Country singer Chase Rice was criticized for holding a large-scale concert in Tennessee on Saturday night. Fans uncovered and ignored social distance.
Hundreds (or even thousands) watched Rice perform at the Grass Hill State Prison (the former prison turned into a museum and concert venue) in Petros, about 150 miles from Nashville.
Chase Rice captured the crowd in his Instagram story and wrote: “We are back” as the camera swept through the noisy crowd.
No one seems to be wearing a mask in the camera, while fans stand side by side.
The reimagined Brush Hill State Prison reopened on May 1, and according to their website, they “will abide by the social alienation guidelines.”
Country singer Kelsea Ballerini attacked Rice’s decision to participate in the show on Sunday.
She said: “Imagine being selfish enough to put the health of thousands of people at risk, not to mention the potential chain reaction, and go to an ordinary country concert now,” she Wrote on Twitter.
“@ChaseRiceMusic, we all want (and need) to visit. We only care about our fans and their families enough to wait.”
Another country singer and composer Mickey Guyton Tweet: “Absolutely selfish behavior. Shameful.”
Tennessee reported that Rice’s concert was the day after Tennessee recorded the highest daily increase in coronavirus cases, which was 1,410.
