Country singer Chase Rice slammed for holding concert with hundreds of maskless fans – New York Post

Nation singer Chase Rice is under fire for holding a big show in Tennessee on Saturday night where fans went maskless and ignored to social distance.
Hundreds, if not thousands, of people enjoyed Rice perform at the Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary– a previous prison turned museum and performance place– in Petros, about 150 miles from Nashville.
Chase Rice caught the crowd in his own Instagram story, composing “We back” as he panned the cam across the raucous crowd.
Nobody in the video seemed wearing a mask and the fans were standing shoulder-to-shoulder.
The re-imagined Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary resumed May 1, and, according to their website, stated they “will be observing social distancing standards.”
Fellow country singer, Kelsea Ballerini, on Sunday blasted Rices decision to play the show.

” Imagine being self-centered adequate to put thousands of peoples health at danger, not to discuss the prospective causal sequence, and play a NORMAL country show right now,” she composed on Twitter.
” @ChaseRiceMusic, We all want (and require) to visit. We simply appreciate our fans and their families enough to wait.”
Another country singer-songwriter, Mickey Guyton, tweeted: “An absolute selfish act. Pity on him.”
Rices performance came a day after Tennessee tallied its highest daily increase in coronavirus cases, 1,410, The Tennessean reported.
