Gazzo featuring Chase Rice, "Sun Turns Cold"

One of Avicii's most lasting country music legacies was the cross-collaboration he encouraged between EDM DJs and country/roots vocalists. Two years after "Wake Me Up" became an international hit, L.A.-based DJ Gazzo enlisted country singer Chase Rice to sing vocals on his anthemic house track "Sun Turns Cold." The song steered clear of country radio, but it became a minor viral hit online, earning more than 500,000 streams. "Working with Chase Rice was an absolute pleasure," Gazzo said upon the song's release. "With such raw talent and an absurdly unique voice, it added a crazy new element to the track." J.B.
