Chase Rice Unveils “Oklahoma” Music Video Featuring Southall
Chase Rice has unveiled a music video for “Oklahoma” featuring Southall. The fan-favorite track is featured on the country singer’s 2023 critically acclaimed I Hate Cowboys & All Dogs Go To Hell album.
Rice’s video for “Oklahoma,” directed by Kaiser Cunningham, was filmed during his Way Down Yonder Tour across three dates. Fans will see the singer-songwriter on stage performing with Southall, as well as footage of his band and crew while out on the road.
“This song was inspired by a trip I took to Oklahoma where I ended up staying for about a week longer than I was supposed to, bird hunting and playing music,” reflects Rice. “When we recorded it with Read Southall – who is as Oklahoma as it gets – we just let everyone keep jamming out to finish the song. That created this really cool moment that fans have embraced at our shows, so we wanted to capture that live energy in this video and celebrate everyone who has come out to see us on the road.”
“It was an opportunity to shed light on the somewhat obscure reasons I hold my home state of Oklahoma so near and dear to my heart,” adds Southall. “At first thought of the collaboration, I will admit, I was a little nervous. I hardly ever write with other songwriters. However, after the recording process and hearing it all come together, I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of it.”
Rice has just launched his 2024 Get Western Tour with special guest Owen Riegling. In addition to life as “Uncle Chase” and babysitting for the first time, duck hunting with his dog Jack, and even squeezing in a trip to Hawaii in recent weeks, he is also currently in the studio working on new music.
