One of the most notable releases on this week’s New Music Friday playlist is an extremely vulnerable track from Chase Rice titled “For A Day,” and it is sure to tug on everybody’s heartstrings ❤️
Given that Rice has previously performed this heartfelt ballad on the Grand Ole Opry stage AND included it as a secret track on the physical copy of his most recent album, I Hate Cowboys & All Dogs Go To Hell, fans are thrilled that they are finally available to stream the song on all platforms.
While the album itself pays tribute to the talented singer-songwriter’s late father, so much that the cover art is a photo of Rice’s dad himself, “For A Day” is extra special in that regard.

The country superstar took to Instagram to share what the track truly means to him, sharing a video of him performing a stripped-back version of the song with a very sincere caption
“15 years ago today I lost my dad. I had no idea then what kind of impact that would have on me. It wrecked me for 10 years without me even fully knowing it. This album has been a healing process for me that I’m grateful for. He never got to see me play live. Dad this one’s for you, and anybody out there who would give anything for just one more day,” he wrote.

This powerful release comes just a few days after the launch of Chase Rice’s 10-part YouTube series, with new installments dropping every Tuesday.
The series gives fans a behind-the-scenes look into the creation of I Hate Cowboys & All Dogs Go To Hell, which hit all music streaming platforms this past February.
A press release revealed that the series will give viewers a first-hand look into the talented singer-songwriter “turn[ing] his rural home into their 24/7 workspace, bringing in a live band with no click track to capture a rugged, authentic sound over the course of an immersive two-week session – all of which was captured on camera for fans to now witness.”
The North Carolina native native took to Instagram to celebrate the launch of his 10-part YouTube series, posting a teaser video with a caption that reads, “My favorite record I’ve ever made, want to show y’all how these songs came together and how all these badass musicians and producers changed my life. New episodes dropping every Tuesday on YouTube go check ‘em out.”
We will be tuning in every Tuesday to see what secrets Chase Rice will spill in this intriguing new series, but until then, it is safe to say we will have “For A Day” on repeat until further notice…
