Chase Rice Debuts New Song, ‘Gonna Wanna Tonight’ [Listen]
Chase Rice is using YouTube to preview his new music. ‘Gonna Wanna Tonight’ hails from his album ‘Ignite the Night,’ and though it’s a familiar down-home theme, he knows it’s right for his fanbase.
“People talk about how they’re tired of hearing, get a girl in your truck, drive her around, take her down the dirt road, however you word it,” Rice tells Radio.com, “I brush that off real quick. Trust me, these people I’m seeing at these shows are doing that. And they’re doing that because that’s their life. I’m singing about it because that was my life before I was touring all the time.”
‘Gonna Wanna Tonight’ is one of the only songs on his album that the singer didn’t write. It was penned by the hands of Shane McAnally, Jon Nite and Jimmy Robbins, but it may be Rice’s next single. He says it’s a truthful account of living in the country and fesses up to what most guys are thinking — whether or not their lady is ‘Gonna Wanna Tonight.’
“He’s praying the whole night that she’s going to have the same vision of the night as he does,” Rice dishes. “In this particular song, you’re basically just saying to the girl, ‘Girl, I hope you’re gonna wanna tonight.’ It’s a fun anthem chorus that gets real big. It’s not the same rockin’ melodies that I’ve had. It’s a little bit softer side.”
‘Gonna Wanna Tonight’ is now available on iTunes. The full album is set for an Aug. 19 release date.
