Hot off the heels of his two-week No.1 smash, “Eyes On You,” Chase Rice is back with a new single and tour to go along with it.

Just released to country radio, “Lonely If You Are” shows fans a bit of a different side of Rice’s music.

“‘Lonely If You Are’ starts out simply with just an acoustic guitar, which is a different sound for me than what people might be used to, but it also goes back to how I started in Nashville – when it was just me with a guitar writing songs,” Rice explains. “Lyrically, it’s telling this special girl that even though we might not officially be together right now, ‘go ahead – have a good time with your friends… but when that all fades away, give me a call. I’ll be there.’”

Rice is taking “Lonely If You Are,” and his long list of other hits, on the road this fall with his headlining AM/PM Tour. Launching August 1 in East Providence, RI, the tour was named after a line in the chorus of the new single.

“It could be A.M. or P.M. / It could be middle of the week or the weekend / Baby it ain’t too late or too far / Just call me ’cause I’m lonely if you are,” he sings.

Cale Dodds, Chris DeStefano, Devin Dawson and Jon Nite will each serve as support on select dates of the AM/PM Tour. See below for more details.
