Chase Rice Celebrated His First Time on the Radio With Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley
Chase Rice first found fame on television, in 2010, thanks to his successful stint on Survivor: Nicaragua; in fact, it wouldn’t be until a few years later that he would hear himself singing on the radio for the first time.
Rice, who helped write the hit “Cruise” for Florida Georgia Line, was, a bit ironically, cruising in a car with FGL’s Brian Kelley when he first heard himself on the airwaves. Below, he shares the experience with The Boot.
It would go back to [SiriusXM's channel] the Highway. It was a song called “Buzz Back;” I think was what it was. That was back before I had anything really, really good to put out there.
I was actually in the car with Brian Kelley from FGL. We were still living together at the time, and we’d written that song together, and we were just laughing: “This is crazy, man. I’m on the radio!”
They’d been playing [a couple of Florida Georgia Line's songs] a little at the time on Sirius, but it was my turn.
