Jesse Rice was reared in the historic river town of Conway, SC about 15 minutes northwest of Myrtle Beach. He moved to Music City in 2002, and began honing his songwriting skills while working at EMI Music Publishing. He would quickly network with rising artists and writers, securing his first publishing agreement in 2007 with Artist Revolution.
His first #1 came with the co-penned song Cruise by Florida Georgia Line. It would go on to sell more than 10 million copies to receive the Diamond certification from the Recording Industry Association of America. It would also become Billboard’s longest running #1 single, and take home ACM, AMA, CMA, Billboard, BMI and SESAC Awards.
Jesse’s songs have been cut by Florida Georgia Line, Nelly, Chase Rice, Kristian Bush of Sugarland and Colt Ford. Jesse has also co-written with top-talent like Lady Antebellum, Cole Swindell, Jon Pardi, Florida Georgia Line, Colt Ford and Chase Rice. His last release The Pirate Sessions I & II also featured guest appearances by Florida Georgia Line and Chase Rice. The Pirate Sessions III premieres at online retailers on Friday, January 27th.
