Chase Rice Gets Butt-Naked to Pull in ACM Awards Votes [Watch]
Chase Rice really, really wants you to vote for him. Like, really. The 'Ready, Set, Roll' hitmaker wants to be a 2015 ACM Awards New Artist of the Year finalist so bad, he's getting naked.
Each year, New Artist hopefuls roll out hilarious videos as a means of asking for votes, but Rice's may take the cake. He is one of several great semi-finalists competing for a place on the final list of ACM New Artist of the Year nominees.
"Man, when I think about it, I've done quite a bit these last couple years," a shirtless Rice begins, rubbing his head. "I've been on tour with Billy Currington and Dierks Bentley. I've been on Seth Meyers, Jimmy Kimmel. I sold out my own tour all the way from Ohio to California to North Carolina down to Florida."
Video clips of Rice's memories play in between shots of him in the field. "That all got me right here," he says, "Walking through this field. Butt a-- naked."
After teasing his fans for a moment, the camera pans down to show ...
... that Rice really isn't "butt a-- naked," but instead wearing a pair of boxers -- his lucky four-leaf clover underwear to be exact. Staying true to his country roots, below his undies are a pair of cowboy boots.
If you're feeling let down by the lead-up, don't. This is just the first of Rice's ACM Awards videos, as he promises that there will be more to come. Vote for Rice -- or your favorite New Artist nominee -- at the ACM Awards website.
