South Carolina singer songwriter Lee Brice is about to explode. Brice’s new single, “A Woman Like You,” was just certified Gold and also snagged the number one spot last week on both Billboard Hot Country Songs and Mediabase charts. It’s also Top 5 on the iTunes Country songs chart online. Now, with big-time momentum for the first time he’s bursting to release his second Curb Records album called Hard 2 Love, due out April 24.
The album is rich with material including “A Woman Like You,” written by Johnny Bulford, Phil Barton and Jon Stone. It’s a song with the quality of being hard for anyone NOT to like it. Brice says, “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…I think people dig it because the guy is being pretty darn honest.”
Hard 2 Love, will likely be the second single and is also a solid delivery from Brice with his rich way too turn a phrase. His voice reminds us of the goods he brought with “Love Like Crazy.”
Also on the album and already on iTunes is the – just cheesy fun enough to go number one – party anthem “Parking Lot Party. A song that could finally show Brice fans the fun side of this good time guy.
The somber “I Drive Your Truck” is sure to be an album favorite and is another heartbreaking stretch for Brice who digs deeper with the track.
Next up Brice is all over the place with a very visible launch week including Fox & Friends, Tonight Show With Jay Leno, the Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson and more.
Brice says, “Everything on the album reflects who I am right now and where I am in my life.”
