How Chase Rice Met Taylor Swift

| October 11, 2015

Kenny TaylorChase Rice spent all of 2015 on the Big Revival Tour with Kenny Chesney.  It was on the very first show on that tour that he met Taylor Swift.  She was there as a surprise guest at the Nashville show.  Chase explained the circumstances to Country Countdown USA’s Lon Helton:

“It was insane, I was sitting there talking to Taylor Swift, as we were watching Kenny towards the end of his set, and we were just casually talking, AND she was standing with Calvin Harris, it was before the news got out that she was seeing Calvin Harris, it was the first night of the tour when she came out and sang with Kenny.  I was talking to Calvin and Taylor Swift, she introduced him, and in the back of my head, there was this voice asking, ‘What in the heck is goin’ on in your life, you’re talking to Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris as you’re watching Kenny Chesney!  So the more I think about it, the crazier it is.”

What made the moment even more amazing (if that’s possible), Taylor gave Chase some advice.  Chase was one of the writers of the Florida Georgia Line song “Cruise,” and he was wondering if he should do the song during the Chesney tour.  That night in Nashville, he didn’t do the song, and he was talking with Taylor about it.  “I was talkin’ to that first weekend, and I didn’t play it the first night, and I talked to her about it, and she said, ‘You gotta play that song, as a writer on that song, you have to play Cruise, as an entertainer, you have to play it.’  So Taylor Swift is the reason I played Cruise on the Chesney tour.”
