Featured Artist of the Week: Lee Brice [VIDEO]
Good things can come of bad situations and Lee Brice is living proof of that!
Lee Brice wasn't always on the road to become a Country-singing artist. He actually went to college on a football scholarship to Clemson University and majored in Civil Engineering. Unfortunately, an arm injury prevented him from being able to throw and that's when things changed. After deciding music is what he wanted to do, he packed up and moved to Nashville!
One of his big breaks came in 2007 when Garth Brooks recorded his song 'More Than a Memory'.
After that, and signing to a Curb Records contract, Brice put out several singles, but his breakout single was 'Love Like Crazy' in 2009 and then putting out his debut album in 2010. This is where big things started happening for him!
His single 'Love Like Crazy' became 2010's Most Heard Song in America on the Hot Country Songs Chart and broke the Billboard's Country Chart record at 56 weeks for the most weeks spent on the chart.
His latest album 'Hard 2 Love' released in April of 2012 and isn't doing bad at all, either. Co-producing every track on this album, his first single from it, 'A Woman Like You', is setting the bar on it's own. The first week it was out, it was iTunes #5 most purchased song and sold more than 30,000 copies.
When they say that now is his time, they weren't kidding! Lee Brice is an artist to keep your eye on to continue to grow and do big things !
