Chase Rice Proclaims He’s ‘Going Back to Normal Life’ as He Returns to Touring

by Katie Maloney

I think it’s safe to say that people are pretty much over having to cancel their plans to see their favorite musicians perform live.

Well, Chase Rice is with you! Since the beginning of the pandemic in early 2020, Rice has been one of the most outspoken country singers when it’s come to opposing restrictions. In fact, he received criticism from others in the industry last summer when he played for a packed crowd of unmasked fans as COVID-19 numbers were surging.

“In my opinion — you gotta keep people safe and all that — I mean, f–k this. They gotta let us go play and the people that are healthy can decide if they want to come or not,” said Rice during an interview in 2020. “That’s what the American Constitution is all about, is us having the choice.”

The CDC has recently reported that 93 percent of all newly reported COVID-19 cases come from the Delta variant. Additionally, unvaccinated people account for more than 97 percent of all current COVID-related hospitalizations. Nevertheless, the rise in restriction reinstatements has many people, including Rice, frustrated.

“This thing’s over,” said Chase Rice during a recent interview. “If you don’t think so, move on. It’s over.”

Rice also suggested that anyone who is still concerned about the virus should simply stay home. As for him, he’s partying.

“We’re going back to normal life, and if you don’t want to do that, stay home,” said Rice. “We’re partying, country music’s back, music’s back. Live events are back and I couldn’t be happier.”

Currently, Chase Rice has tour dates scheduled through early October of this year.

Chase Rice Slams Uber

Coronavirus isn’t the only thing that gets Chase Rice all fired up. He’s also not always a fan of Uber. As fans probably already know, Rice is not afraid to speak his mind. so, when he had a negative experience with Uber recently, he took to Twitter to voice his frustration.

He wrote, “Dear @Uber. Stop canceling rides for no f*cking reason. Y’all’s concept is awesome, but how u treat us is horse shit. I’m just tryin to go see my nephew, and Dave sucks. 1 star Dave.”

We’re sure Dave wasn’t happy about the rating. But all of Chase Rice’s fans stood behind him. They even shared their own negative Uber experiences. One fan commented, “Yup- got canceled on in a snowstorm while I was pregnant, couldn’t find another driver for another half hour!” Another fan commented, “My favorite is when you order Uber eats and they accept your order knowing they have no drivers available. I just wanted stuffed crust Papa John’s pizza.”

Other fans tried to convince Chase Rice to hire them as his Uber driver.

One fan wrote, “I got you… Where ya at??” Another replied, “Sh*t, I’ll Uber you around.”
