Lee Brice has already started strong ahead of the release of his second studio album "Hard 2 Love". The country music crooner hits No. 1 on Billboard Country Songs chart with its first single "A Woman Like You", marking the first time ever he tops a U.S. singles chart. He additionally strikes Gold as the song sells more than 500,000 digital downloads.
The song resonates with both men and women alike. "The girl in the song asks, 'What would you do if you never met me?' And the guy goes, 'You want to know the truth? I'd probably be doing just what I was doing then, looking for you.' He's walking a thin line there for a minute, but then he's able to hook it to say something every woman wants to hear," he explained.
Brice is set to release the CD in the United States on April 24. Talking about the title track of the album, the Curb Records artist gushed, "This song sums up who I am in a serious way, but also in a cheeky way. I'm a real guy's guy, and we're insensitive at times, because we're guys. We're hard to love."
Aside from those heartwarming songs, he also recorded something fun like "Parking Lot Party" and an ode to his wife and son in "One More Day". Of the latter track, he said, "It goes directly to Sara and our son, Takoda, because I know how much Sara gives, and I know how much I take. I totally get it."
"And it's like you're always saying, 'Just give me one more day.' Hopefully, in the future, I'll be able to say it was worth it to work so hard. Right now, she gives me the freedom to follow my dream. And she helps me every day with it. This is a gift to the two of them," he concluded.
Country star Lee Brice may score his first number one single when he's over 30 but he has been doing it since the tender age of 8. Born June 10, 1979 in Sumter, South Carolina, Brice learned to play the piano as a child and had his very first performance in a church. "When I was 6 or 7 is when I actually got up in front of the church and sang and played 'Oh How I Love Jesus'," he said. » more
