Backstage Country Host – Lee Brice
In 2007 after a football injury sidelined him, Lee Brice decided to move to Nashville, and he began songwriting right away. He scored cuts by Jason Aldean and he co-wrote Garth Brooks’ 2007 single “More Than a Memory,” which was the first single in the history of the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart to debut at number one.
As a singer, Lee has racked up eight number one songs including his latest chart toppers “One of Them Girls,” which follows his #1 with Carly Pearce on “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” and his #1 just prior to that, “Rumor,” which was nominated in the category Single of The Year at the 55th Annual ACM Awards.
Brice is also a GRAMMY nominee, CMT Music Award nominee and a CMA and ACM award winner. He is nominated for two CMA Awards this month for Music Event of the Year & Music Video of the Year – both for “I Hope You’re Happy Now” with Carly Pearce.
Personally, Brice is married to Sara and has two young boys, and daughter.
