This week, Chase Rice debuted his emotional music video for "Amen." The whole visual was filmed with only one camera and a GoPro. Check it out here!

Although country music singer Chase Rice tends to be a happy-go-lucky kind of guy, he shows a different side of himself in his brand new music video for “Amen.” The visual portrays a trip by the Florida native to his father’s grave, and all of the emotions shown are straight from the heart. Rice recalls life was not easy following his father’s sudden death in 2008, “When I moved to Nashville, I completely lost myself. You get into the party scene… and all this followed after losing my dad. You lose direction in life, you lose purpose in life. I was chasing everything I could to make myself feel better and to give myself purpose when none of those things would really do it, even music.”

Luckily, the “Ready Set Roll” singer was able to get his life and career back on track. Now, instead of taking his family for granted, Rice visits his dad’s grave in North Carolina as often as possible. “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. To me, it’s a higher power that allows something like that to turn out so well,” Rice says. “[This] was all for me to go home and see my dad,” Rice told People.

“Amen” Lyrics

Maybe your granddad kept his dogtags hanging on the rearview
And maybe your mama drove you around in a Chevy Nova bright blue
Might’ve got your 16 first date, yes at a slider in the drivethrough
Down Main Street, she was so cute, ended up just friends
If it sounds like it could’ve been you, or it’s somewhere you might’ve been
Can I get an amen

For a roman candle sky
A July praying for rain
Yeah, sparks out the window, cigarette
With her silhouette caught in the flames
The keys to a fix-it-up dream
A love, and a first-crush heart
And to not knowing the secrets of life
But damn sure knowing where it starts
Amen, amen, amen

And maybe you shot some bullet holes through tail of a windmill
Stuck a cross in some flowers by the road on the edge of a wheat field
And maybe that scar on your hands from a midnight parking lot disagreement with one of your buddies
So you squared off, then you made up
With a tailgate cold beer apology
Just some memories that’ll always be

In a roman candle sky
A July praying for rain
Yeah, sparks out the window, cigarette
With her silhouette caught in the flames
The keys to a fix-it-up dream
A love, and a first-crush heart
And to not knowing the secrets of life
But damn sure knowing where it starts
Amen, amen, amen

Yeah, amen
Ooh, amen

For a roman candle sky
A July praying for rain
Yeah, the sparks out the window, cigarette
With her silhouette caught in the flames
The keys to a fix-it-up dream
A love, and a first-crush heart
And to not knowing the secrets of life
But damn sure knowing where it starts
Amen, amen, amen
Ooh, amen
