Lee Brice made a splash in the 2010s with his music that defied the popular bro-country. By doing so, he focused on country ballads, creating songs that were intimate and vulnerable. To stand out among many country musicians, Brice mixes pop and rock melodies into his country songs.
Lee Brice's career began in the background, songwriting for musicians like Jason Aldean, Keith Gattis, Cowboy Crush, and Garth Brooks. He is best known for co-writing the song "More Than a Memory," which became among Brooks's top charting songs on Billboard. In 2007, he began performing his songs, signified by his debut single "She Ain't Right." Testing the waters, he followed the single with two other songs: "Happy Endings" and "Upper Middle Class White Trash." All three records faired well and reached the country charts.
His debut album, "Love Like Crazy," came afterward in 2009. The album's similar named single would then spend the next year maintaining a spot on Billboard's Hot Country Songs charts, a significant achievement since it made history as the song that spent the longest in the charts. His sophomore album, "Hard 2 Love," came out in 2012. This album became his debut on Country Airplay. Two years after, his third album, "I Don't Dance," spawned singles like "Drinking Class" on the Country Airplay once again. After the continuous success, Brice toured for several years before going back to the studio to record his fourth album. Finally, his self-titled album came out in 2017.
His momentum continues its strong reach in the 2020s. He began the decade with the release of his fifth album, "Hey World." "One of Them Girls," the album's main single, topped the Billboard Country Airplay for three weeks, the longest time one of his songs spent on the top of the chart.
Brice has received many accolades for his amazing music. These recognitions include four ACM Awards, a Grammy nomination, and two Academy of Country Music Awards nominations.
