Country singer Chase Rice is in the heat of criticism for hosting a big concert in Tennessee on Saturday night where fans hid and neglected social distance.

Hundreds, if not thousands, of people watched Rice perform at Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary – a former prison turned into a museum and concert hall – in Petros, about 250 kilometers from Nashville.

Chase Rice captured the crowd in his own Instagram story, writing “We’re Coming Back” as he turned the camera on in the noisy crowd.

No one in the pictures appeared to be wearing a mask and the fans stood side by side.

The reimagined Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary reopened on May 1 and, according to its website, said it would “follow the guidelines for social distancing.”

His compatriot country singer Kelsea Ballerini castigated Rice’s decision to play the show on Sunday.
