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.
"I had been playing on my own and learned a few chords and the direction of how to play, so I had known before that well enough to play with both hands and learned to actually play the piano and sing. That was when I felt like I was addicted." Ticking performance on his list, little Brice tried his hand on writing songs at the age of 8 onwards. While in high school, he entered several talent contests and won them.
