The musical line-up for MissionFest 2022 will be headlined by CHASE RICE.
With more than 2.2 million albums sold and over 2.1 billion total streams, plus a legion of passionate fans at his high-energy concerts across the globe, Chase Rice has established himself as a powerful force in Nashville and beyond – yet he genuinely sees current single “If I Were Rock & Roll,” available everywhere now, as the launching pad for music that says what he wants to say, how he wants to say it.
The song serves as a follow up to his three-part project, featuring his latest No. 1 hit, “Drinkin’ Beer. Talkin’ God. Amen. (feat. Florida Georgia Line)” and Platinum-certified Top 10 hit “Lonely If You Are.”
This is the same gravelly-voiced Chase Rice fans first fell in love with years ago – but better. Freer. Unbeholden and uninhibited, somehow capable of evoking Chris LeDoux and The Chronic, campfire singalongs and stadium anthems, all at once.
The new music builds upon the success of his sophomore album, which featured the Double-Platinum, two-week chart topper “Eyes On You” – Rice’s first No. 1 as an artist and the most-streamed song of his career. Lambs & Lions followed, which debuted at No. 1 onBillboard’s Top Country Albums and No. 3 on the all-genre chart, producing a pair of Top 5 hits; “Ready Set Roll” and “Gonna Wanna Tonight.”
In addition to selling out arenas with Kane Brown and stadiums with Kenny Chesney, Rice also opened for Garth Brooks to 70K+ at Detroit’s Ford Field in early 2020 and has consistently sold out 3,000+ seat venues on his own headlining tours.

Morgan Wallen in January to 88 first week stations, the #1 most added single of the week, and was Top 25 after just six weeks.

ERNEST appeared alongside 90s country legend David Lee Murphy and labelmate Ben Burgess on HIXTAPE: Vol. 2 track “Red Dirt Clouds” last fall, and his podcast Just Being ERNEST is in its third season, hosting guests like Keith Urban, Diplo, Jason Aldean, Bobby Bones, and Craig Wiseman, with many more to come.
Bailey Zimmerman is a twenty one year old singer/songwriter born and raised in the small town of Louisville, IL.
Growing up, Zimmerman’s father owned a trucking business and the two of them would listen to hour after hour of country radio on long hauls across state lines.
Back at home, Bailey’s mom instilled in him a life-long appreciation for the power chords and edgy vocals of 80’s hair rock.
At the age of sixteen, Zimmerman got his first job at the local meat processing plant and hasn’t stopped working since. From long hours on the gas pipeline, to late nights of backbreaking roadwork, Bailey embodies the old school American values of a hard work and dependability. Zimmerman applies the same steadfast mentality to his music.
Through his plainspoken charm, contagious enthusiasm and genuine portrayal of life on the back roads, Bailey has amassed a following of over three hundred thousand loyal tik tok fans.
His breakout single “Never Comin’ Home” was characterized by the straightforward authenticity for which he is known and loved. His second release “Small Town Crazy” is a hometown tribute, summer anthem and drinking song, delivered in the grit and gravel of Zimmerman’s unmistakably Southern drawl.
Bailey is co-managed by Simon Tikhman/Chief Zaruk of The Core Entertainment and Chris Nilsson/Scott Frazier of 10th St Entertainment
