Chase Rice’s concert in East Tennessee on Saturday (June 27th) night has become a source of controversy. He shared video of fans at the outdoor venue packed should-to-shoulder and not wearing masks as part of an Instastory with the caption “we back.” Angry people blasted Chase on social media, including Kelsea Ballerini who linked to his video writing,
Country Artist Josh Gracin respoded to Kelsea’s comments saying:
Those people chose to exercise their freedom to see a concert.They’re allowed to practice personal responsibility,just as u can by staying isolated & protecting yourself from a virus with a 99% survival rate.If u do that,u won’t come in contact with,as you said,”selfish people.”
Chris Janson also played a concert on Saturday in Filer, Idaho and shared similar footage on Instagram and Twitter, but according to Variety, he deleted those posts yesterday (Sunday, June 28th).
