Chase Rice Takes Fans on a Road Trip with His New Video ‘Key West & Colorado’

by Blake Ells

Chase Rice loves the outdoors. He shares his travels in a brand new music video for “Key West & Colorado.” The video is a nine-day road trip that Rice made with his truck and an Airstream trailer. It began in Florida and concluded in Colorado, as the title of the song suggests. Check out the video below.

The video begins on a beach with a message scrolling across the screen.

“It should not be denied…that being footloose has always exhilarated us. It is associated in our minds with escape from history and oppression and law and irksome obligations, with absolute freedom and the road has always led west,” the video quotes Wallace Stegner.

The song is about a man that’s on a spiritual journey of sorts. He’s trying to get over a girl, and he’s trekking across the country to find his path. And the music video reflects that. Chase Rice spends a lot of time on the beach, drinking beers and enjoying time with friends. Notably, it looks like he had a lot of fun at the Flora-Bama on the Florida-Alabama state line. The early screens from the video also show Rice passing the NASA rocket at the Alabama-Tennessee state line on I-65.

Soon enough, and not particularly in geographic order, he’s outside Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, La. He makes it to Texas, and he does some fishing along the way. While he’s in the Lone Star State, he stops by the Fort Worth Stockyards. As the video nears a conclusion, Chase Rice is hiking the mountainous terrain of Colorado.

An explanation for the NASA rocket popping up may be because the trip was initially scheduled from Key West to Nashville. But the Music City was snowed in, so Rice called an audible.

The new track is part of a new Chase Rice album that’s coming soon. Among the co-writers on the track with Rice was Brian Kelley of Florida-Georgia Line.
