chart just as we’re getting back to enjoying live music together. The timing couldn’t be more perfect.”
“There is always an inspiring energy when the three of us come together,” add Kelley and Hubbard, who co-produced the song alongside Rice and Corey Crowder. “You could just feel it in the house back when we were roommates, and it is amplified that much more now when we collaborate. Our first No. 1 changed all of our lives in more ways than we could have ever imagined, and we’ve certainly lived a lot of life since then. To be celebrating our second No. 1 together is surreal and a full circle moment. We’re so thankful to Chase for his friendship over the years and sharing in this crazy dream of ours.”
