Brice finds his "Drinkin' Buddies"

Friday, April 26, 2024 – Lee Brice is ready for the summer alongside Nate Smith and Hailey Whitters in their latest single, "Drinkin' Buddies," out today.

The track, written by Zach Kale, Chris Destefano and Justin Wilson, and produced by Ben Glover and Jerrod Nieman.

"We all got 'em, we all need 'em, so let's raise a glass to 'em," said Brice. "Cheers to all our Drinkin' Buddies out there. Huge thanks to Nate and Hailey for bringing this thing all the way home. Can't wait for y'all to hear this one."

Smith said, "When Lee asked me if I wanted to be a part of this song with him and Hailey, it was an immediate yes for me. I was honored. I am a huge fan of the both of them and this song just brings such a fun energy. I have had a blast collaborating with them on this."

CD reviews

CD review - I'm In Love Hailey Whitters smartly plays with words on the title track to this six-song EP. "He's in a Chevy/And I'm in love," she explains contrastingly. With its upfront mandolin part, the track nicely resembles Whitters' hit, "Everything She Ain't," which is reprised on this release - albeit more acoustically. It may not be as conceptual as Whitters' full-length, "Raised," was, but this smaller offering nevertheless covers familiar and enjoyable Whitters territory. ...
CD review - Nate Smith Nate Smith has a wonderful, quivering voice. It's a voice often pushed to its limit, though, because so many of the songs feature pounding drums and roaring electric guitars. It's a whole lot of pounding and roaring because it – like many (too many?) contemporary country albums – is extra-long. The deluxe edition, in fact, sports 26 songs and clocks in at nearly an hour-and-a-half. All this loud music is just a bit much, though, by the time all's said and done. ...
CD review - Raised Hailey Whitters' "Raised" album is very much a biographical collection. From the title cut to the extended family sung about during "Big Family," Whitters sings again and again about her relatives and upbringing. She doesn't have to say the words 'small town' for the listener to know without a doubt she's telling us about country living. It's also an album built upon solid, traditional instrumentation, which makes it all the better. ...
