FOX News Radio Entertainment Correspondent, Michelle Pollino has the scoop on the Country music stars making headlines this week:

FOX Country. I'm Michelle Pollino.

He's already proven to us he can outwit and outlast, but now former "Survivor" reality show contestant, Chase Rice sets out to prove he's a true Country star with his latest "Ignite the Night"-- which includes 'Ready Set Roll', the gold-certified single. Chase told FOX News Radio, he wanted to make the album feel like being at one of his shows and because he doesn't have a record label--

Rice: "That allows me the freedom to say-- You know what? Why cant we say this? You know? We don't have anyone telling us what we can and can't do, so let's just do it and see what happens."

"Ignite The Night" will be released August 19th.
