I think most of us know “Love Like Crazy,” but until recently I couldn’t have told you who sings it. Now I know, Lee Brice. And I think a lot of people have learned his name since the release of that song.
I got a press release yesterday that I wanted to pass on to you guys. The release will introduce you to Lee, with a bit of what he’s been doing, and what he has planned for the near future.
Curb Records recording artist Lee Brice is heating up the Billboard and Country Aircheck country singles charts, cracking the Top 30 this week with his latest single “Love Like Crazy” and it is about to ignite.
Written by Doug Johnson (Mike Curb Music/Sweet Radical) and Tim James (Warner/Chappell Music) and produced by Doug Johnson, this inspiring mid-tempo song tenderly captures sage advice on how to make young love and a career last a lifetime. The record is from his forthcoming debut album Picture Of Me to be released in 2010.
The song is already getting rave reviews from fans, critics and country radio who are all stepping up to show just how much they Love Lee Like Crazy.
“Lee is an amazing singer and songwriter. We’ve been playing ‘Love Like Crazy’ for awhile on KNIX, and this is the week to step on the gas…to prove once and for all this is a hit!” – Mark Medina, KNIX Phoenix, AZ
“It sounds great on the radio, holy moly!” – Nate Deaton, KRTY San Jose, CA
“Lee just moved up to POWER. We’re hearing some great feedback and it’s an excellent song!” – Captain Jack, WKMK Monmouth Ocean City, NJ
When Lee Brice first entered the country consciousness with the Top 30 hit “She Ain’t Right” in 2007, his voice carrying over FM radio waves like honey trickling through lines of melody etched in leather, his rugged sound and raw emotion spoke for a new generation of Nashville recording artists. As follow-up singles “Happy Endings,” “Upper Middle Class White Trash,” and current Top 30 hit “Love Like Crazy” have doggedly climbed the charts, Brice has continued to change the landscape of country with images inspired by the Carolina backcountry where he was raised—of a tightly packed car heading from Myrtle Beach into the sunset, of a trailer park full of Cadillacs, of 58 years of marriage lived in a 2-story house on Maple Street.
Not only has Brice established himself as one of the most promising new voices in country, he has proven himself as one of Nashville’s top tunesmiths, with cuts by Jason Aldean, Adam Gregory, Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton, and Garth Brooks to his credit. “More Than A Memory,” the Garth Brooks smash that became the first song in Billboard chart history to debut at #1, seems more like a dream to Brice.
And, the dream continues to realize as Brice is currently on the road headlining shows and opening select dates for Country Music superstar Clay Walker. In between tour dates, he is putting the finishing touches on his forthcoming debut album Picture Of Me.
More later – I’m off to work! Have a super Thursday!
