WATCH: Chase Rice Premieres "Three Chords & The Truth" Music Video

October 17, 2017

When Chase Rice's father gifted him a guitar as a young boy, it changed his life forever. The country star has released a music video for his current single, "Three Chords & The Truth," and it's his most powerful work yet. The footage shows him on the road, on the bus, and on stage, as well as capturing the power of a Nashville dream.

Rice wanted to do something he's never done before when it came time to put the music video together. That is when he decided to change 8-year-old Nicholas Upton's life by making a trip to see him at his home to surprise him with his very own guitar. 

“That cheap $150 guitar changed my life,” Rice shared. “There are people who love music and can’t afford a guitar. Music is everything for me. I can’t think of a better gift to give to someone else.”

Upton is fighting hemophilia and when he's not at the doctor, he finds comfort in life when listening to his musical mentor, Rice, on his country music playlist. 

Chase Rice's new album, Lambs & Lions, is due out November 17.
