March 10, 2023 – Denver, Colorado – “My wife and I got married outside of Steamboat Springs, Colorado, along a county highway that overlooked the valley,” recalls West Virginia-born songwriter Rodney Rice. “When we were leaving town she said, ‘You should write a song about this place.’” “This place,” specifically, was the Rabbit Ears Motel, a Steamboat Springs staple marked by its classic neon sign. Today, Rice released a new song from his upcoming self-titled album; a rambunctious country shuffle called “Rabbit Ears Motel.” Echoing classics from the likes of Pure Prairie League, the Supersuckers, Jason & the Scorchers, and Jimmy Buffett’s first couple of albums, “Rabbit Ears Motel” is about so much more than a place to stay in Colorado. Telecaster licks jump around pedal steel fills between Rice’s refrain of “Checking out when I check in to the Rabbit Ears Motel.” But what’s it really about? “The power of suggestion is real. So is the power of love, encouragement, and support,” says Rice. “I have been lucky enough to find myself surrounded by great people who have provided me with an abundance of love, encouragement, and support.”
