Brice announces new album for September

Monday, June 9, 2014 – Lee Brice will release his new album, "I Don't Dance," on Sept. 9 with the title track already a hit single.

"I Don't Dance," which will be out on Curb, is the follow-up to his 2012 Gold-selling "Hard 2 Love," an album that yielded three number one singles and the CMA/ACM Song of the Year "I Drive Your Truck."

The new disc was recorded in Nashville, with Brice writing 10 of the 13 songs, and producing again. "I wanted to have control over every drumbeat, every lick," Brice said. "It was a lot of really sitting down and thinking about every little piece that goes into a song."

Brice played every instrument on the summer anthem "Girls In Bikinis," building the track from the ground up. "Sirens" was cut live in the studio with a full band (including Brice on banjo for the first time), and other songs grew out of beats, loops and studio experiments, a nod to his love of artists ranging from Bruno Mars to Eminem. The title track originally written as the song for his own wedding dance with wife Sara.

Brice moved to Nashville to chase his songwriting dreams after playing football for Clemson in his native South Carolina. He wrote for artists such as Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw and Garth Brooks, whose recording of "More Than A Memory" launched Brice currently is touring with Luke Bryan.

The track list is:
1. I Don't Dance
2. No Better Than This
3. Show You Off Tonight
4. Always The Only One
5. Good Man
6. Drinkin' Class
7. That Don't Sound Like You
8. Girls In Bikinis
9. Sirens
10. Somebody's Been Drinkin'
11. The Airport Song
12. My Carolina
13. Panama City

Lee Brice CD review - 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.

"What Keeps You Up at Night," which reads like a dirty laundry list of every insomniac's nightmare, opens the disc. The single "Boy" is a »»»
I Don't Dance CD review - 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. The success of his sophomore release emboldened Lee Brice. His first two albums introduced the country scene to his »»»
Hard to Love CD review - 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. »»»
