Victoria F’s Ex Chase Rice Just Held A PACKED Concert In The Middle Of A Pandemic, And It Was Not For The Right Reasons

His "The Bachelor" drama doesn't hold a candle to this mess.

If you're a fan of "The Bachelor," there's no way you've forgotten Chase Rice — the country artist who surprised Pilot Pete by having dated one-on-one concert attendee, Victoria F. Now, Rice is back to making headlines, and this time it's actually serious.

The singer held an outdoor concert over the weekend, and the video he posted to his Instagram story makes it clear that COVID-19 precautions were NOT in effect during the show.

The footage shows a large, packed crowd of fans standing shoulder to shoulder with no signs of masks or social distancing. According to the venue, they reduced their maximum capacity from 10,000 to 4,000, and less than 1,000 people were in attendance at Rice's Saturday night show. Still, they were reportedly "unable to further enforce the physical distancing recommended in the signage posted across the property" and are looking into "alternative scenarios" to prevent this from happening at future shows that they currently have booked for this summer.

Fellow country star Kelsea Ballerini took to Twitter to express her disappointment in Chase Rice's decision, calling him "selfish enough to put people's health at risk."

Unsurprisingly, Rice has expressed his dislike for quarantining and other COVID-19 precautions in the past, posting an original song to his YouTube channel called "Dear Corona" back in mid-March. The song, through which Rice speaks directly to the coronavirus, includes the lyrics: "We're gonna show up, hold our drinks high, sing the songs 'bout trucks and beer. You're gonna be met with a big f**** you 'cause you ain't welcome here."

Tennessee is one of many U.S. states that has seen an alarming increase in COVID-19 cases. On the Friday before Rice's concert, the state confirmed 1,410 additional cases, setting a new record for the most positive cases within one day and making it the worst week of the pandemic in Tennessee so far.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
