When the coronavirus pandemic struck America in mid-March 2020, Chase Rice had to cancel his plans to tour his new album. Though disappointed, he found a silver lining in the situation. Sittin' here, drinkin' beer, talkin' God, Amen
Killing time, living life with some downhome friends
When the world's gone crazy, man, it all makes sense
Sittin' here, drinkin' beer, talkin' God, Amen, Amen
Rice explained to American Songwriter
the song is a celebration of the year everybody has been forced to have. "I've sat around more fires and dinner tables," he said. "I've had more deep conversations with friends and made friends that weren't friends before."
"I can't think of a better song to celebrate 2020, as opposed to people continuing to say it's been the worst year ever," Rice added. "It has been brutal - but also a blessing."
