Chase visits his dad’s grave in video for “Amen”
Chase Rice just dropped the video for his latest single “Amen,” which has him returning to his hometown to visit his father’s grave.
“We recorded the video and all of the footage before I had ever even recorded the song. That’s when you know something is pretty special when it falls into place like that,” he tells “People.” “To me, it’s a higher power that allows something like that to turn out so well. This was all for me to go home and see my dad.”
Chase’s father passed away in 2008 and as you can imagine shooting the footage for the video was quite emotional.
“The hardest part for me was that I didn’t want to fake anything — I wasn’t going to fake cry, we weren’t going to re-shoot me walking up to the grave, it was all one take,” he shares. “This video is 100 percent real.”
