Brice drives all the way to the top
Monday, April 8, 2013
– Lee Brice takes the top position on both the Billboard and Mediabase charts this week with I Drive Your Truck.
Darius Rucker had been atop Billboard with Wagon Wheel. Brice's hit song is Brice's third consecutive single off his sophomore release "Hard 2 Love" on Curb Records.
"I was immediately drawn to this song, so I'm not surprised that fans have connected to it like they have," said Brice. "Since we put it out as a single, fans from across the country have shared their own 'truck' stories through just about any way they can - calling into the radio, on tour at meet and greet, Twitter, Facebook, emails and texts. I'm just glad I got to be a part of this special song and want to thank country radio for helping me share it."
Brice recently announced that he will join Brad Paisley this summer on his Beat This Summer Tour. The first leg of the tour kicks off on May 9 in St. Louis and will hit over 29 cities in the U.S. and Canada through the summer months.

CD reviews for Lee Brice
Lee Brice's self-titled album is the kind we wish Zac Brown was still making. Granted, it doesn't include the faux reggae and jam band tendencies.

I Don't Dance
The cover of "I Don't Dance" features a glam shot of Lee Brice standing in a spotlight, looking more like a pop artist than a country singer. Listeners who prefer their country on the gritty side might be scared off by the pretty cover shot. The music matches the image: pop influenced mainstream country music, in the vein of contemporaries Jake Owen and Kip Moore.

Hard to Love
Lee Brice had a dream run of success with his debut, "Love Like Crazy" - the title track became the most-played song on country radio in 2010. While that set the South Carolina native up for a doozy of a sophomore slump, he sidesteps it with ease. Brice simply has too many weapons - a songwriter's ear, soulful voice and some very able co-writer friends (Rhett Atkins, Eric Church) to veer far off course.
A Woman Like You has already topped the country single charts. »»»
