Chase Rice is celebrating what he calls "the biggest week of my entire music career," as the singer-songwriter has inked a new record deal with BBR Music Group and BMG. Rice joins Broken Bow Records, the home to Jason Aldean and Dustin Lynch.

“I can’t tell you how excited I am to join the BBR family,” Rice admits in a press release. “I knew from the moment we began talking that the people here understand where I’m coming from, and I can’t wait to share all the new songs we’re about to make together. In fact, we’re so excited, we promise we’ll have new music for you within a month.”

Rice has seen much success on his own, without a major label backing him. He is a co-writer on Florida Georgia Line's "Cruise," and his 2014 major label debut Ignite the Night had two Top 5 hit singles in “Ready Set Roll” and “Gonna Wanna Tonight.”

“Chase has a track record of connecting with fans whether it is socials, concert tickets, singles, or album sales,” Jon Loba, EVP BBR Music Group, says. “He knows himself and his audience and has formed a rabid following. We are so excited to have him join our family and can’t wait for everyone to hear some incredible new music.”

The 31-year-old Rice shared the big news with fans in a nearly two-minute video clip, taking them behind-the-scenes on the day he signed with his new label. Next up is new music — his long-awaited Lambs and Lions album is said to be coming this year.

"Probably the biggest week of my entire music career to date. We've had some unbelievable stuff happening," Rice says in the clip. "I have a new family. BMG/Broken Bow Records, they have heard the record that I've been working on for the last three years. They love the record. They're ready to rock, they're ready to roll. So, we have signed a deal with them. We've got a record coming out early this fall. I'm so pumped about it. It's been too long."
