Chase Rice is working on some "unbelievable" new music. ET's Cassie DiLaura spoke to Rice at the Academy of Country Music Awards Monday night, where he spoke about what's to come with his new album.

"The new music's gonna be unbelievable," Rice gushed. "All the songs are written, just me and the guitar. We got a couple writers on some other stuff, but it’s me. It’s me to a T. It’s not trying to be fancy, it’s not pop, it’s not slick, no click tracks. A lot of the songs are true. I mean, songs about dog all over the place on the record. I have a dog now, so Jack's on the record, and he'll probably be in the cover photo somewhere."

Rice said he loves what he's doing now, noting that his new music represents him moving on to "greener pastures."

"I love what I’m doing now," he continued. "It's been a long time from 'Cruise,' writing that, to 'Drinkin' Beer. Talkin' God. Amen.,' which is kind of a bookend of my last ten years, and now we are moving on the greener pastures."

The country crooner also spoke about his brief relationship with Kristin Cavallari, who too attended the 57th annual awards show.

"I have not seen her," Rice said when asked if he had run into Cavallari on the carpet. "I love it when you bring that up. No, I haven't seen her. But I don't think there's no bad blood on my side, so I'll give her a hug."

Cavallari and the country music star were linked back in August, with a source telling ET at the time, "Kristin and Chase Rice have been seeing each other casually. They have hung out in Nashville and are having a good time together and getting to know each other."

The pair has since split, with Cavallari focusing on her kids and her business, and Rice busy training his new dog, Jack, and working on his music.

The 57th Academy of Country Music Awards is streaming live on Prime Video on March 7 at 8: 00 p.m. ET.
