Chase Rice is on the mend after undergoing surgery on Tuesday (May 15th). According to the singer, he tore his pectoral muscle during the recent filming of the video for “Eyes On You,” a track on his latest album, Lambs & Lions. Chase shared the news on social media on Tuesday with a video, writing “Surgery a success, and got a final cut of the 'Eyes on You' music video. Damn good day y’all.” In the video, Chase explains, “I was in Mammoth Lakes, California and we shot a music video for ‘Eyes on You.’ I said it was going to be epic and I showed later in the day that it was. I had ice on my chest . . . so I tore my pec and today I just got surgery for that.” Despite the surgey, Chase says he'll hit the stage for his scheduled show in Myrtle Beach, S.C. on Friday (May 18th). His injury may slow him down a little, but Chase tells us exclusively that his live show is patterned after two of Country music's biggest superstars. “Well, Garth Brooks, that’s where I learned the rowdiness, probably, and that’s just who I am as a person. I was a linebacker in college. That’s just me. I’m an intense person when I get on stage, and then one guy I got to learn from hands-on was (Kenny) Chesney. I went to his live shows all the time, and Blink 182 even. I went and saw one of their live shows way back and I was like, ‘Man, these guys are rowdy! I like it!’ And then Chesney, like I said, two years ago I got to tour with him and see it live, see that action every single night and he brings it every single night, and getting to see that live, and not only know that I want to do something like that one day when I grow up kind of thing, but get to learn from him hands-on was pretty cool.”

Chase sits in the Top 26 on the Billboard chart with “Three Chords & The Truth.”
