Lee Brice: GRAMMY.com First Listen
On Sept. 9 GRAMMY-nominated country singer/songwriter Lee Brice will release his third studio album, I Don't Dance. Ahead of the album's release, GRAMMY.com has your exclusive first listen to the piano-driven track "Drinking Class," which will be available for download at iTunes beginning Aug. 12.
Born and raised in Sumter, S.C., Brice began penning songs at age 10. After an arm injury ended his football career at Clemson University, he moved to Nashville, Tenn., to focus on music and landed a publishing contract with Curb Records. In his first year with Curb Brice co-wrote nearly 150 songs, including tracks for artists such as GRAMMY nominee Jason Aldean. Brice subsequently co-wrote Garth Brooks' "More Than A Memory," which topped Billboard's Country Singles chart in 2007.
In 2010 Brice released his debut album, Love Like Crazy, which climbed to No. 9 on Billboard's Country Albums chart on the strength of the hit title track. Brice's sophomore effort, 2012's Hard 2 Love, peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 and earned Brice a 2013 GRAMMY nomination for Best Country Solo Performance for the Billboard Hot 100 hit "I Drive Your Truck."
Co-produced by Brice, I Don't Dance features 13 tracks, including the hit title track — which the singer wrote for the first dance at his May 2013 wedding to Sara Reeveley and topped Billboard's Country Airplay and Aircheck charts — and "Drinking Class." A 16-track deluxe edition of the album is also available.
Brice is currently on tour throughout the United States with dates scheduled through October, including select dates on Luke Bryan's That's My Kind of Night Tour.
