Country music artist Chase Rice's hopes of changing a child's life sparked the inspiration behind his new "Three Chords & The Truth" music video. Watch it here!

Directed by Brian Lazzaro, Chase Rice‘s “Three Chords & The Truth” music video was created during his current coast-to-coast Lambs and Lions Tour. Taking footage from the road, on the tour bus, and on the stage, Rice wanted to capture the power of following a dream to Nashville.

Rice admits his goal was to stray away from the expected and produce something special, that (he hoped) could change a child’s life. Rice recalls the $150 guitar that he started out with and changed the course of his life. The video portrays how access to music can make a difference and follows Rice’s search for a fan to receive a prized guitar, which is a step up from the guitar that ignited his musical interests.

Nicholas Thompson, 8, was selected to reieve the guitar and appear in the “Three Chords & The Truth” music video. Chase and Nicholas first met at a photo op backstage at one of Rice’s concerts. The youngster has hemophilia, which means many injections along with consistent trips to the doctor to control the condition. He finds comfort in a mint green set of headphones along with a country music playlist; Rice included.

In the video, the 32 year-old singer-songwriter sits on a front porch beside Thompson and demonstrates the correct form of a D-chord. The eager-to-learn boy stares up at his mentor and smiles, while taking in the musical moment.

The end of the music video captures just what Rice was aiming for— sparking a love for music in someone else. After Nicholas explained that he had just met Chase for the second time, and now knew how to play the guitar, he exclaimed, “Wow, this is the greatest day of my life.”

“Three Chords & The Truth” Lyrics

There’s a Tennessee two lane sky
Shakes the Broadway bars at night
Makes you wanna get a little too close
To her galley girl watch your windshield satellites
It’s a soundtrack to our lives
It’s the only reason why
A kid from Carolina would drive to Nashville to chase a dream
Without a dime
It’s why we drink too much on Friday nights
Raise our hand in the neon lights
Sweet Home Alabama and Ring of Fire
I could sing along ’til the day I die
Why we break and fall back in love
Why we roll around in a bed of a truck
Why we all stop when we hear that one and she whispers turn it up
For a second we’re bulletproof
We get lost in a song or two
The world don’t move, and all I need is you
Three chords and the truth
I see you blinking through your blue eyes
How a song can turn back time
You can almost feel the sand on your feet
From the passenger seat
Singing anything about
And don’t you know we were raised on the radio
It’s why we drink too much on Friday nights
Raise our hand in the neon lights
Copperhead Road and Mamma tried
I could sing along til the day I die
Why we break and fall back in love
Why we roll around in a bed of a truck
Why we all stop when we hear that one and she whispers turn it up
For a second we’re bulletproof
We get lost in a song or two
The world don’t move, and all I need is you
Three chords and the truth
It’s muscle shows to rock n’ roll
It’s a steel guitar that steals your soul
It’s a country song that takes you home again
It’s why we drink too much on Friday nights
Raise our hand and church pew aisles
Amazing Grace and In Sweet By and By
I could sing along til the day I die
Why we break and fall back in love
Why we roll around in a bed of a truck
Why we all stop when we hear that one and she whispers turn it up
For a second we’re bulletproof
We get lost in a song or two
The world don’t move, and all I need is you
Three chords and the truth
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
