"I grew up on a 15-acre horse farm in Florida, and later North Carolina. Instead of playing video games, I grew up hunting, riding four-wheelers, and getting outside and getting dirty. We went to church on Sundays and learned about Jesus, and then my dad would drink a beer that same afternoon while my mom cooked for me and my brothers. I don't really know what people call ‘country’ anymore, but that was, and is, my version of country and I love it,” said Rice.
