Chase Rice, nominated for New Male Vocalist Of The Year
What You Need To Know: Chase Rice started like many of his fellow New Male Vocalist Of The Year nominees, by co-writing songs for other country superstars, like Florida Georgia Line ("Cruise.") However, it wasn't until the budding singer competed on Survivor that he gained national exposure—his song "Buzz Back" played during the reality show's reunion special that country music fans really started to take note.
In 2013, Chase released a 6-song EP, Ready Set Roll, and its title track peaked at No. 1 on the iTunes Country album chart. Since then, he's traveled the country, playing with A-list artists like Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, and The Cadillac Three.
