Lee Brice is a craftsman, the kind whose boundless desire to hone his skills and relentless pursuit of perfection are matched only by his humility about the entire process. His latest album, ‘I Don’t Dance,’ is a showcase for his painstaking approach to writing and recording, with his distinctive fingerprints clearly emblazoned on every element of the album.
Released Sept. 9, 2014, ‘I Don’t Dance’ debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and #5 on the Billboard 200, setting the stage for Brice’s meteoric rise in the country music world.
He celebrated the album’s massive release week with performances on the Today Show and Letterman. He also teamed up with Luke Bryan for two sold-out shows in New York: a performance at Madison Square Garden, where Today Show host Hoda Kotb surprised Brice onstage with a career milestone plaque recognizing “I Don’t Dance” as the year’s fastest platinum-certified country single, and an historic concert at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, the venue’s first-ever country concert.
At the 2015 Academy of Country Music Awards, he was awarded two trophies in the “Single Record Of The Year” category as both artist and producer of “I Don’t Dance.” Two weeks later, he was invited to perform “Drinking Class” on NBC’s” The Voice.” The track not only went #1 that week but was certified RIAA Gold, marking his second RIAA certification in less than six months.
