Chase Rice says, “There’s nothing like a fall night out at a music festival. Last time we played the Driftwood festival out in Dana Point, the fans were incredible, and there to take it all in –not just the hits, they knew the album cuts. When we make music it’s with moments like that in mind. We can’t wait to see y’all again.”
